Wellness Wednesday | I read a devotional today talking about our bodies being a temple. I've heard it many times, but it never clicked with me like it did today. God gave us our beautiful bodies or temples, how awesome is it that he created such an intricate and beautiful thing for each and everyone of us! Temples were highly respected places and were also so beautiful on the inside. So, why do we always crave those donuts and compare our bodies to others around us or that we see on social media(so hard for me not to as well, trust me, I love donuts😍🍩 and at first I found a million things to pick apart about myself in this picture). We need to start treating our bodies with respect and treating it like the beautiful gift God intended it to be. Moderation in all areas of life does a person good, so let's focus on all of the amazing yummy and healthy foods that we are able to eat, and then have a donut every once in awhile, but not making it a daily Tim Horton's run😊 too many people get too focused on the negatives and everything they can't have, when they have a bountiful selection of amazing things they CAN have or do! It's incredible how if we let our mind focus on the negative it will focus on the ONE negative out of the 2,000 blessings we have in our own lives.
Respect and love yourself | It's hard with social media to not pick apart your body, or how you are living your life. We are flooded with people's 'highs', which is awesome in one sense, and detrimental in another sense. I love being able to see people's exciting moments in life and to stay in touch with them, but sometimes I'll catch myself comparing my body to a fellow personal trainer or being envious of hikes or trips that other people are doing, and not remembering all of the beautiful people, hikes, and things going on in my own life. So let's really stop the comparing game and focus on loving ourselves and our lives, and I don't mean loving yourself in a vain way, but just be confident in who God made you to be and the purpose you are meant to fulfill. It's amazing how our outlook on life will change.
