Homeostasis, #balance, #equilibrium, moderation, stability….these all are difficult to achieve and maintain in life….but they are especially hard to obtain now. ;) LOL @ #myself.

PURPOSE: EVOLUTION OF SELF - Writing 08/12/2014

I find that most living things belong to a particular group of souls, and they are born knowing their purpose in life. An animal will spend its day foraging for food, taking care of itself and its young, and creating a home. No one tells an animal to do this, yet it instinctively knows how. Humans, for the most part, are not born consciously knowing what their purpose is, right? Purpose is supposed to give my life meaning. When I discover my purpose, then I can live my life with intention and make choices that serve my greater objective for why I am here on the earth. Finding my purpose has not always been easy. I still find that I must embrace life wholeheartedly, explore many different pathways, and allow myself to continue to grow.

My purpose is as inimitable as I am, and it will evolve as I dance through life. I find that I don’t need anyone’s permission to fulfill my purpose, and ultimately, no one can tell me what my purpose is. Finding and fulfilling my purpose can be a lifelong endeavor. To figure out what my purpose is, I have had to myself what inspires me and drives me. I cannot focus on what causes me pain or causes me to feel stifled; I must concentrate on what makes me glad to be alive and allows me the chance to thrive. What activities do I wish to be involved in, or what path do I want to embark on professionally? I can then focus on pursuing my purpose with satisfaction.

I meditate and envision myself working on projects that fulfill my purpose, yet these also help to satisfy my basic survival needs. Devotion to what sparks my imagination, what inspires and excites me is so fulfilling. I cannot feel like I’m living a wasteful life when I live and thrive with purpose and truth and meaning.


Reducing Inflammation — The Natural Approach | Women to Women — Transforming women's health — naturally

"Over many years we have found that preventing or reversing inflammation is all about listening to your body. From that listening you can begin to learn first-hand what increases or reduces your body’s inflammatory response. You can cool your body’s inflammatory response and keep it healthier over time by taking one step at a time, at a pace that feels right for you. This is the approach we have found to be most effective and sustainable over the long term."
