Hi friends! Good news!
I feel more like myself than I have the past few weeks. Getting back in alignment and getting over being sick does wonders for appreciating health! It’s no surprise how different elements of our health impact each other (mental, physical, spiritual, emotional) when one is out of balance!
This week, I hit the ground running (not literally, mind you) getting back into the gym and back into phase 2 of LiveFit. There is something to be said about a nice 2 1/2 week hiatus, because I definitely felt energized and ready to work hard. I definitely believe in the importance of rest weeks or days to give your body a chance to heal and rest.
Except, maybe the fact that the resuming week, everything gets sore very quickly. Whoops.
As I was doing yard work this evening, (oh it never ends!!) I found my mind wandering the way it usually does when there’s too much silence. I started thinking a lot about karma.
I actually think karma is kind of a hokie, hippie word. It has a lot to do with your attitude:
It just boils down to being a nice and maybe letting go of things from time to time. After all, we only have so many hours in each day, week, lifetime. We can spend them doing and thinking positive things or doing and thinking negative things.
There’s also something to be said about how we deal with negative life experiences. People aren’t perfect, despite our best expectations. They hurt our feelings, snub us, make us mad, betray us, lie to us, disappoint us and leave us feeling defensive and maybe even insecure about ourselves.
How do we deal with these experiences?
Just think what this world would be like if we all were a little kinder. If we smiled just a little more at each other. If we gave each other compliments instead of criticism.
If we took things a little less personally, got a little less offended and took a second to consider that everyone has much more on their plate than it may seem.
I can’t control how others act, but I do have control over how I act.
Do I want to be known as a positive person or a negative one?
I know this post is a little sentimental, but it’s what’s been on my mind.
Now, who’s with me?
p.s. None of these images are mine. I got them all from pinterest. Now you know.
