I embrace each day as I live my life with ease, joy, awareness, and creativity. Resistance to what must be accepted melts away as I gladly move forward to change the things I can as I play the hand I was dealt.

This is a challenge but it is also a critical point in the lesson of life. Whether you believe that you are spiritual being having a short term (say 100 years) physical experience or whether you believe that the ‘here and now’ is all that there is, it behooves you take care of your physical body.

As James Arthur Ray points out, an inflexible body is the sign of an inflexible mind.

As I learn to connect more and more with my true Self, I give up all pain and suffering that I have caused myself by my misperceptions, beliefs, attitudes, actions, and choices. I fully accept responsibility for my life and find deeper meaning behind all experiences.

There are some people who might say that plastic surgery is only for those who have body issues. They think it is all about the models and movie stars who are trying to get looked at and need to be perfect in face and body. This is not necessarily true and in fact many people of all professions are now choosing cosmetic surgery to fix imperfections in order to find more lucrative work in their own field.
