Eat healthy; it is tooted from pillar to post, from north to south, east to west, high and low. We are bombarded with best practices and gym owners and personal trainers are making a mint on our zest to eat right and exercise. But what of our minds and the insidious little ways we undermine, sabotage and contaminated it?
It is not enough to be mindful of what you put in your mouth in order to secure your health and body you must also be mindfully diligent about what you allow to feed your mind, impact your spirit and penetrate your soul. Just as certain foods & excessive amounts of the wrong choices can be poisonous to your body and health; so to can malicious people if you are not discerning and protective of your psyche (emotional and psychological being). Some people are just plain toxic and are just as dangerous and as devastating to your health. They can quite literally make you sick.
Be courageous enough to listen to your instincts about what you see, what you experience and what you feel and do the necessary cauterizing just as you would eliminate foods that are not good for you. If not, you are wilfully contaminating your being in preference of being liked, accepted all to the detriment of you.
Don’t be a participant in your own hurt, embarrassment, humiliation, shame and destruction, be accountable for you. It is not up to others to accept you; it is up to you to accept you.
True acceptance starts within and if you having a hard time with that, you got work to do. Get to working on you. You are worth the sacrifice required to experience true happiness, acceptance and love.
ASK YOURSELF THIS:
What good is a “great” body if your mind and spirit is a putrid sewer of toxic stew?
By all means be healthy, just nurture your mind, spirit and body simultaneously; there should never be a choice.
Be the love that you need and don't be afraid to make the tough choices by eliminating that which is poisonous to your being.
