Snapshots of Wellness wants to wish you & yours the healthiest & most joy filled holidays ahead!
For the remainder of 2015, I will be focused on my real life adventure off of the blog. There is a possibility I will blog once or twice via the 'Daily' as well as adding articles to other 'tab's above but, because I cannot promise that, I wanted to wish you all a sparkly winter season ahead!
I personally learn the most 'in the trenches'. I have always been this 'tactile' person who likes to touch, feel & experience all of life! In other words, I don't want to read about organic recipes from sustainable gardens - I want my hands underneath the soil, pulling up veggies. I enjoy the cooking and crafting of recipes. I want to meet you in person - wrap my arms around your shoulders - meet you for coffee vs. read about you in an article. This need for tactile experiences extends to all areas of my life. I have very literally gained my health/wellness education by actually living it out through my personal journey. And then I of course, write about it after the fact.
This year on Snapshots of Wellness, I shared absolutely every single thing that I learned about wellness from the experts that I have interacted with (across the entire country). And my hope & prayer is that you feel better educated on wellness by reading Snapshots of Wellness. If I was able to help you on your health & wellness journey then, my heart feels thrilled!
I'd like my 2015 closing written words for SW to be this:
Life is genuinely spectacular, joy filled & so deeply meaningful that it takes your breath away. And this 'life' that I am referring to exists right in your heart. It's 'IN' you. It's a grace filled gift from God. So, no matter what season you are in right now - living in abundance & healthy - stressed & fear filled or experiencing trials & pain - just reach toward God to find the 'sweet' in your day to day. Reach for God to find the 'love' in this season of your life. There is always a duality to love that plays out in every single experience of all of our lives. What I mean is, when you choose to love fully, you will experience pain as well because love is a beautiful messy experience. And yet if you choose love, life pretty much becomes magical (even in the hardest times). Allow God to love you & your heart until your heart is so tender that it could melt (0: Let Him take you exactly where He wants to take you. Say 'Here I am, send me' (Isaiah 6:8). Go on the journey of a lifetime. Abandon 'safety' for Him. Let Him change you - grow you - transform you entirely until you are unrecognizable.
Thank you all for such a wonderful blogging experience in 2015! I am deeply grateful because this was a shared experience for all of us collectively on SW. Love to you all.
What is the point of all of this, if you are not going to let it change you? Francis Chan
