I guess I have been on the path of practicing health for most my adult life. It all started in Germany early 2000's, I was living with a man out in a teeny tiny dorf called Pessenbach. Some girlfriends of mine where backpacking through so we hooked up to share some laughs. One of the girls had found a very well read book by Shakti Gawain, Living in The Light. Reading this book opened doors in my mind that I had been seeking without even knowing. It was the beginning of my spiritual/lifepath practice.
For years after I consumed alternative health care. I studied holistic body work modalities. I took up Yoga, meditation, energetic healing, atonement with nature... always seeking.
But Life is a pendulum swing and its been a journey and a challenge. When I'm practicing living well, I'm eating well, exercising/stretching, mindful, gracious, spending time in nature, flowing with life, and feeling in balance. Then, you know how it goes, I fall off and party too much. Spend too much time shopping or drinking wine with friends, or feed my kid crap food (that I said I never would) cause i'm "too busy" to cook a nutritious meal, then feel guilty about not doing enough business or making enough money.
the vicious cycle that most women feel today i'm sure.
I want to live happily, make exercise a priority, be organized with healthy meals to sustain my family, and love my body (no matter how it looks right now). My practice is to do these things. To Live will.
So I get back to my zone. Sit alone. Breathe my desires. I write them down.
