Welcome! This is my first official post and I want to share why I started this blog with you. For those that do not know me, I have been a Registered Dietitian for about a decade now. Prior to going to school for nutrition, I studied psychology. I also have a love for human movement and have been a dancer for most of my life. I recently started training to be a yoga instructor through “Holy Yoga.”
I came to know Christ as a young teen and He had much to work on in me. Through the journey of healing and transformation He has carried me on, a passion developed in me to share and inspire. I use the word “journey” because it is not a destination I have reached, but a journey I am on. I am more healed and transformed than I was yesterday, but He is still working in me and through me.
For many years, I feel like I was out of balance. For example, I focused on giving my body healthy nutrition and movement, yet I neglected rest. I filled my schedule to the brim because I didn’t want to miss out on anything or let anyone down. The stress adversely affected my health and my outlook on life. I have learned the hard way to actually schedule rest and leave white space on my calendar. I have learned that saying “no” to certain things means saying “yes” to the most important things.
“Self care” is exactly how it sounds—taking care of yourself. The “whole” in “whole self care” refers to your whole self–your body, your mind, your emotions, and your spirit. Mark 12: 30 says to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” We are “whole” beings and each part of our being is important to Him as reflected in this verse. Each part of our being matters and is worth taking care of.
I felt compelled to start this blog not only to share my own journey, but to help you find what self care means for you. I want to help you find FREEDOM, find JOY, and feel GOOD in this body you were born with. Thank you for joining me on this journey. 🙂
