Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge Day 2*
Quotation Inspiration. Find a quote that inspires you (either positively or negatively) and free write about it for 15 minutes.
“Without health, life is not life” ~Buddha
Focusing on my health is not selfish. Carefully choosing what goes into my body is not snobbery. Prioritizing fresh air, exercise, and rest is not time wasted. This is life. This is life worth living. This is a life that makes me feel strong, competent, and ALIVE.
*This month I am participating in Wego‘s Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge. Wego Health is a social media network focused on health activism. The challenge (HAWMC) runs the month of April and the goal is to write 28-30 (you get 2 days off if you need ‘em) health-related posts. Wego sends you a list of prompts for each day and, although you are in no way required to use them, I will mostly be following the list. I chose to participate in the challenge after stumbling upon it during an unrelated search and am looking forward to this “online writing workshop”. You can participate too! If you have a venue for online writing and this challenge sounds intriguing to you then join in! Sign up to have the prompts sent to you here. Check out the HAWMC blog, Facebook page, or #HAWMC for more of the good stuff: health activism!
What a great quote – it’s very true!
One of the coolest pics evah! So green, so fit, so joyful. Makes me super stoked for swimsuit season!
I love your photo in this post. It is inspiring in so many ways. I also love the message you convey in this post. I sometimes do feel selfish for prioritizing my health, rest, and exercise. It often means saying no to friends who do not prioritize what I feel so passionate about. In the end, I feel wonderful about myself – but, still just a bit guilty or selfish. Thank you for inspiring through your confidence and positivity!
Thanks Laura! I sometimes feel guilty too but remember that if you didn’t prioritize yourself that you wouldn’t be able to be a good friend/partner/employee so it’s really not selfish at all! 🙂
Absolutely the truth! Cheers to a great week, Faith!
