Although I write about running, and weight loss, and gym time my blog is very different than the majority of “healthy living blogs” out there. I tend to be a bit more wordy and talk about some taboo type subjects regarding my past relationship, my past professions, my past failures, and my current state of “being a mess”. But I try to do so fairly. & truthfully. & reasonably. & rationally. I do this because I believe that when I share these segments of myself, even (and especially) when it makes me feel completely vulnerable, I am making a healthy decision for my life; I am taking a step in healthy living.
I think it all stems from my definition of healthy-living. To me, healthy living is not only about nutrition and fitness. It’s more than what you are eating and what kind of exercise you are doing each week. Healthy living is more about healing, and having a healthy soul. Facing fears and becoming a stronger person. Listening to your heart and knowing how to take advice and ask for help when needed. Helping others and telling the truth, even and especially when its hard. Being genuine in your actions and open to others’ opinions. Its about finding out what makes me, me and aiding people in realizing how special they are. Its about following my giftings and knowing the difference between selfishness and anger. Its about learning and gaining self worth. Struggling to do these for mentioned things and questioning, and doubting, and yet still having hope and faith enough to move forward. Its all these things and more. These are the things make Then Heather Said a healthy living blog.
These are the reasons we started the guest post series, the More Than Series; because healthy living is more than nutrition and fitness. So much more.
Healthy Living is about….
