Life is fleeting

I am constantly recommitting myself to taking better care of myself.  I’ve been doing this now for years. And as simple as it seems it should be, it’s a struggle.  Some days are better than others and it is getting easier each day. This morning was especially challenging because I did not have much of an appetite, but I know what happens when I skip or miss a meal.  It throws me off just a little. I want to be healthy and live as long a life as possible.  As I’m typing the thoughts streaming from my head, I can’t help but feel a little silly that I have somewhat of an issue (…and I am aware “issue” IS an overly used word!) with food.  I know food is important, I know it keeps us alive, I know it can heal, therefore it should be well considered.  But I want to get to a place where I just prepare my food and get on with it!  I think that will come with making a habit of good food choices on a daily basis.  It will soon be second-hand.   That is the goal.  With the recent passing of Whitney Houston, I am especially recommitted today to sticking with choices that promote my health.  She died too soon. She was sick and the grip addiction had on her was just too tight.  It choked the life out of her.  I can’t even begin to imagine how dark and desperate a place that must have been.  Her death just reminds me that life is fleeting.  Things can not wait until tomorrow.  Life really is uncertain, so with that knowledge I am choosing to do everything in my power to live it better than I have before.  That is my goal for today and everyday moving forward.  Thanks for listening!

    I congratulate you little sis.

    I know you will think more clearly and see with precision as transform in your resolve.

    I found that ALWAYS considering where your food has been BEFORE the marketplace has been compelling in DEEPENING my awareness. It’s already in our minds – once it enters our heart and soul, it will be so much easier.

    I’m with you.
