We focus a lot on physical health but let's not forget what's really important. Make time to reflect and heal spiritually and emotionally. Living a healthy life should be done so with a holistic approach. Think about it... How often have we tried to "get fit" then quit or "fail" because of some emotional baggage or internal situation we have yet to rid ourselves with? I'll be the first to admit that I have a daily internal struggle with whether or not to let go of certain things or react to it.
When I was younger I was very reactive, aggressive and confrontational. I held many grudges... Over time it left me quite empy, cold and sometimes insensitive to situations. Most considered me very intimidating because of my overbearing and controlling demeanor. It took some soul searching and drawing myself closer to God and appreciating that some things were meant to be left alone or "released". Negative things or people don't DESERVE your attention and energy. Don't let it draw you in... The more you let it, the more of your energy it consumes. Eventually, it becomes so overwhelming that you become that very energy. You feel it, you think it and ultimately you spread that negativity to other areas of your life to include other people. Negative energy is like a virus and it's very contagious. If you do not feed it, it will starve, die and/or go away. If you find it difficult to avoid or ignore, turn your focus inward and upward for spiritual guidance. Remember this, if it doesn't make you happy or healthy, it serves no purpose. Let it go and leave it to God to handle.
Regardless of your beliefs, pray for strength and peace of mind. If you don't pray, at least practice quieting your mind with meditation and breath awareness to calm you and ground you. That's a start, just do your best and try not to let anyone steal your joy or shift your spirit, focus and energy on to unproductive and negative things. It's just not worth it.
You are better than that and you do have a positive purpose. Have a blessed day!
Peace & Love,
The Fit & Happy Diva
