soul positively me opens the doors for many conversations surrounding spirituality, being positive, self-acceptance, love, being thankful, and life in general. I wanted to take a moment to address our health and remind us all (because I think we already know) how important it is to take care of ourselves.
Yesterday I had an opportunity to spend time with an inspirational young lady (I’ll share more about her at a later date) who is heading up an effort supportive of women who are living with HIV/AIDS in the Denver area. We started with a wonderful lunch consisting of several tasty salads, and I was reminded of the importance of my health. We had rich conversation about healthy families, parenting, healthy self esteem and attitudes. It is amazing how all of these tie together. Healthy bodies included.
I have a tendency to start off strong, whether it be working out at the gym or eating healthier. For one reason or another I end up only being able to testify about “the time when I…” Of course I have my strengths just like you, but I seriously want to eat healthier without falling off of the wagon. My reason is clear. I know my body is God’s temple. Staying as healthy (mentally, physically and spiritually) as I can allows me to live a quality life, especially as it relates to the work I believe God has given me to do. Yesterday’s luncheon inspired me. We must be healthy so we can support one another.
Am I the only one?
I believe many of you have something to share about health. What has worked for you? What tips or resources can you tell us about? Do you have any healthy recipes? How do you make time? What are your greatest challenges?
I hope you will share your thoughts. We all have some answers. What are yours?
peace and continual blessings to each of you…
