As I read on my brow furrowed at the thought of just how unnecessary malnourishment truly is... in relationships, work, health... mind, body, soul. Everything. This lack of nourishment in life is preventable, yet still remains a chronic problem. Why is that? Is life just too hard to deal with such a seemingly simple task? Besides, who wants to wither like a dried out plant, anyway?
Such self-destructive behavior is puzzling and angering when we see it in others.
Yet, we all do it:
we work too much
we don't feel great, but ignore symptoms of illness, forget to schedule a doctor's appointment or figure we'll 'get around to it'
we stop kissing, hugging, holding hands or even having sex with our significant other
we really do forget to feed the plants
love becomes a word, not an action anymore
we order fast food instead of cooking
we take the people we love for granted
we don't wash the car, the house, the clothes
we sleep in instead of getting up for a morning workout
we (maybe) drink too much...
Then, one day, we stop... for whatever reason... and we take a good look around:
the house is a mess
the plants are dead
we're fat and weak
we are sad
We are starving.
This is the point where choice comes in. You could a) decide that you will nourish yourself back to a wonderful & fulfilling life one drop at a time or b) turn off the light, turn on the tv and forget you saw anything at all.
I believe in change. I believe in forgiveness of ourselves and of one another. I believe in recovery and most of all & with all my heart, I believe we were created to live a wonderful and fulfilling life.
Live a wonderful and fulfilling life...
