My blogging schedule doesn’t normally have Saturday posts, but sometimes I lead with my heart and not my plans.
Since I was able to speak at HOBY yesterday, I can’t stop thinking about how much gratitude I have toward being able to serve you.
People like you who:
are sick and tired of being sick and tired.
wrestle autoimmune disease and digestive disorders.
follow a plan, not tailored to your specific needs, so nothing ever seems to work.
have dreams bigger than the sky, but fear you aren’t capable to live them out.
sit on the other side of my desk, one month into Nutritional Therapy, and your life has already changed.
People who see my posts and enjoy the fun facts and quick tips.
I enjoy encouraging, educating, and loving each one of you.
There are people out there that have millions, literally millions, of “followers” (I don’t even like that word, really) and readers, but as teeny-tiny as I am in this huge world, serving those who choose me makes my heart pitter-patter. It also keeps me pushing through on my toughest days.
Each and every comment, share, “like”, “keep it up!” doesn’t go unnoticed.
Most of all, thank you. Each of you who are out there rooting me on and appreciate my advice and what I have to say. Who trust my knowledge and experience and allow me to serve you. It’s truly an honor.
Now, on with the show:
1. Don’t give Up
No matter your line of work, serving others can lead you to become discouraged and downhearted. On days you feel like giving up, that you’re not making a difference, and you’re not sure why you even try, stay strong. You are your own worst critic and while it seems you’re helping no one, you’re helping someone (someone you may not even know.)
In regard to your health, don’t give up on it, either. Sometimes, while it’s frustrating and seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, just keep going and don’t give up on yourself.
2. Find Your Tribe
It’s key to have a support system around you; those that are going down similar life paths and can understand the ups and downs of serving others. When you find a community that you connect with you’ll find overwhelming rushes of energy, love, and the celebration of joy it provides. Your tribe will help build you up when you’re feeling down and push you to go beyond your own limits and expectations.
Also, find those that support your health and lifestyle goals. On the days you’ll want to throw in the towel and “you’re never going to feel better” they’ll help keep you on the path to pressing on and encouraged that you can do whatever you set your mind to.
3. Believe in Yourself
You’re amazing. You are an individual that possesses special qualities, strengths, and traits. You serve others in a way that has never been done before; therefore, you bring to the table unique service unlike anyone else.
Your work is a masterpiece and you, yourself, are divine as made by the Divine.
Believe in yourself because you are beautifully and wonderfully made.
Like I said above, you can do anything you put your mind to. You’re a rockstar so keep acting like it.
4. Let Love Win
There will be days that others put you down, even the ones that you’re serving with all your might. Someone will disagree with you, they’ll make their harsh opinion known, and they’ll beat you down. Despite their behavior, let love win. Love them and serve them just as you do your biggest fan. Pour words of kindness and grace over them, extinguishing the fire they’ve set ablaze.
Hurting people hurt people. They just need a little more love.
*Side note, love doesn’t mean you’re a pushover. Boundaries are a beautiful thing.
In the case of your health, love yourself and the journey. You’re the only one out there that knows you the way you do. Love the good, embrace the “bad”, and love yourself to the point where you see love in the change and growth.
Consequently, love will win.
5. Take Care of Yourself
You have a servant’s heart. You take care of everyone else, but neglect yourself.
The catch is, you can’t pour from an empty cup. You have to take care of yourself. Nurture your soul.
In order to do this, schedule in and practice some self care. Plant some plants, take a relaxing bath, enjoy a glass of (organic, sulfate-free 😉 ) wine while watching a movie with your spouse. Whatever it is that refills your cup, do that. Serving others is draining, there is no doubt. Whether physically draining, mentally draining, or both; you can’t forget about yourself.
Serve others, but don’t forget to take care of yourself.
And as a result of all these actions, you’ll serve others, and yourself, with all of your heart.
While this blog isn’t my typical post about how to nourish and rebalance your body through nutrition and holistic lifestyle, it was on my heart and I felt led to share.
I hope you enjoyed and if all you get out of this blog is that you’re special and unique and while you serve others with your whole heart, you have to take care of yourself as well, my job is complete.
I, from the bottom of my heart, genuinely enjoy serving each of you.
In love and heath,
