Social media is usually all pretty pictures and positive posts (at least the people I follow,) but I wanted to get real for a bit because I know that there are people out there watching or reading
who may need to see this. Someone might be feeling how I was feeling.

If you know me personally or have been following me for a while, you know that I am in the holistic health industry and have been for the last 10 years or so. However, recently, I had stopped all of it because I was feeling miserable. So much so, that I actually (voluntarily) went to the doctor to run a bunch of tests because some days it was a real struggle to get out of bed physically, plus all my stress was building up and then the emotional component kicked in too. Not only was I not feeling well physically, but I also had an overwhelming feeling of sadness and worry. I won't even get into all of that now, if you know me personally, you can just imagine.

Mostly, I was feeling serious fatigue all the time, in pain all over my body and basically just really "blah" emotionally! Between my physical ailments and the level of stress I was trying to handle, it was no fun. Stress is always much more difficult to handle when you are not feeling your best. It is easy to be happy and motivated when you are healthy but when you feel like crap, that's when the real challenge kicks in. And when you don't feel well, that's when your mind starts racing and you start coming up with all kinds of doom & gloom scenarios - well, at least I did. LOL!

Anyway, getting to the afternoon, like 2-3:00p.m. was a real struggle for me on the daily, without binging on coffee because my energy was so low - especially with my low Vitamin D levels, according to my latest labs. I was so fatigued that I didn't even have the strength to walk my dog without feeling like I was going to pass out.

One of my online friends/mentor reached out to me about something she was trying for her health and mental wellness, and because I know, like and trust her, I was open to learn more about it.

Long story short is, if you are in the health and wellness industry, like me, at the very least, you should be a good representation of what you are promoting. For me, feeling well was and is important not only for myself, for my children, and for my family, but because I do my best to make a living as a brand ambassador helping others feel well, so if I was not feeling well, how could I show my face or promote any products?

After a few weeks of being a real emotional mess, I decided ENOUGH! I activated and made a decision that I do NOT want to feel like this!

Despite my brain surgery, (post headaches,) having one kidney, menopause symptoms and some auto-immune issues, I decided I can be healthy or at the very least, get serious about my journey again!

So, I made the conscious decision to start writing/blogging again, as an outlet and added a plant-based "Holistic Solution Bundle" to my daily regimen for my health and mental wellness. And so far, in a short period of time, I have already noticed the difference.

✌🏻I have way more energy all day.
✌🏻I am no longer feeling sad or down, which I was for the first time
in a very long time - you know that feeling "blah" on the daily,
where you don't want to do anything or see anyone. this was a bit
more than my just usual anti-social episodes. LOL! It was no
picnic feeling like that.
✌🏻That lazy/lethargic feeling during the day is gone and I am able to
focus and stay on task, which is a big deal between my brain
surgery after-effects and menopause (brain fog.) #ifykyk
✌🏻Sleeping all night and I wake up feeling well-rested.
✌🏻Most days I WAS feeling miserable ALL day and now, I can keep
going all day and mostly have my energy back! At least I don't
have to binge on coffee anymore.
✌🏻As a matter of fact, I have been able to cut back on my coffee

If you are not taking care of your gut health or your mental wellness, you can start to feel off balance physically and emotionally. Which reminds me! One of the most important things I forgot to mention before, is that it has helped me tremendously with my own gut health.

Working on your whole mind & body is the key to optimal health. You need to be your best fit self (physically & emotionally) to be able to handle those tower moments we all face. Especially, us women, who are always trying to take care of everyone else and "mother" and protect the ones we love, while sometimes ignoring our own needs.

In all transparency, let's get real! This doesn't mean that I still don't have my moments or that I feel like "Super Woman" everyday (not just yet, give me some more time - LOL!) What it means is that I found a natural option to help me on my journey back to good health again and I took that path. Everyone has different choices to make. I am simply sharing my experience and the choice I made to get myself back on a holistic path to wellness. The reality is like Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Once YOU make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen," and things and people are placed before you to put you back into alignment.

Happiness & Health is not a destination. It is a constant journey of self-development, of self-reflection and of working on our physical fortitude.

I am here to share H.O.P.E. (helping other people everywhere) to let you know that there are options to make us feel better naturally. And if I can help or motivate just one person, then I consider that a success for the day!

Wellness is not just popping pills or constant doctor visits. It is knowing that there is hope and that you can awaken the best version of yourself with a little help and effort on your part. You have to seriously ask yourself, "Am I putting in the work on the daily to feel better and to be happier in my life?

Personally, my next goal after I continue to get my emotional & physical health back on track, is to lose weight! That's coming!

Remember that getting to A Fit Place: mind, body and soul takes work! No one is going to change your life for you. You can ask for help, and be steered in the right direction, but ultimately, YOU have to be ready, you have to be willing, and YOU have to make the change.

If you have any of the issues I mentioned above or need an overall gut/weight realignment system, I urge you to get in touch with me or whoever sent you this article.

And always, always remember, Faith over Fear!

Be well Warriors!
