What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love - Affirm: I am health

Wellness and the state of being healthy becomes a personal goal maintained by personal mantras and fuelled by personal beliefs. And I for one don't have a problem with that. In fact, I may possibly prefer it, as this wellness is a self determined wellness. This is a state of being healthy
that is beyond trend and fad and buzzword. This wellness is self aligning
and ancestrally defining. It is the product of an implosion of internal
interactions, initiating inner-standing and self centering communication.

Mummy always said, if you can't hear, then you must feel. And this is the
truth. If one cannot listen to the messages of the mind, body and soul,
then one will simply have to feel what it is, that is attempting to be
communicated. Natalie Stewart

One of my favorite ladies, Lisa, said last year that it was time for her to
be healthy, and she was committed to it. Now Lisa to me was healthy, she
had gained some weight but she was carrying it well! But what she said
resonated with me, she said the weight was brought about soley by her
thoughts about her self. She called it the inner workout, listening to her
body and paying attention to her feelings, she said "I didn't lose weight
because I don't plan on ever finding it again" Lisa lost 50 pounds (who
knew she had 50 pounds to lose? I sure didn't!) in 3 months by simple
exercising, eating less and paying attention to her feelings, then taking
the appropriate action. She looks super fantastic, confident and full of

I was inspired by the approach. Inner and outer alignment, paying attention to feelings and taking action, being gentle with yourself when you fall off the wagon and most importantly letting go of everything toxic, inner and outer!

Thank you Lisa for sharing your journey.
