I took some time today to look over these blog pages because I'm thinking about revamping some things as I finish up my nutrition certification. As I read over my previous posts, I reflected on how far I've come over the past year and realize just how thankful I am for my progress. It hasn't always been smooth sailing, and sometimes it feels like one step forward and two steps back, but the *not giving up* is the gold!
I decided to slightly edit and re-share these insights with you because I know how valuable they were/are for me, and I hope they can shed some light for you as well...
~ All of whatever lacks in my own experience of life and love is within me. It can't be found outside of myself. It can't be filled with someone else's presence or inanimate objects.
~ I must always seek and find ways to love myself. It is then that I remain fulfilled. In loving myself, I can then be loved.
~ Perspective is a jewel. Sometimes taking a step away from a situation, as well as spending time alone, is the key to seeing the answers we need.
~ Life is happening and passing. Now... And now... The extent to which I pay attention to the experience is up to me.
~ Being too busy and filling my time with overcompensations will always dull my joy. I can be fulfilled in any moment, if I choose.
~ I am perfect just the way I am. Really. (and so are YOU!) :)
Wherever you are in your journey - whether it be health related or anything else - remember that the inner journey is the one with the highest payoff. You can't be healed or fixed with external measures. You must first go within.
Yours in health and always love,
