Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
So I am nearly to my 30 day mark. Will take pictures but no scale. I will be heading up to see my freind in Chicago early in the morning. Hoping it does not continue to rain as I really don't like driving in the rain.
Going to go see my Chiro before I leave to get an adjustment. It always makes my trip much better when I do this as it helps to release tension. He does a technique called biocranial that is amazing at reducing stress on the body.
So this morning, I woke up feeling so greatful for the amazing people God has placed in my life to help me on my healing journey. It brought tears to my eyes that God would answer my prayers after so many years of relentless ill health. Interestingly the answers have come from my church family.
When I think of my mentors, they are all good christian people willing to help me through my emotional pain as well as the physical pains. They saw my worth rather than how worthless I felt. They encouraged me through love and prayers. But have also been actively part of my life as friends. I do believe this is what Jesus did and I am so greatful to them for reaching out to me and offering help rather than judgement. We must remember to love people to Christ, critisizing them really does not help them. Edification is much more effective. It does not dampen the spirit like criticism does. I believe it is also important to realize that when a person is not only in physical pain but emotional pain as well, generally they are critsizing themselves a great deal and negative tapes have been in their head for many years. They only thing that can break that cycle is to learn new, positive tapes. It is not an easy transition, it is one that has to be worked on daily. We all struggle with negative thinking from time to time and we must strive to have good mental health by focusing on positive thoughts. Just like we exercise to have good physical health, we must exercise our mindas well.
May you all have a positively uplifting day! Keep it real and keep it high raw!:O)
