It only takes ONE match stick to burn down a building that took a 100 men to build
All the efforts and gains you make towards change
can be dashed into a pile of dust
with ONE wrong decision.
Don't you know it may take you 7 DAYS to lose 5 pounds but ONE "stupid" DAY of gluttony and not "caring" to put on 5 pounds! (was the Easter candy really worth it?)
WHY ... W H Y... oh.... W H Y
do we do that to ourselves? (pig out)
(see answer below... hint: it has to do with balance)
That, my friend is my Journey and my Quest.... for "self discovery" of why and how I can throw "common sense" to the wind!
Here's a story...
As I passed by a co-worker the other day, I asked "oh, you look tired". The flood gates opened and she poured out for the next minute (seemed like several minutes) ....the excuses "I'm not sleeping.... It's this cold gloomy weather... I have no energy.... my body is achy... I think I'm getting sick" ........etc
I then said
"so, what really happening in your life ?"
ahh, she then looked me in the eye's and softly spoke
"I went to my 26 year old Nephew's funeral 2 weeks ago, and
last night I found out my Aunt has stage 4 Cancer"
People, People People..... I have said it and will continue to preach it
it's all about balance
it's all about balance
When you feel a physical aliment... S T O P and take a deep breath and ask your self this question:
What is happening around me that is affecting me:
PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY and SPIRITUALLY?
YOU "WEAR" YOUR STRESS IN YOUR BODY
if you don't properly take the stress your facing and constructively deal with it
using your MIND, your BODY and your SPIRIT
you'll be a walking mess
ALL THREE need to be engaged when faced with STRESS- LIFEHey Did you hear me say balance?
1. PHYSICAL: EXERCISE and GOOD NUTRITION
2. SPIRITUAL: PRAYER (talking and listening to your Creator) and
READING your INSTRUCTION MANUAL (Bible)
3. MIND: Stopping Negative WORDS (can't, never, always) and THOUGHTS
SPEAKING words of encouragement - POSITIVE thinking
So, you want to get ready for the summer! Be in shape to wear a bathing suit and Swim and Ride a Bike, Play a game of Bocce ball?
It only takes ONE moment to make a Decision to CHANGE your Lifestyle (life)
It takes BALANCING your Moments to make your CHANGE into Healthy Habits
Ciao and Salute!
To your Health and Wellness
