A text this week from my youngest:
“I am trying to concentrate on just doing small things to take better care of my body.”
Contemplating health is not new to me. It is to him, however, and a new conversation emerged between us as a result. Health. All kinds of health. What it means to be healthy. How to be healthy.
Mind. Body. Spirit. Soul. Heart. Relationships.
His thought stayed with me all week.
And offered a new kind of hope.
One at a time, small things build me, bit by bit, brick by brick, into a stronger person, healthier, happier in my life and relationships.
One small thing which makes me happy. One small thing which feeds my soul. One small way to move my body … fuel my body … nourish my body.
One small action to better the world, brighten a day, honor a friendship.
One small moment to breathe more deeply. To read more closely. To listen more carefully. To decide more thoughtfully. To hope more actively.
Health. Happiness. Hope.
One by one by one.
