We all have experienced that little nudge feeling before in our lives. Many of us perhaps didn’t know it was our own self trying to get our own attention. That gut feeling, the little voice in our head, thinking of something and seeing it…
My why began as my children, I was doing it for them, making healthy choices for them. Well if I have learned anything from being a mom its that my children, by far, are my greatest teachers. They have taught me the greatest amount of compassion, understanding, patience, love, growth. Opportunity to rise up, make changes to be a better person and mom. As much as I do this for my kids, I do this for me.
Ive become much more in tune with my body over the past couple years. Not only feeling more in tune with my body also achieving living a much more authentic truth as well. Freeing from any past negative situation or experiences and really living my best life!
I have gained control of my health, also slightly lost control, regained and then one day it stuck. Suddenly after years of that voice telling me to just do it – make a healthy choice.
Step 1 – Making the choice – its all about the mindset
Step 2 – Making the shift – realistic and beneficial
Step 3 – Living the life – authentic and true
Its so easy to get into the rhythm of the everyday. Go, go go and perhaps missing out on key signs, signs that we don’t always recognize if we aren’t paying attention to ourselves closely. Almost becoming numb and just living the day to day.
Ive been learning to do this. Floating about in step 3, not exactly sure what step 4 is but going with the flow. The fear of the unknown has never been easy for me, its also helped me grow. The more authentic I am – who I am around, what I choose to do, the foods I eat, the places I go, being true to me and my word all plays an important part to become more in tune.
I am learning that my body has been talking to me, yet there were so many years I did not show it love. So many years that I was ignorant, made poor choices and completely took my health for granted.
Guess what, people change and so can our health.
I am optimistic that any health challenge I am faced with I will only come out stronger, more in tune with my body and soul and healthier. Any challenge is an opportunity to uplevel with purpose.
Choosing holistic health to support daily life. Investing in me with time. Understanding, patience and love.
Being authentically me.
Sometimes this comes as a gentle nudge, other times a life changing experience, either way if we are listening, we truly benefit from this life lesson. Only room for positivity, gratefulness and truth.
I am thankful for the nudges which have directed me to the life I am living and even lately the opportunity to once again uplevel my life and living.
Pay attention to yourself. The little messages you hear in your mind. Even something as simple as thinking… “do I really need this” or “its just one it wont hurt” and your body/mind is later screaming at you in various ways.
It really truly is the whole picture, not just “eating healthy”. I could just eat healthy and think Im doing good, it is good don’t get me wrong, but its so much more than that. Its the thoughts you think, the people you are around, the products used in the home and on the body. Its a shift in your lifestyle. Choosing to be a better person – to be the best person you can be and living authentically.
Life lessons can only be experienced, not taught.
We are all the creator of our being, captain of our ship, architect of our life.
I want my kids to know their mom has always tried her best, has made some awesome choices and also some bad choices in life, but rose above, works hard yet has realized its better to work smarter. That any challenge I am faced with or we are faced with, we can over come and rise above. Change, challenges also mean strength. Whether that challenge is within ourselves, as a couple, for our children or as a family. Sometimes that little nudge, when listened to with compassion and love can be everything. ❤
