The Strength Of Your Limitations
In 2018 when I had developed a heart condition because of my incorrect nutrition, exercise and recovery practices, I felt like I was being held back from doing things I really needed and wanted to do. What I learned is that I am not held back at all, but these limitations have become a strength to me in creating and maintaining balance. And this has helped me to create a strong and thriving life that I believe I would not have otherwise experienced! The same goes for you- you may have things in your life you feel are keeping you from being "healthy"; could you actually use these limitations as strengths to create true health because of them? Whether that's having Diabetes, life in a wheelchair, a disease or syndrome that has stopped you from feeling you could be healthy. How can you use it to your advantage? Make it a strength, and see your health soar!
