Healing is a Journey, not a Destination

A journey is the act of traveling from one place to another, while a destination is a place to which someone is journeying to. Healing is a journey because you are always adjusting for what you need once you receive that you can either journey to the next thing or discover how to be greater where you are. A destination means that you have arrived and there is nothing more for you to do, healing is something that can be explored for a lifetime. Never stop being great or believing that you can be or do better.

Just because you have healed from the past, does not mean life stops. Life will always have its obstacles, you are just better equipped to handle whatever they are, as they come. Now, when you become upset, you have a tool for that. When you need to set a goal and delay gratification, you have a tool for that as well.  

Congratulate yourself for achieving each goal and then set a new one. Explore different interest, travel to new places, see things you’ve always wanted to see, read things you are curious about, find new ways to exercise your body, take care of your skin, and nourish your spirit.

Check In: Take 5

Sometimes we all just need a moment to slow down and take note of how we are doing. We live busy lives and feel like we are always - going, going, going. Take a moment to check in and share how you are doing in 5 main categories:

  1. Overall Mood - Are you functioning in a fog or with clear focus?
  2. Eat/Water - Are you making healthy eating choices and staying hydrated?
  3. Exercise - Are you staying physically active for 30 minutes, 3x per week?
  4. Sleep - Are you getting enough sleep and waking up feeling rested?
  5. Mindfulness - Are you being mindful of your triggers and using self-regulation?

Check in here as much or as little as you would like (daily, weekly, monthly). Review the 5 categories and give yourself one star for each category you are doing well in. If there is a category that you feel needs improvement, take away one star.

For example, this week I made healthy eating choices, drank 8 cups of water/day, I went to sleep late a few nights, but still performed well as far as mood.

Check In: Take 5

My daily walk did help to relieve some stress this week. I need to work on being more mindful-someone cut me off on the freeway Tuesday morning and as I pulled into the parking lot of my destination, I could tell I was still upset about what happened 20 minutes earlier. So, this week I would rate my check in at 4 stars.
