blaming

The debate about what's healthy

If you ask ten people what they think is healthy you will probably get ten different answers. It's a highly subjective thing. Or it's a media thing. Or it's a current research thing. Or it's a trend thing. Whatever, it varies. 

To me, health is love. It's common sense and it's individual. 

Hating the way your body look and therefor dragging yourself to the gym to do something you don't enjoy is not loving, therefore not healthy. 

Blaming your body for its flaws and punishing it with shutting off its signals (your symptoms) with suppressants is not loving, therefore not healthy. 

Loving you and loving the tool you got to express yourself here (your body) is the way to a healthy life. 

Listen for the signs. Ask for the guidance. And love what is. No matter what is. Because the opposite will never take you to wherever you want to go. You can't force yourself to true holistic health, but you can definitely flow there, with love. 

With all my love,

What about you?

It's easy to get lost in other people's wrong-doing, but it's a tricky place to go because we can't really do anything about it. Sure, we can give the other person some feedback and we can ask for a change, but we can't make the change happen if the other person don't want to change. 

A much more empowering choice is to look back at ourselves, where we have all the power. If you're annoyed at someone being pushy in the subway, how are you acting in the subway? If you dislike how someone else is treating you when they're stressed, how are you acting when you're stressed? If you are looking for a person to brighten your day, how are you brightening someone else's day? 

To take responsibility for what we can actually change is not about blaming ourselves or validating another's every behavior, it's about empowering where we can. Be the person you want to see in the world. Put all your energy into being the best person you can be and you'll soon see the world change around you. 

With all my love,
