In this extract I am reading a moment from Whatever where Alex is doing a chakra challenge.
She is inside her orange sacral chakra, doing her best to stay balanced on a surfboard no matter what life throws at her.
Up until now Alex has hated her body because she thought she was fat.
In this part of the story, although she hasn’t embraced her feminine curves yet, she is appreciating all that her body does for her.
By the way, what you hear her avoiding is something that she used to binge on.
She eventually learns to have this something in moderation, but for now it’s wise for her to avoid it so that she doesn’t fall off her surfboard!
