If you are unsatisfied with where your body and/or life are right now, do yourself a favor and draw yourself a roadmap for healing your pain and transforming your life. The process goes like this:

  1. Figure out point A: Write down what is working in your life – in terms of your body, living situation, finances, relationships, occupation, sleep, diet, all of it. Also write down what is not working in your life – same categories.
  2. Figure out point B: Write down where you want to be in your life, in each of these categories.
  3. Figure out your toolbox for hitting the road: Write down your skills, talents, and resources (money, property, personal and professional connections, complementary and alternative medicine network, etc)

Put on your creative thinking cap and figure out how to get from point A to point B, using the tools in your toolbox. You might even use some of your tools (like really smart friends) to figure out how to use your other tools.

Just remember this: No matter how fucked up your body and life are, chances are there is at least a little something you can capitalize on. Start from there.
