It may be a serious illness.
Then again, it may be just about getting older when stuff starts to misfire and malfunction.
It may be the inability to get pregnant or sustain a pregnancy.
It may be temporary illness—like the flu or a sinus infection or motion sickness when you’re trying to have a good time.
It might be a broken bone or a food allergy or a slow metabolism.
And menopause. Let’s throw that mind-bender into the pile.
Sometimes it’s a disease, sometimes it’s a germ, other times, it’s just parts misbehaving, formed wrong, all whacked out.
It’s when your body frustrates you or frightens or feels like not your friend.
In this episode, however, I share a perspective with you that just might help you find some delight in showing up just as you are—and because of that, offer a freedom and lightness to those around you.
