Whether the ideas have slowed to a trickle or you’re just feeling curious and in the mood for a little reflection. The Honest Perspective weekly prompt is an invitation to ruminate on an idea and see what arises. A gentle nudge to look at things from a different angle and stay open to a new perspective.

Be it poetry or prose you’d like to submit to us, or a journal entry for your eyes only, take a moment to pause at some point during your week and set your pen free.

The body, we all have one but we don’t all like our own. The views of others, cultural perception and the stories we receive as we grow up, all contribute to how we feel about the physical structures we walk around in. What has been your relationship to your body?

Taking care of our bodies is never as easy as it seems as it should be. Often the ways in which we ‘treat’ ourselves are counterintuitive to what would actually help the body feel good and perform at it’s best. Has your body let you down or have you neglected it?
