According to Buddhism, all human beings are masters of their own destiny.
Over 25 years of working in Cancer Care, I have held the hand of a small child who was terrified of being left alone for treatment. I've given my heart to help a man in so much pain that he couldn't move a single muscle. I have listened to the story of a lady with no family and no support and provided a safe place for her to share. Most of all I have nurtured and loved them all unconditionally.
I just didn't realise what this was doing to my own health. I was giving everything within me to nurture these beautiful people facing their extraordinary challenges.
In 2016, I weighed in at over 120kgs. I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I was insulin resistant, prediabetic, and developing food allergies. Clinical depression and severe anxiety were my normal. My coping skills involved alcohol and food. I had yo-yo dieted my whole life, always ending up fatter and sicker. I went in search of something else.
I found my body wisdom. My obese body was a protective mechanism for unspeakable trauma, current stress and future fears and worries. I now have effective coping mechanisms and a positive outlook on life. My body shows signs of health, my weight is normal and I am no longer an alcoholic.
I still love and nurture my patients with cancer, but I'm no longer on a path to chronic disease. I now give from an abundant heart that is overflowing with love and connection. I choose health and wellness. I choose happiness and connection.

We are masters of our own destiny, masters of our own life and masters of our own bodies.
