Wishcasting Wednesday is here once again and Jamie Ridler (of Jamie Ridler Studios
) has another probing question to ask:
How do you wish to nourish your self?
I had hoped that once summer began I would begin a routine that would truly help to improve my health. I know what I should do - eat healthy, exercise, drink water. It is in the practice that I falter. I need to take better care of myself.
Jamie's question is a gentle nudge - but by posing the question differently, it has me realize that I really haven't been nourishing myself. Trying to firm up my willpower and getting upset when I don't follow through, is another spiral down.
Nourishing my soul, nourishing my body are very different goals than trying to be healthy! I say an add that said "Nourish to flourish" - what a great description!
I want to nourish my body by putting in it healthy foods and water, by dancing, by swimming, by walking and by treating it with respect.
I want to nourish my soul by being creative, by meditating, praying and reading.
To nourish is to give life to and I so want to give life to me! Lately I have been caught up in thinking negative thoughts and focusing on pain. I want to turn from that negativity, once and for all, and look to the positive.
As Jamie says:
