Check out this double dandelion, which chose to partner with another dandelion and share the same stalk and produce two flowers, it chose to be strong and live. We should take after nature more often.
Last week I asked how many of you were sick and tired of being sick and tired. Not surprising, many raised their hands.
It’s so true. We live in a country that thrives on sickness instead of promoting wellness and healing. How many times have you sat around a dinner table and the conversation turns to health?
I just cringe when I’m surrounded by people my age or older (and sometimes much younger) and it’s horrible to hear the devastating stories.
You do realize it doesn’t have to be that way? Just because our country is built on sickness doesn’t mean it has to stay that way.
We are all empowered to do something about it. The often harsh reality is, many of us just don’t know what to do or don’t really want to.
I’m really not trying to be mean, I’m just stating facts. If you want to learn, you’re in the right place, if you’re not sure, stick around and decide.
This past week I’ve been surrounded by some mighty empowered women who are determined to make a difference and a mark in their respective industries. Why? Because we aren’t willing to settle for the way things are when there truly are solutions to be found.
I’ll use myself as the example. I don’t act my age, I don’t look my age, and I don’t feel my age. You might be saying, well that’s great for you, but I feel old and my body has aches and pains it didn’t used to.
I say to you, “Is that what you want?” You have to decide if your health is important to you. Only when something’s truly important, will you actively do something about it. Not until then.
If you feel like I’m being in your face about this, guess what? I am. This is your wake up call. None of us are getting any younger. The fact of life is that we age. You can choose to do it well or you can choose to get old and look and feel it too.
Which do you choose? I chose to live life years younger “Naturally”. Why? It’s more fun. I have energy, I have less stress, I have less illness and aches and pains, and I have a positive attitude and I love life.
You do know that this is all a matter of choice don’t you? Your attitude, how you view your life, how you choose to fuel your body, when you choose to work out or not work out. Whether your attitude is one of negativity or it’s one of positivity. Whether or not everything is someone else’s fault and you are always the victim.
Stop it right now. I realize that stuff may have happened to you. Guess what, it happens to all of us. Recently I shared with you that I lost my career of “many” years unexpectedly and very badly. I’m still optimistic and positive. Why? I chose to be, for my sanity, my health and my life.
You see, if I would have chosen to sink into the abyss that really wanted to swallow me up, I can’t begin to image where I might have ended up. I was depressed, I was sad, I was mad, I was the victim, I, I, I…..it was all about me and woe is me…..me, me, me….I even hated hearing about it, so I can’t imagine how others around me felt. None of us likes to hang out with Debbie Downer.
I knew I couldn’t live there. I had headaches that lasted for days on end. My monthly cycle showed up and stayed for 3 weeks. I couldn’t sleep well. I felt exhausted. The list goes on and on. I was grieving. I took the necessary time to process, get through my junk, forgive myself and prayed a lot.
Today, a little more than a month later, my perspective is fresh, new and one focused on living and being good to me.
If I don’t, who’s going to do it for me? Who’s going to do it for you? I want to be happy, healthy and live an abundant life, don’t you?
Remember, it’s your choice. Choose wisely!
