Waiting For Cancer: Part One 08/03/2011
This is a new way of writing for me. This is cracking open a new window of possibility. Be gentle with me and I will return the favor.
It's almost been a month since I sat down with the infamous Mali Apple of The Soulmate Experience in the lovely town of San Rafeal.
You see, many months prior to this visit Mali and I had began working together on my body image perception.
After both of us got carried away with our work (Mali with her book and me with my Soul Sessions) the conversation around my body got put on the back burner. As it had many other times in my past.
So here we are, Mali & I - sitting as this groovy little pizza joint called Pizza Orgasmica (are you turned on?).
Mali turns to me and says, 'okay - let's talk about this.' I knew right away what she meant because since the last time we were together face to face I had put on a few LBS and at that moment I felt truly disgusted with myself. I was wearing an over-sized T-shirt and jeans that were too tight. I didn't feel cute, sexy or in the least bit appealing to any human eye, especially my own.
As the conversation got rollin', Mali hit a rather strong chord. She said 'So if a doctor came up to you tomorrow and said, Megan - you have cancer and the ONLY way you are going to live through this is if you completely change the way you eat and move your body. Would you do it?' My answer was a loud, clear and sudden OF COURSE! Mali then asked me what I knew was coming, 'so what are you waiting for?'
My answer, cancer.
I let that thought settle in as Mali got really excited about the line we had just come to terms with, 'waiting for cancer'.
I mean, it applies to so many different things. Waiting to leave a bad marriage, waiting to lose weight, to eat healthier, to leave the job that's killing you, to travel the world, to experience financial freedom.
When you think about it, we all have our own version of how we are, in fact, Waiting For Cancer.
