I read a quote in Jillian Michael’s book Unlimited that has me thinking….
I wonder how you are doing at finding your healthy and happy space? I have found this to be quite a journey and I would agree that on most days, I feel positioned quite well to give back….
I find as I am healthier, I am also thinking about where I can volunteer my time, a thought that hasn’t always been in the front of my mind. When I find myself thinking about protecting myself and my time, it is often when I am not doing as well in my nutritional eating and exercise. When I am off track, I find myself building barriers…when I am on track, I am much more open to consider my influence and to be influenced by the people and opportunities which surround me.
As you begin to plan your fall months, I invite you to consider where you might make a difference and offer back. It may be as simple as visiting an elderly member of your community once a week or inviting someone to enjoy a meal and your company on a regular basis. Be creative and have fun. Also consider what would need to change to ensure you are moving towards greater health, wellness and generosity of your spirit!
