In the past couple of weeks I’ve realized how grateful I am to myself, for all my healthy efforts and to my body for responding to my efforts so that I feel better and actually am better. I often focus on how far I’ve yet to go…. and don’t give myself enough credit for the progress I’ve made. So Thank You Body!
We never know when or if injury or illness will strike. What a blessing and gift to ourselves to be able to face that day if/when it comes from a place of better health. Each “deposit” I make into my health puts me in a better position to heal when I need to.
I’m usually all about “feeling better”, because that ‘s what I notice. Do I feel good? Do I have the energy, ability, mobility… to do what I want to without pain, strain or excessive tiredness? Now that is has been a couple of years down this (I’ve got to end the pain and feel better) path… I do feel better, much better in all ways. Physically I have less, tiredness abdominal pain, headaches, illness… I also have more energy, a brighter outlook and a calmer more focused spirit (most days not all days 😉 progress is good!) It is easier to do what I need to do with energy left for what I want to do. I realize that I not only feel better (which is great!) I am better! What’s not to like about that!
Are you feeling better? perhaps not all the time.. but some of the time? Can you do a little more than you did before? Celebrate your progress!! Give yourself credit for all you are doing to gently move yourself closer to health. It is important. Improving our health is as important as anything else very likely more important. Because it affects all aspects of our lives.
What small simple thing will you do for yourself today to feel better and ultimately be a healthier you? Today I will rest more. I’ve been feeling under the weather this past week, so I will let myself rest and regroup. Feeling poorly has really helped me see how much progress I’ve made. I used to feel like this (and worse) every day… I’m so glad it is unsual now. Thank You Body and Thank You Self for doing what needs to be done to feel better.
Let me know how I can help. I’m glad to help you discover your path to feeling better/being healthier. I have had help along my way, let me help you along yours.

Why on earth a blog you ask?
Another way we can keep in touch. I want to encourage you to take small simple steps on your path to feel better and to help you figure out what those steps are. There is space here to elaborate, go a bit deeper and touch on things that we may not have talked about in person yet.
