Reflections on Health
2018 #day58 ~ as good a time as any to share my recent Reflections on my health journey.
Health isn’t promised to us so why do I take it for granted?
Why do I choose what brings Ill-health and disease?
Yes I “can” eat whatever I want. But why do I want to? It’s not like I can say I don’t know better.
Every day I wake up with choices to be made. Every day I move in the direction of greater health and wellness or I decline, no standing still.
Food is fuel and the type of fuel I put in the tank is up to me, no one else.
NOTHING tastes as great as health FEELS, this I have learned personally. It’s not a sacrifice to say no to sugar laden foods, it’s not even about being deprived. So what if you ARE deprived? Would you rather be sick 😷 🤒 🤕 and satisfied with eating all you crave or Healthy and deprived of sugar, dairy, toxins, chemicals?
Its not about the challenges experienced trying to eat out, it’s not about explaining to friends who don’t understand, its not about dealing with cravings, it’s not about having to wait 10 hours for flax crackers to be ready, it’s not about taking snacks with you everywhere you go, it’s not about going cross-eyed reading labels, it’s not about disliking to exercise….
The plain and simple truth is, its saying YES! to health, mental clarity, rejuvenating sleep, vitality, joy, laughter, being ALIVE, full of passion and living a vibrant life. If that matters enough to you, then you’ll do WHATEVER it takes, without question.
I am choosing to celebrate saying yes to my health, with every choice I make, with every bite of food I put in my mouth, with every way I move my body, with how I show myself love and grace. I will focus on what I’m doing right, not the challenges or difficulties; they are only there because I let them be, because I focus on them.
