I found that quote on the internet tonight. It is a Chinese Proverbs and kind of describes where I’m at right now. I’m wishing for a lot of things right now, but I don’t exactly have the will do them. Writing this blog entry is a major step for me because right now I must admit my soul is not healthy, and neither is my mind, body, or spirit. I’m 45 and I feel like I should be doing so much more and should have accomplished certain things by now.
Well, I know you are probably asking, how can she give me advice when her life is so screwed up? But I’m not writing this to lecture or give advice. I’m doing this first and foremost to replenish my soul and re-establish a healthy lifestyle. Believe it or not, there was a time when I felt good about myself and I want that back! Secondly, I want to share my journey and experiences in hopes that it will help others and make them stop and think. Life is not a dress rehearsal and there are no do-overs. Whether you are religious, spiritual, or not, I think we all know that we have been charged to take care of our particular body, so why not try to do it in the best way we can. And how do we do that? By respecting, nourishing, and taking care of it. Tonight, I am making a commitment to do that and more. I am tired of feeling like crap and I want to see if healthy living is truly what it is cracked up to be. Well, that’s all for now. Need to go sleep, which is also really important for our overall health!
