Weight has been an issue in my life since puberty, all those years ago. Unhealthy habits and stress compounded the issue. Catapulting me into years of yo yo dieting and bouts of depression. For many years I kept my light hidden. But despite the frustration, I continued my spiritual journey and Qigong training. My life gradually came into balance (for the most part).
Now, as an elder, I realize that those chubby fingers along with the insecurity and low self esteem gave me a gift. Countless hours of contemplation; a deep capacity to enjoy my own company; a path toward dreaming, learning, practicing and achieving a modicum of self mastery.
So now I engage the world… chubby fingers and all.
