Happy Independence Day weekend friends!❤🇺🇸❤
Total health isn’t only about the physical body. The more I study and learn, the more I see the enormous unaddressed gaps in Western medicine. Mind, body, spirit, community, (and in my opinion, having full faith in Jesus ) are all necessary for a life that is full of peace, health, and joy filled.
I realized about halfway thru my pharmacy career (of 30 years) that pharmacy would bring a solid paycheck but would not bring me peace, health, or joy. The stress and the hours and the speed and accuracy with which you are pressured to work is grueling (there are very few healthy pharmacists out there). Even more importantly, I had come to realize that what truly brings health (mind, body, spirit alignment) would never come from a pill. The problem tho, was this, how do you leave that which doesn’t serve you…. whatever THAT is?
You find what DOES serve you….. what makes your heart sing….. what brings you joy and peace, and then you pursue it, even if it means only 10 minutes a day….. you make it happen. Baby steps. 👣 Gradually, you invest more time and effort because THIS (whatever your “THIS ” is for you) fuels your fire….. it might just become your blueprint for an exit strategy to leaving that which no longer serves you 😘.
This is what personal growth and development looks and feels like. A constant honing and awareness off correcting course. We only get one life to live, and it is honoring to God to live it fully using our gifts to help others and also to carry joy in our hearts always.
If you feel stuck somewhere in life, I encourage you to think on this. “Stuckness” will eventually affect your health in ways you’d never imagine 😔. If you’d like to chat a bit, find a mentor who radiates joy! I can pretty much guarantee they would be happy to talk to you and share their story. One of the reasons I love Young Living so much is because they serve a community of passionate people who have realized that freedom has many facets and they all involve, …..as the Declaration of Independence so beautifully states….. the God given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (tho I much prefer to say the acquisition of joy!❤🙏) .
Have a beautiful July 4th weekend! 🇺🇸
