Heart (it) RacesPosted: July 31, 2013
If you’re reading this … Congratulations, you’re alive. If that’s not something to smile about, then I don’t know what is-
Magazines, movies, television shows and just about every romance novel teach us to follow our deepest attractions if we want to find true love in our lives. As you may have discovered by now, reading Shape magazine to get fit works about as well as an off the strip gambling parlor. We all share many types of attractions, and every attraction beckons us into an entirely different direction and future.
The direct path to exploring a healthy life lies in only following what I believe are our “activities of inspiration.” These attractions draw us to “things” that are gentle and available; Nature is my best example as well as people who inspire us simply by who they are. Engaging in activities that diminish our sense of self rarely change, even with love, commitment and lots of sweat and hard work. We don’t need the roller coaster of negative attractions to grow! We can grow through inspiration instead.
The decision to only follow our “activities of inspiration,” is a life changer. The whole tenor of how you look at yourself, fitness and health changes. Even if you haven’t found the one activity you enjoy the most, you feel a sense of wholeness; a sense that you’re moving closer to finding what you truly love.
I encourage you to make a commitment to yourself, in this present moment, in your jammies … Be bold, different and choose only attractions of inspiration. Each one of us has the power to change our life and our future with kindness and a commitment to ourselves.
