Healthy, Confident and Strong


Liberty V JusticeIt’s time to pull out the big guns. I’m gonna be brutally honest, and I know a lot of people won’t appreciate this, but I DO care, which is why I’m telling y’all this.

Everyone’s focus on looks and weight is frustrating me to the point of toxic anger.

Why can’t we focus on the most important things? A lot of people say “It’s what’s on the inside that counts” but then all they seem to focus on is “I wanna lose weight” or they call someone “fat” or they say “I love your eye shadow” or “I love your outfit.” Or a man notices a woman only when she puts on a dress and hasn’t worn one the whole time she’s been around him.

When you lose your health, that’s when you’ll start to appreciate it. When you have cancer, you stop focusing on looks and start focusing on how you feel emotionally and physically — if you want to get better, that is. You realize the most important things in life — ironically — when you’re on the brink of death.

 If you take care of your body, it will take care of you.

This “Globesity” (global epidemic of obesity) is something we need to take seriously in terms of health. Physically and emotionally there’s no way to be healthy without taking good care of your body. That means putting good gas (food) and oil (water) in it. It means driving it every day, as much as you can with periods of rest.  It means putting your car in the garage at night (sleeping normal hours). Your brain needs sleep to take care of your body.  Sleep is restorative. Just like your car’s engine needs to cool down overnight, so does your brain.
