Thursday Thoughts – Health Issues Don’t Discriminate

Did you know that health issues don’t discriminate?

Like most other girls in the 30-40 year old range, I too thought Dylan was dreamy! I’m sad Luke lost his life at age 52…

But I see a lot of people commenting on his age and how he’s ‘too young’ to have died from a stroke/complications from a stroke, and while I understand the sentiment, again, health issues DO NOT discriminate.

They affect young and old, black and white, gay and straight, all religions, all political backgrounds, from all parts of the world, all professions, all income brackets… so on and so forth.

Health issues simply don’t discriminate.

And sometimes there is truly no rhyme or reason as to why we suffer health issues.

I know people who don’t really move their bodies, don’t really eat anything of nutritious value, fill their bodies with substances and alcohol, and yet have the paperwork to prove they are “healthy” across the board.

Similarly, I know people who do the majority of things right, and still can’t get into a health groove.

But all this is just one of many reasons why I work out. Why I try to make the majority of the food I eat nourishing and nutritious. Why I get acupuncture to help me heal and deal with stress. Why I drink water like tomorrow it could be outlawed.

Why I do EVERYTHING I do, and WHY I invite others to JOIN ME in making small changes that could make a BIG difference in their life.

It doesn’t mean we won’t face health issues, unfortunately. I mean, if only there was a guarantee, I’m pretty sure that’d propel a LOT of people into action, am I right?!

But there is something to be said for taking PROACTIVE measures. There is something to be said for LOVING yourself enough to want better for yourself. To care enough NOW.

How many of us would get our asses in gear NOW if we had a crystal ball that would predict health issues in our FUTURE?

In a perfect world, doing the majority of things right would set you up for a long life with no health issues or complications. But the world isn’t perfect and neither are we.

But every bit helps, so let us not strive for PERFECTION but rather, strive to empower ourselves to be BETTER than we were yesterday; to shine BRIGHTER than we ever have.

And if you need help and support in doing that? I got you. Truly, we are all in this together 💕

Soul Care Sunday – Ladies Day at the Winery

Thank you to the wonderful souls who kept us company today – my own soul needed that kind of judgment-free, welcomed distraction, and I’m reminded once again that no matter how tough life gets, there are always people who care and are there and will be a source of love and laughter.

It’s always humbling to look at how many awesome people we have in our corner and to remind ourselves how blessed we are! We appreciate all of you!

💕 the best wines are the ones we drink with friends (loved this Kari!) 💕
