52. The Link Between Self-Care and Destiny


When I am anxious, nothing calms me more than trimming sections - ¼ inch at a time - from the bushes in my back yard.

The patriarchal society and programming that I describe in Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom has a lot to do with how you think about your body and care for yourself. This belief system has left women with the idea that a woman's body is not "good enough." And nothing could be farther from the truth.
