Therefore, when a woman changes her life for the better, her entire family (whether or not she has children) generally benefits. She sets the tone. The well-being of the family and of society itself depends upon women becoming and remaining healthy. Part of creating health is understanding the power of female energy and its implication. The health of a woman's loved ones is directly linked to her own personal health. So we owe it to ourselves first to take the time we need to heal.

My mom told me about studies regarding divorce that show that a child of divorced parents fares well when the mother is strong and well. That's what I'm working for with Little N. So, for my part, I want this quote to be actually, factually true. I want to see evidence, in my life and in Little N's, that my good health brings good health to him.
I want to be a healthy, fully engaged, aware, sensing, expressing, good working me, for him. I want to provide him with at least one example of a person thriving in the world. Imperfect, sure. Fumbling plenty of times. Loving him all the time. Whole and wholly me.
