Prepent Day 5: Taking Care Of Your Body

“Are you taking care of your body?” A doctor asks and I pause to ponder a seemingly simple question. Who is the “I” that is taking care of my body? Or is it the other way around and IS there a difference? This new week of Prepent begins with a focus on the inner circle of being and what’s in need of fixing. Am I taking good care of my body? A wise woman once taught me to hear: Where does it hurt? And then: How will I will my own healing?
