I’m often asked, “how are you so strong?”
I can’t say I have this answer all figured out.
I do know that being strong is a choice.
I do know that my emotions do not have to dictate my actions.
I do know that everything we do and how we behave is a choice.
If there is anything I wish to tell anyone is to Love Yourself. Love yourself enough to take care of you and learn what is best for you. Living a healthy life includes, if not, it preludes daring to living life fully.
Twenty two months into Ryan’s healing journey and I had to make a conscious decision. Do I want to be vulnerable again or not? Do I expose my thoughts, my feelings, my heart for the world to see? To read? To feel and to JUDGE?
"It's always the perspective in which we frame our language, that inspires us to keep going as we navigate the mysterious terrain of what it means to be human." #WFTR ~Ryan D. Luelf
Embrace the journey . . . keep cycling thru. We have embraced the journey of uncovering one stone at a time. While at times we have collapsed timeframes, moved quickly and swiftly to make changes, uncover issues and changed paths when we needed to . . . we also know we are human and we just cannot make a perfect decision every single time. It is impossible for me, for Ryan, and honestly, for YOU.
This is a journey we have come to embrace.
What if everything I wanted was right in front of me and only fear stood in the way? What if I was currently living a life that was more interested in making others around me happy than what I really wanted for myself?
A deep desire to search again, to reclaim what is already there and dig through the muck of what we call fear, love and everything in between.
We see ourselves as guides, maybe more of a “ life coach” type of title so our hearts are to point to possibilities and let the person decide what type of journey they want to go on.
Because this just confirms what I already knew. And, these results do not change what I am continuing to do. What I will continue to eat. Our path is our lifestyle. My healing journey doesn’t stop now. It actually confirms that I must keep going. I will keep going. I will continue to progressively move to a higher and higher percentage of plant based eating. I will continue to heal my body.
