Hi everyone! It's been months! Happy New Year to all of you!!
I almost have no idea where to begin because....oh, the vastness of it all.
The cornerstone of 'Snapshots of Wellness' has been to very literally capture 'Snapshots' - a view through my lens - of wellness. And 'Wellness', by definition, evolves. Wellness 'expands' along with our level of commitment to being educated & involved in our own health journey as well as the well being of others.
Creatively, I started this blog sharing the importance of eating organic leafy greens, movement/fitness & how to incorporate more nature into your life. I then branched into holistic health and the enormous arsenal of 'aids' to heal the body (Essential Oils, Herbs, Supplements, etc.). And then, SW expanded yet again into how each of us can give back to those in need - how each of us can best serve others & be a voice for the voiceless. The year after this, all of you started to read more and more about my faith in God and who Jesus is. And then finally came the radical concept of living in 'community'.
Do you recognize that evolution? It's all related to 'wellness'. It's peeling back layers & layers of 'healthy living' that all lead to a deeper and deeper 'purpose'.
For me, that purpose is continually answering the following question in every single circumstance 'Will this decision glorify God or will it not"? For you, that purpose can be entirely different.
Where am I taking SW next? We are going to do our deepest dive to date into how we can participate in making this fragile earth a place for all of us to flourish!! This year will be all about taking utter leaps of faith - massive risk taking - into transforming the lives of others & thus, allowing God to change our own in the process. And this change starts with 'each of our hearts'.
We will kick off being back with a fab GIVEAWAY! I will be giving away a copy of Brendan Brazier's new book, Thrive Fitness (2nd edition). It's fantastic! I'll chat with all of you more about the book next week & then it's gifting time! If you want that copy, tune into SW on Monday the 22rd!
God Bless, glad to be back with all of you & find the joy this week!
