It is well with my spirit, or is it?
Every day, we come across information offering new and better ways to eat, exercise, manage our time, invest our money and so on. We are the best consumer generation to-date. We flock to the next trend with open hearts and open wallets in the pursuit of “better living.” While some of the trends may be good for us, for them to produce long-lasting results, they must be built upon our innermost part of our being, our spirit, where our true self lives. That’s the critical part we often miss, our spirit – without caring for our spiritual health, which is the foundation of our life, all other layers of “good works” crumble and fall. There are many ways to invest in spiritual wellness like; being quick to forgive ourselves and others, always ready to extend generosity and kindness. Since all humankind is connected, for us to be truly well, we should be receptive to the needs of others and find ways to help. In this way, we live-in the “we” in wellness – and we all succeed at becoming well.
So, why not start a new trend to become intentional about our spiritual wellness? We can work together to share experiences and resources that would help us build a better version of ourselves, our families, our communities and beyond. Collectively, we can start a new wave of goodness. The tide is strong are you ready to jump in? Let’s hope so, we need you.
My heart sees you,

“You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own. So then, you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Be tolerant with one another and forgive one another whenever one of you has a complaint against someone else. You must forgive one another just as the Lord has forgiven you. And to all these qualities add love, which binds all things together in perfect unity.”
Colossians 3: 12-14 Today’s English Version
