YOU CAN EAT THE KALE DRINK THE ALKALINE WATER TAKE THE SUPPLEMENTS DO YOGA BUT IF YOU DON’T DEAL WITH THE S*** GOING ON IN YOUR HEART AND HEAD YOU’RE STILL UNHEALTHY
So I recently saw this meme(above) and wanted to share my thoughts on it on how it effects LIFE- Not just the health and fitness aspect of it. As I do believe this holds true, I tell a lot of my clients, we can be great here in the gym, but once we step foot outside of it, if we haven’t found balance to support everything we do and go through, it can all go in vain.
I have heard plenty of times…”You can pack up your things move to a different state or even country to try and begin a fresh start BUT if you have not taken care of the problems/issues you’re dealing with, those same problems will follow you wherever you go.”
I do believe that. I have dealt with it as well.
ANY problem, whether its dealing with family, friends, a relationship, personal matters…if we cant forgive, let go and let God…the issues will always harbor on our hearts no matter what or where we go. In essence, it ends up effecting our health.
For me, going through the traumatic miscarriages I experienced…it effected me in a way not just emotionally but physically. Going to work was the only way I could get my mind off of having to go through what I did, but at the end of the day, when I would go to bed, or just had idle time to think, I would let those experiences consume me. I started feeling weak and helpless.
It wasn’t until I realized I was letting negative thoughts, and feeling bad for myself, be a barrier to my happiness or even trying to think positive. I CAN get pregnant, I CAN have a family, I CAN simply LIVE and love and be grateful for what I do have, because at the end of the day, the more I dragged myself down, the more I was dragging the people I loved down with me.
I accepted that it was ok to grieve but to not let it take me over. I accepted that although I will not forget, its ok to move on and move forward LIVE LIFE and be happy.
For anyone reading this going through something too, I hope that you can be able to do the same.
