Most people would feel bad about destroying the property of another person. Yet they are not kind to the very property that they have been gifted………….their body! Guarding our body, mind and soul is very important. If it is not a daily practice now, we must protect our health first of all by paying attention to what we put into our mouths. Eat smaller portions. A plate full of greens and whole foods with a diet omitting ingredients that we cannot pronounce is an excellent way to care for this temple we were given.
Along with a proper diet and a practice of good habits, we must also protect ourselves from negative information and people. We often fail in this endeavor as we let useless information and stupidity into our minds. By watching television and listening to the media, we allow the trite and negative to enter our minds ever so slowly. From all of this we do not grow wiser but instead we become less informed, and poorer. Feed your brain with positive and empowering information.
Take a look at the people we let into our lives. Are we allowing in those who are negative, those who poison our potential? Are we always allowing ourselves to be hurt? If so, these people must go! Don’t think they will go on there own for they will stay around as long as we allow it. At the same time, it is uniquely important to surround ourselves with people who are positive, inspiring and possess a kind spirit. Invite them into your home, into your circle of friends and into your life.
It is up to us to be fierce guardians of our happiness and our humanity.
