My Wellness And A Body In Balance

My journey to holistic health and wellness has been a long and challenging process, with so many trials and errors behind me, which had left me on many crossroads to searching for the perfect fit to my changing health and wellness needs.

Among these many paths I found various books, blogs and magazines that gave me a good footing to ask questions, seek broader resources and obtain more knowledge to tread further on my holistic journey.

In May of 2010 I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes and my whole view of health, fitness and wellness changed forever (will cover in more detail with a post). While trying to process the emotional and physical aspects with being diabetic it became clear that everything to my whole wellness is in ME, all I have to do is seek the knowledge of my roots (history, origin and culture), and there I will find the answers to emerging my complete wellness.

I am more geared to eating and creating 100% nature inspired plant-based foods from the earth. I have also transitioned to more holistic, natural and organic products, created in my kitchen or from other natural sources, that enhances my whole essence from the top of my crown to the tips of my feet. 

My fitness which I refer to as my wellness is very simple which consists of running, yoga, lifting weights and walkingI do not put too much emphasis on what my body looks like, but just measure my progress on how I feel and what my body can do.  

I am not a fitness professional and am not in any position to give fitness or training tips. I just know what works for me and benefits all areas of my life to bring whole balance peacefully and positively.

Life, Love, Relationships

“When you love someone, you do not love them all the time, in exactly the same way, from moment to moment. It is an impossibility. It is even a lie to pretend to. And yet this is exactly what most of us demand. We have so little faith in the ebb and flow of life, of love, of relationships. We leap at the flow of the tide and resist in terror its ebb. We are afraid it will never return. We insist on permanency, on duration, on continuity; when the only continuity possible, in life as in love, is in growth, in fluidity – in freedom, in the sense that the dancers are free, barely touching as they pass, but partners in the same pattern.

The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what was in nostalgia, nor forward to what it might be in dread or anticipation, but living in the present relationship and accepting it as it is now. Relationships must be like islands, one must accept them for what they are here and now, within their limits – islands, surrounded and interrupted by the sea, and continually visited and abandoned by the tides.”
