|Getting Some Zen - my next needlework project|
I’ve been thinking about a can of worms I opened last week. It is true that we get more of what we focus on. And for quite some time now I have focused on depression and stress and the innate lack of understanding of the effect of these illnesses on our overall well being. I have rallied to have them recognised as disabilities. In so doing can it be that I have lost sight of the big picture? Can it be that I have done nothing but feed the beast?
I’ve been reading Lissa Rankin’s Mind Over Medicine and having my belief reinforced that ‘what and how we think has a powerful effect on our physical well being’, positive or negative. Then, today I happened upon Lisa Esile and her ‘7 Secrets Your Mind Does Not Want You toKnow.’ And it struck me that I’ve really been giving my mind too much space. And working my way through ‘Mind Over Medicine’ I have come to see the big picture and finally found the ‘a-ha’. It’s about everything working together – taking the whole person into account.
There is no compartmentalising, life is a whole package thing. And we have to look after the whole package. That’s why it’s so important we look after our mind, body and spirit. Each relies on the other and if one is out of sync they all are. And that is why I need to step up and live my life fully.
In living my life fully I am leading by example. What I have been doing up to now has served its purpose but now I know better and serendipity sent me this on my Pinterest front page.
|Because it's meant to be|
Hope you all have a complete week.
