I see it over and over. Folks get the urge to get in shape, change their diet, reduce their stressors.
Mandatory overtime, a child gets sick, maybe an old friend comes to town and you become host and tour guide. When the smoke clears, the desire to adopt a healthier lifestyle is a faint memory.
When you get the inspiration to make a change in your life. Seize the time. Don’t allow yourself to get distracted. Don’t waste precious time trying to do it the “right way.” “Just do it.” You can perfect it as you go along.
The urge to better your health is the opening of your souls’ window. It’s an invitation to dance intimately with your own compassionate, nurturing spirit.
When you turn down this invitation, or worse, accept the invitation, then fail to show. You hurt your spirit at a depth that requires much time to heal. It will be a long time before you receive that invitation again.
Each occurrence of this no show behavior reduces your spirits faith in your word. Try standing up your family physician a few times and observe the results.
Recognize your own importance. Make your health (thrive-ability) a priority for you. Close the gap between your head and your heart.
The next time you receive an invitation to dance with your inner Shaman. Kick off your shoes. Put your hair in a bun. Take a deep breath. And just do it!
