I am overwhelmed with the comments left on my last post. The impact we can have on one another without ever having met amazes me. Blogging has proved this to me. I have been given support and found so much inspiration by reading the blogs of beautiful, healthy women. Women who have often fought the same battle and won. Women who may still struggle but can share their triumphs and challenges.
And so many have what I want.
Health. I am CRAVING it. I am hungry for it. I am ready for it.
I realize I have bottomed out– run myself into the ground by not nourishing myself spiritually, emotionally, intellectually or physically.
Then my mind went monkey-wild….negative and irrational thoughts, going willy-nilly whenever it chose. My ability to focus was non-existent.
Finally, my body gave in. I feel all kinds of wonky. I am exhausted and achy and sick.
I need to take care of myself. Sound body, sound mind.
A sound mind in a sound body is a short but full description of a happy state in this world. John Locke
I left work early yesterday feeling sick and called today, which I have spent mostly sleeping. Sleeping and formulating my plan.
I am on a mission. This weekend will be entirely committed to restoring myself back to … ME again.
RESTORE, REVIVE, REVITALIZE.
I’ll be “SERFING” everyday….making sure to get a balance of Spirituality, Exercise, Rest, and proper Food.
I’ll be doing what I WANT to do, rather than what I HAVE to do. If the floors don’t get mopped, so be it.
In short — I am going to chill the funk out and take it easy. Or try, at least.
Hopefully, by Monday I will feel REFRESHED, RENEWED, and RECHARGED.
Because I need my energy and strength for recovery.
