While I was at Esalen in Big Sur, CA last weekend, I went hiking by myself and with my dear friend, @annevandewater. I was in awe of the gorgeous scenery, but also of what was happening in my body. I felt connected and at home. For years, I dreaded exercise, and not because I was lazy or could not find the time. Every single time I would exercise, I would feel markedly worse. I had no idea why, and it was not until decades later that I would discover a way to the other side. I first had to heal from the aftermath of cancer, unpack the debilitating effects of trauma and learn how to eat for my {unique} body. I made many challenging last cuts and had my silicone implants removed- only then did I finally understand why people enjoy getting physical. When one’s body is in harmony with itself, movement is enlivening and therapeutic. As I hiked through the forest, these thoughts danced in my head: a) change is possible, b) the truth lives in the body and the body never lies (yes, I love that one), c) there is no one prescription for any of our bodies and d) I am so happy to feel so alive in this vessel after so many years. Our healing journeys can be long, complicated and frustrating, but we never know where they will take us. {Some photos by me and some by @annevandewater}
