Last week I spoke about catching myself colluding with the "negative" and shared that Life Goes On. Whatever we decide to see (obstacle or opportunity), we get.
This week I am reminded that my body is a gift and I am entitled to nothing. I am not entitled to the air I breathe, the water I drink, the food I eat, the thoughts I have or my connection with others. Humbling really.
Rather, I am entrusted with this body. I am given this body as a gift to treat it with respect and reverence.
Why am I saying this?
As the year comes to an end, and the holiday season arrives, many of us feel stress in body, mind, and spirit. We "push" through to the end of the year, promising ourselves in the new year we will make "positive" changes.
Perhaps we are neglecting our body by making poor food choices, skipping our movement routine, and not sleeping enough.
Some of us feel mental stress-- work, family/relationship, money issues.
Others of us feel spiritually distressed-- the above plus feeling alone or disconnected.
This is a reminder to stop, look, and listen. Don't wait until January.
Take an inventory of how you are presently caring - or not caring for your body, mind and spirit.
Then choose one small action step to take. Maybe you will join my FREE, 3 Day Refresh which starts next Monday, December 4th.
My friends, we are entrusted with this body. It's a gift we are given. From this perspective we begin to make choices that naturally support our well being. Meaning, we begin to replace bad habits that negatively affect our physical, mental , emotional and spiritual health with ones that help us thrive.
We shift from seeing healthy/positive changes/choices as "work", "should", "have to"... to seeing them as taking responsibility for this gift we have been entrusted with..that we are not entitled to.
Taking responsibility for our body, and in turn our life, is powerful way to live. And in my experience, the most powerful motivator for lasting change.
