I love this picture! It captures the essence of freedom, joy, energy, abandon, playfulness. As children, we have this in us… just watch a bunch of four year olds on the playground!
And yet somehow, as we enter adulthood, these lovely traits begin to fade. Whether we get weighed down with responsibility, bad experiences, disappointments, or the daily grind of living, it not only affects our demeanor, but our health as well.
What does YOUR evolution look like? Our lives are fluid, not static … which means your life is not “stuck” in one place. We change, evolve, grow, and move in life, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. You are who you are today due to a myriad of choices along the way of life. If you’re in a place of poor health, it didn’t happen overnight. It was a progression of many choices. If you’re in a place of good health, it didn’t happen overnight either! It was a series of good choices, sometimes sacrifice, and hard work.
The good news? “It ain’t over till it’s over!” Because life IS fluid and evolving, your life is in motion until your last breath. Don’t let discouragement or the past dictate your future. What was is done. What’s tomorrow is yet to be… And our health evolution isn’t always a straight path. Sometimes it’s three steps forward and one back, and eight forward and four back…but the goal is to be further ahead than where we were. If you fell today, get back up and start anew! And if you’re doing well, keep moving forward in it. LIFE IS NOT STATIC.
How is YOUR life evolving?
