May God’s grace, love and mercy continue to cover you through this journey we call life. As I reflect on how wonderful God is in our lives I give praise. Things we often take for granted in our youth we have greater appreciation for as we mature. Many of us struggled and even failed the work/family balance, and countless of us remain in that struggle today. Yet not too many of us even recognize the importance of physical/mental balance. As many others I was a latchkey kid also. However probably because of the work my mom was in as an owner of her own beauty salon she instilled in me the importance of NOT wearing cheap/inexpensive shoes. She always reminded me that my feet had to carry my entire body all of my life, therefore only the best made shoes should only be worn at all times. I also know that our entire body is as equally important. I ran across a few encouraging quotes regarding the importance of our health. I embrace each one whole heartedly, and hope they will encourage you as well, especially when high performance is always expected, especially here in America.
Various quotes of unknown authors:
“Our bodies are the containers of our soul, and it is important to honor them by taking care of them and giving ourselves love”
“The first wealth is Health!”
Good health is not something we can buy. However it can be an extremely valuable savings account”
And finally, “To keep your body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not keep our mind strong and clear!”
#Self Love! #Physical and Mental Health!
