Dear Health, Let’s be GREAT today! #NHBPM Day 8

Dear Health,

The World Health Organization defines you as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”  In other words, you are the epitome of balance and wellness.  As you live and thrive in me, you make me whole.  Since I am in control of my environment (for the most part) and how I treat my body, mind, and spirit, I honor your presence and influence in my life.

The most important thing in my life is love, yet I cannot love if I don’t have you.

My goal is to help others find their balance and experience joy, yet I cannot achieve that goal if I do not have you.

I wish to nurture my family and live a long life full of energy and excitement, yet I cannot do these things without you.

I know it’s difficult.  I don’t make things easy.  However I think I am in control of my environment and how I treat myself, I am at times careless and even reckless with you.  I am aware that there is some disease and infirmity that inhibits your ability to be at your absolute best.  Yet, I do very little to make changes in the affected areas and I do not always take full advantage of the resources available to me.  In fact, I have been doing the least possible in those areas.  For that, I am deeply sorry.

I want to be real with you.  I know you appreciate that!  I am doing my best here.  I won’t make any promises.  I won’t give you false hopes.  But I will say, I will never give up hope.  I will never give up trying.  I will never give up on you.

I need you, Health.  I want to see us working and fighting together to achieve not just balance, but greatness.  We won’t just be well, we will be outstanding! 

Hugs!

I am Great

I was standing in a waiting room of a doctor’s office with my parents and my three little boys.  My mom was seeing the doctor.  My dad and I were entertaining the kids.  It had been about an hour when my mom finally came out.  As we stood at the counter waiting to make another appointment, I saw this posted to the wall in the receptionist’s workspace.  It was an 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper that read, “I Am Great” and I read it out loud to my kids and my father.  When the clerk came to her desk I said, “I love that. I really needed to read that today!”  She said she wrote it when her kids were small.  Then she did a remarkable thing.  She took it off the wall and gave it to me.  Thank you Ms. Elizabeth!  Where ever you are!
