HOW FOCUSING ON MY WELLNESS, CHANGED MY LIFE
I have been embracing an all natural/holistic lifestyle since 2009. I have been on my spiritual journey since 2014. That's a 5 year difference. It took me 5 YEARS to realize that only prioritizing my physical health and sometimes my mental health was not going to cut it.
I wasn't raised especially religious or involved in the church, but my family is from South Carolina, so we identified as Southern Baptist Christians (yes even in New York). As soon as I was old enough, I chose to get as far away from the hypocritical Christians that I had experienced growing up. Only God can judge me right? And that was the end of my spirituality. Or so I thought.
Fast forward, to 2009. Everything was just going wrong for me. My life was in shambles. I recently had to drop out of college and return home, which thrusted me into a deep depression. I quickly realized I would fuse to my sofa if I didn't try at life. So I started working out. Of course were talking doing Walk-at-home DVD videos because my hatred for the gym runs deep. Once I started losing weight, I started to feel like my old self again. But, let me tell you, the reunion was short lived. I was back to feeling like the version of myself, before experiencing one of the biggest disappointments in my life. But boy was she broken. I had gotten my mental health under control, I was expressing myself through my writing, keeping in touch with loved ones, I had gotten my own place and some sense of independence back, but it was always fleeting.
I FELT LIKE EVERYTHING WAS GOING WRONG,
