When you come to find that your heart is at war with your mind, it is time to re-evaluate, refocus and re-align your steady foundation.
Without a harmonious connection of mind, body and soul, we are nothing more than a mere hollow shell. Although our physical characteristics are seemingly the most crucial to identifying who we are, our mental and spiritual development is what serves as the true determinant of our impact on this world. It is the unity of a physical movement, with a hopeful thought and a good intention that come together to build the person beneath the physical outer layer. It is the gratitude we feel in the midst of using our bodies to better ourselves or better this world. It is not the empty words we say, but rather the way we make others feel by utilizing the raw love in our hearts to lift others to their highest peak. Nourishment, rest and respect are the root of our wellbeing, for without them, we will crumble. This harmonious connection can be recognized when we finally put our minds and bodies to rest at the end of a long day, and feel nothing but the utmost contentment within our souls, knowing that we've done everything in our power to make ourselves better within these 24 hours. Allow yourself these moments to reflect, and be proud of yourself for the impacts you make in people's lives every single day.
