wake up calls from our bodies - original post June 2009
Friday, January 13, 2012
i had reposted this is January 2012 and here it is August 2014 and i STILL have same issues! yet again though, i have not GIVEN UP and i am ONCE AGAIN starting again of putting myself first & taking care of me!!!
i'm ready to continue my journey of taking care of me and loving everyday i have to share with myself and my family!
This is a post that i did in june 2009, unfortunately for me i had another episode of this same type in May 2011, it required me to be hospitalized just like in May 2009..... My body is telling me what i need to do and i've not been listening hard enough!! It's too easy to push aside our own needs to take care of everyone else and everything else.
I know if I don't take care of myself my health will deteriorate unless i make the conscious choice to "take care of myself and live a healthy lifestyle".
It's strange how we will always drop everything to take care of everyone else yet put ourselves on hold. and not think twice about it.
Post from June 2009 _---" even when we know what we are supposed to be doing we don't always do what's right for us. that's when our bodies decide it's time to get our "attention" and mine sure did two weeks ago. (May 2009)
i'm currently on blood pressure medicine which has helped tremendously and i have lost 7 lbs in those two weeks but i've also awaken to the fact that my body said "HEY LISTEN TO ME!!!" it got my attention and i've again restarted on the right path towards a healthy and fit me, that includes physically, mentally and spiritually - all of which have sent me signals recently that i have pushed aside because i was "too busy" or "didn't have the time" - well when your body says "we've had enough" it gets your attention.
