“Dear Body you’ve changed! As of late, you’ve been greeted by the mention of how much weight you’ve lost. True. What is also true is that in 2018 you experienced very testing levels of variations in hardship, insecurities, injuries, scrutiny, learning how far you can go, you danced, you made love, you had inconsistent eating and sleeping patterns, you superceded my mind when it told you give up, you taught me more about the things you love, the things you hate and what you just won’t take – man!
I tested you! But the toughest was you experiencing a pain that you will one day be courageous enough to speak about (sic),” – read part of the letter.
“I have an intense love for you now. I hear you. I feel you. I get you. I understand you. I love you. And so, in 2019, I want to dedicate my time and energy with others to help them find a true love for themselves, in their truest form. Just as they are. I want them to dance, to live and love life. Wherever it shall take me, I will go. It’s TIME! (sic),” – Bontle added.
