Touching on a point from last week, in which I indicated that wellness is more than just feeding our physical bodies, we must also feed our mind, body and spirit……This week I’ll touch on one of those points!
- Do I make conscious and responsible choices?
There’s one thing I’ve learned a long time ago, and that is you can’t please everyone. In addition to that, it wasn’t my job to please everyone! We have to do what’s right for us, even when others don’t think it’s the right CHOICE. And they will because people always think you’re making the wrong decisions when you choose to be SELFISH. But only you know your reasons for the decisions you’ve made, and if it doesn’t work the way planned, at least you tried! Living your life to please others is only going to lead to stress, regret, and resentment. If you have a calling, if it’s something you’ve always wanted to do, don’t wait for the approval of others. It may never come.
Who knows better what’s in your best interest than you do? Don’t let the fears and limiting beliefs of others stop you from living the life you want, the life that you’ve always dreamed of. A sure way to retain mental wellness as well as spiritual wellness is to NOT live your life to the expectation of OTHERS.
Remember…….. Wellness is a destination, it’s an ongoing quest to achieve what is best for us.
