I like exercise for several reasons: for health, to relieve anxiety, sleep better, regulate metabolism, self care, etc. And while I am trying to incorporate it into my daily activity right now it’s not proved all that easy. But……I’m remembering why I am doing this. While yes, I’d love to lose 25 pounds the main thing I’m working on right now is my inner well being and physical exercise is only a tiny part of that huge endeavor.
So, I’m not going to slack off. I still want to have 3-4 days a week under my belt until I can more easily incorporate it into a daily regiment.
All these little things I have been doing for myself: my hair, self-care, exercise, on and on is making me feel better. I was thinking last night how I’m becoming more self-centered at this stage of my life. While that wouldn’t be good advise for everyone, it’s exactly what I need to be doing for my life right now, for the evolution of my soul.
For some people the opposite advice probably holds true. There are no absolutes in life. Not everything suits everyone, no matter what it is.
But my goal is to work on me from the inside out, because the opposite is the recipe for a superficial disaster and that’s just not where I want to be in life.
This goal, no matter how difficult, is going to help me tremendously the rest of this life here. I’m selfishly doing this for myself so that my children learn as well that self care is necessary and if done right will benefit everyone and everything.
Being well from the inside out, in the deepest recesses of one’s being, takes a great amount of honesty with oneself and introspection. I can guarantee that if you don’t find something you don’t like in there, you haven’t gone deep enough because we all have baggage and issues and things we need to resolve and improve. Such is the reality of this life.
