I believe that life has more to offer us than most are aware of. Living a Life Full of Vitality means being able to physically do what you want to do. When your mind wants to do something and your body says “No” that is a major red flag to pay attention to. We want to be healthy and should be healthy. Do not buy the lie that just because you are over 40, you are over the hill. There are plenty of examples of people that are over 40 and DO live a Life of Vitality. So can YOU! I believe every one of us can if we put our minds to it.
Also, I believe that Living a Life Full of Vitality means being wealthy enough to say “Yes” to whatever that “something” is to you. A new dress may mean a great time out with your husband. Or a new car may mean to you that you are successful (or at least makes you feel safe, not having to drive around an old car that may breakdown at any moment). A college fund for your children may mean security and be able to give your kids a good start in life. All these things we want to say “Yes” to, and we should be able to say “Yes” to them in my opinion. I’ve learned that this world is full of beauty and abundance, and it’s there for our taking when we align our lives up to receive it. I believe anyone who really wants to be wealthy can be.
Let’s talk about looks. We don’t want to appear shallow or vain, but most of us if we are truthful with ourselves, we want to look good, attractive, and healthy. God sure does make the males in nature beautiful with their dazzling colors. Why not us men and women, as people too? There is nothing wrong with wanting to look good. That to me is part of Living a Life of Vitality. Yes, of course, the outside of us gets old, and if the outside beauty is all we are concerned with, then we are shallow and vain because true beauty starts within. So this takes us to our next point of Vitality-
Inner Improvement: I believe in the Japanese word “Kaizen” which means to improve upon yourself every day. Manners, knowledge, giving to others, etc, etc. can be, and must be applied every day of our lives.
Emotionally Healthy: If we are insecure when there is no reason to be, we are not emotionally healthy. A healthy self-image is a good thing! On going depression, fear, hopelessness, all these things are the opposite of Living a Life of Vitality. We CAN get our emotions balanced in a positive light through all the things I talk about here in this blog. There are essential oils to help with emotional support. Mixed with positive self affirmations, prayer, and believing the truth, all work together to create a healthy emotional state of being.
Spiritually: Last, but perhaps should be first is to pay attention to our spirit. No, not our emotions, but our spirit. Every human being on the face of this earth has a spirit that will live way beyond the physical life. To live a life of true vitality is to have a spiritual life. Not just for the hereafter, but for here and now. Spiritual things are first before the physical. Most of the time we have it backward and we are paying more attention to the things we sense and can detect. Smell, taste, touch, sight. The truth is, there is a reality that is first, and that is Spirit. The Bible says God is a spirit and that God spoke everything into existence. So you see, spirit came first and then the elements.
I believe that Essential oils and oil infused products from Young Living can contribute to all these points of Living a Life Full of Vitality.
We are wonderfully made and it’s up to us to keep it that way. It’s my desire to help you do just that. I’m on this journey called “life” with you. Let’s do it together!
May your days be filled with good health, good friends, good food, and most of all; much love,
