My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around. / Federico Fellini /

How many of us have experienced this? We push our bodies to their limits. We think we are indestructible. We think we are eternal. The reality is that our bodies can only take so much. Drinking, smoking, poor food choices, stress, exposure to toxins, strenuous physical activity, lack of sleep…these all contribute to our bodies eventually screaming out. “STOP” Much like Federico Fellini, my relationship with my body has changed.

The beginning.

the_beginning_oprah_winfrey_everyday_awakenings

My bestie called the day before the final show, to say the last tickets were going on sale right now and did I want to go. Did I want to see Oprah? Of course I did. So on a whim and toiling with mother’s guilt of leaving my 4 month old…
