I ran across two quotes today that have truly resonated with me. I wasn’t going to write or post anything today. I try not to blog “just to blog” and do not write unless there’s something to share. Today I do not have anything earth shattering or a new workout or recipe to share. I feel a little “stuck” today. It’s rainy. I’m tired from a long weekend. I am unmotivated. The Husband found me reclining on my bed reading. He told me I was doing the Reverse Workout. He was absolutely correct. I’ve been thinking about the following quote:
life is a balance of holding on and letting go.
Lately, in my life, I have done a lot of letting go. Not easily or happily. It has been a slow, painful process that began about two years ago. Life can change in an instant. Change can be very difficult and sometimes the difficulty comes from knowing how things will never go back to the place where they were normal and comfortable. I keep trying desperately to hold on to some things. I can’t and don’t want to let go. I am sure there is a balance somewhere but I have not found it. It seems pretty unobtainable at times. Perhaps there’s a secret. If so, I’d really appreciate someone sharing . . .
The next quote is this:
It is easier to STAY well than to GET well
If you have ever known someone who is unwell and watched them fight to get well again, you know how true this statement is. Whether illness from heart disease, high blood pressure, poor habits, obesity, diabetes, tobacco use, or any other cause, getting back to a stable, healthy condition can really be a challenge. If we stay healthy by doing the things that we can to control this part of our life, our lives will be so much easier! I think life is difficult enough – why make it even more so by allowing bad choices to wreak havoc on our bodies? Staying well is so much easier.
