With my 27th birthday approaching tomorrow, I thought about this idea of good things in life. How sometimes we get distracted by other peoples accomplishments, and then melt away in our struggle to accomplish things. But really, good things take time. Amazing people don’t just happen, it takes hard work, and devotion. You don’t just become fabulously fit, and in love with yourself over night. You need to apply the right mind set to it, and work, work, work! If you don’t invest all your time and energy in the positives, how do you expect good things to come to you? Everyone wants to better themselves, not just physically, but emotionally, financially, spirituality too. Life is not about what you are given, it’s really about what you decide to create. Sometimes things don’t end up how we imagined, and that’s okay, because that only means that something better is on it’s way! Good things take time, so be patient and enjoy the little things in between! The sun is shining, and it’s 58 degrees in New York today! I can’t help but find myself beaming in anticipation of summer!
Patience and strength, two words which can easily be defined, but when faced with the reality of both words, easy is the last word I would describe them as. A week since my last post, I could have never imagined how important those two words are in life. I was in the ER on Sunday, and had medical complications due to a medication they had prescribed me. It was here, laying in my worst position that I realized that health is not just a thing we need, it is a lifestyle we need to obtain. Patience and strength, have guided me to this place, and without them I would lost. Since my ER visit, I have turned back to what I am truest to, and that is my belief in healing thy self with natural remedies. As long as you follow your gut, it will never guide you wrong. Along with some patience, strength, and a whole lot of support, anything can be done! You just have to trust yourself, and believe, things will always get better. Stay Strong! And keep finding your best lifestyle, for finding a better you!
My original plan of coming along on this journey together of health and wellness, I did not factor in the rainstorms in between. Although, we can always find the rainbow at the end of the storm, we first need to bare the pouring rain. I have read blogs that are 100% positive and uplifting, but for me that’s not always a reality. If we didn’t have speed bumps, where would we gain our strength? As I found myself receiving an IV today, I sat in a dark room, wondering how was I going to motivate someone today? Feeling like I had gone backwards in my progression, I kept telling myself what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. I began to worry about my job, and all the other factors of my life, before I snapped out of it. If I don’t have my health, then what do I have? Yes I am cruising slowly over a speed bump in a rainstorm, but the rain will stop and then the journey continues. So I can’t say that I worked out with you today, but I will ask you to be thankful for your health if it’s a good day. Be thankful that you can enjoy nature and even the job you are at. Be thankful if you had even a short brisk walk outside. But most importantly be thankful that you are staying true to finding the best possible you!
