We ALL Struggle
I love this image but I am always hesitant to use it because it seems insensitive to people that struggle, but the truth is we ALL struggle! I am both of those people, even though I am thin on the outside at this point in my life, I struggle with desires to eat whatever I want, do whatever I feel like doing. I am full of excuses all the time and have to talk myself down because my mentality for SO long was that being thin was the goal. I bought into the lies of our culture. I thought I could eat and drink whatever I wanted as long as I looked a certain way, so I literally starved myself. I starved myself by not eating enough food and I starved myself by eating food that had NO nutritional value. I looked acceptable to the world and found my worth in that, but I was a ticking time bomb. If I had kept that up, I would have been perfect candidate for cancer, diabetes, or any other number of diseases because my body was too busy fighting off all the crap I was putting into it. The point is NOT pursue a perfect body, the point to pursue health and wellness and let your body heal itself. The point is to not pump your body full of sugar that feeds disease, chemicals that your body can't digest, and fill it full of nutrients that give it the power to do its job. When you do that, your body responds and the result is your body is its true form, it's best form. That is a byproduct of the good decisions, but the point is to BE healthy. I have known so many people that have walked through preventable disease and I will tell you, in the moment that they receive the news, they would do anything to go back and make better decisions! We can't keep up a life where the point is trying to look good all the time. That's not enough of a "why" to keep us going. Eventually, we will want the ice cream, french fries, ( name your junk food) more than we want to look good. When the point is your health and quality of life, that is much greater vision! So today, be the person you will wish you were! For tips support and encouragement follow me on Facebook! :) https://www.facebook.com/AubreyKReel?ref=hl
