As you all know I haven’t been doing a whole lot of blogging lately. Mostly because, as I said a few weeks ago, I am a little tired of “hearing” myself and I want to do more learning and more listening before I start spouting again! Meditation each morning with Mitch and Ms. Roxburry has been a great way to begin each day. Guided meditation helps set an intention and today that intention was completely in line with my speaking less and listening more…
The other reason I have been “quiet,” is because I find I am conflicted about certain aspects of my life and my business and I need to sort it all out. It’s always better to think things out before we speak.
As for it being Vegan (Feast) Thursday, all I can say is that the world is so mixed up and upside down, I just wish we could all exercise a little more compassion and I know from personal experience that since I stopped eating animal products, I feel much more connected to the entire universe. Always the ultimate dog lover, I see ALL animals in a much lighter, light and after all, we are ALL animals!
But today I am totally stepping away from blogging about a plant-based diet in order to share an image that has me totally conflicted on so many levels….both personal and professional. This was shared by Alexis Wolfer of thebeautybean.com.
Photo credit goes to Meg Gaiger of Harpyimages. It was shared a couple of days ago and has left me doing a lot of thinking…We have all got to stop obsessing about the number on the scale (definitely myself included) and the images (ALL digitally manipulated) we see of models, actresses and celebs. This doesn’t mean we let ourselves go and stop caring. It means we do the work of being physical and eating healthfully and nurturing our souls. But it’s confusing. What’s healthy to you, might not at all be healthy to me. So we have to do our homework and be honest with ourselves.
So, if my students, clients and friends find me changing the subject about the pound or two you gained or lost, I am not at all not interested, I am just working on being a better role model. We know it’s not our job to ask others to do or be more or different than they are. It’s our job to work on ourselves and be the best ME we can.
I am asking for random feedback today. I will have to approve your comments before they will appear and I am off to do my CPR renewal in a bit, but I will be back later. Please, I want to hear from you and feel free to share with others.
Health and fitness is my business and my passion, but when there are lines that blur with regard to weight and I need to sort through all of this to be better at what it is I love. Children are also a great passion of mine and I want us all to be sending out the healthiest messages we can to them.
And now I will return to the listening. Thank you!
