we say and do so many things because they are EASY...we settle, we don't mess with the status quo, we don't rock the boat...not even our OWN boats! ROCK YOUR OWN BOAT! let's challenge ourselves to be the BEST that we can be! let's get and stay healthy and strong to more fully enjoy our limited time on this planet, to be more available to the people around us and more present in our own lives! a truly healthy body works to develop a healthy mind, to develop a healthy perspective on life and in relationships and regarding oneself, and a healthy body helps develop a healthy attitude as we move through difficult times in our lives...when our bodies are in crisis, whether we realize it or not, whether we admit it or not, WE are in crisis...
I don't want to make room for even a minute of living in crisis! i want all the room in my spirit and mind and body to be brimming over with care and compassion and understanding and forgiveness and personal affirmations and FOCUS on everyone around me, whether they are just passing through or staying for a while, whether they bring peace or drama with them, i want to be a healthy place for people to be, a healthy person to be around, that others may leave time with me feeling healthier themselves!
may we all CHALLENGE ourselves beyond where we are now, in our thinking (our world and social views), in our capacity to listen and understand others, and in our care for our own bodies!
here's to our WHOLE health!
"this year, as i celebrate the holidays and enjoy the company of my family and friends, i will make food choices that support my health.
