I think it is fair to admit that my entire life passion and most of my personal interests fall somewhere on the spectrum of Wellness; finding it, keeping it, and sharing it-
Wellness is a whole lot more than diets that keep us in our jeans or fitness that keeps us looking muscular-
Wellness is whole lot more than self-confidence and positive thinking-
Wellness points to, what I consider, the THREE pillars that define our mortal journey. I believe that we truly only have three things to do in this life- everything that we spend our time, money, energy, and attention on should point, in some way, to one (or all) of these:
- Face and overcome obstacles as they come- large and small
- Live a life of compassion and kindness
- Feel, and share, Joy in our Journey
I had written about changing our perspective on eating and feeding my family a few weeks ago. Just in the short time since that post, so much has already changed in relation to my families nutritional needs. For the sake of better emotional and physical health in our home, we have had to eliminate so much more than we ever have before. However, the concept of gratitude for what we can eat and the abundance that allows us to enjoy diversity in our food despite a long list of restrictions has stayed the same.
