Life Is Short, Live It Well!

  I couldn't help it! When she made the following statement on FB, I just had to respond,
"Good nutrition can heal any illness and keep you from getting sick." And just like that, I was unfriended!

Wellness In Every Aspect

  This morning, I was blessed to be able to enjoy a brunch with the ladies at our church and to hear from our special speaker, Melanie Sasek. Her topic was Building Faith in God's Purposes, and she spoke on the inevitability of change, and how God uses it in our lives. It's funny how God can use a stranger to speak to me about things I didn't even know I needed to hear or be reminded of, and to get my focus back to where it should be.

We Grow Best Outside Our Comfort Zone

 I love how this flower decided to plant itself on our patio outside the comfort of  the planter! I have no idea why these plants choose to grow in a narrow crack between patio blocks, but in my experience with Yarrow, the tougher the conditions the better they grow. They don't need a lot of water or even good soil to thrive, they just put down their roots, look up to the sun and bloom! Maybe we should take a lesson from them!

5 Steps To Living Well

 The idea that there is a one size fits all program out there just sets people up to fail. And if you've done any reading on wellness at all you already know that for every article touting the perfect method, there's another one saying the exact opposite! So please don't look at what I've done and assume that I believe it's THE way! Everyone is different, and it's important to keep that in mind. I can only share what is working for me and my specific health needs. My goal is to encourage you to find what works for you, and if you need some help and encouragement along the way, I'm happy to do what I can!
