Alright, so I might as well get something up here to get this journal off the ground. I have a tendency to procrastinate so starting is key.
My journey started while I was on vacation with my family. I ran into a nasty stomach bug and I ended up in the hospital. Once that was fixed, everything was okay for a while, but then something happened. I started getting sick. I couldn't go outside because I was so afraid of what my body would do.
It hasn't been an easy journey. But it has helped me realize some deeper concepts of life, such as what truly matters, following my heart and living life on purpose. It has also helped me realize how important health is. Without health you can't do anything. You can have all the money in the world, but if you're not healthy, well and happy, nothing matters.
This doesn't mean you neglect any of the other aspects of your life, but it just shows that life is meant to be lived holistically. Every piece needs to be in place. But at the same time, nothing has to be perfect. You have to discover how you can be healthy, and how you can live a healthy, balanced life.
No one can tell you how to do this. You can listen to tips from others, but you have to take responsibility of what works for you, and what doesn't.
You have to make sure you're eating and living healthy. Eat the right foods, meditate, and do whatever works for you. There are so many ways to live a healthy life that you don't have to listen to any one person.
Everyone shares their truth, or at least most people. Listen to the people who resonate with you and no one else. For example, I recently found http://www.happyhealthyrelaxed.com/
, which I really resonate with.
I also enjoy browsing wikipedia and checking out what they say about healthy living. If you're interested, you can start here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthy_diet
It may at first seem confusing. You don't know how to live a healthy life, or how to deal with your health problems and issues, but it all starts with one step. Just read one thing and let it consolidate in your brain.
Overwhelm happens because you try to learn too much too fast, so let it take time, and be okay with being who you are. You don't have to change yourself, and you don't have to become someone else. You are good as you are. Can you accept that?
I think I'll end things there. This journal entry is starting to become quite long. You can see I'm passionate about this stuff, especially natural health, and even vitamins and stuff. It's a passion of mine, because it does make a difference. At least it has made a difference in my life.
