“When the Body Says No” by Dr. Gabor Mate.

It’s funny how things seem to come full circle when you least expect it. Years ago, in my “previous life” as I have come to call it, a dear friend shared this fabulous book with me, “When the Body Says No” by Dr. Gabor Mate. This friend had recognized my go, go, go nature with my business and life pursuits. He was encouraging me to slow down. But I didn’t see it- I was caught up in the buzz of success and I pushed for bigger, for better, for more… I sadly tucked this book on my bookshelf and I sadly chose to not to hear my body “saying no” …simply because I didn’t take the time to listen. I didn’t take the time for “me”. After having had to navigate the most trying of health diagnoses, I have had to come to learn many of these profound lessons as shared by Dr Mate, the hard way. I only wish I had read this read earlier. I encourage you to Take time to pause- look inward and reflect. Who knows, maybe it all could have been deflected had I just taken the time to slow down. Take time for you. Time is precious. Today, so many women collectively united st the Vanvouver Convention Centre at the 3rd annual Zili C.A.R.E. Conference. What a fabulous day! So honoured to be a part of it all!! Well done Zili!! ❤️
