"Don't let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace." -Dalai Lama

So, it has definitely been a hot minute since my last post. Not really my style but let's just say that I've been MIA due to juggling two jobs while trying to maintain somewhat of a social yet healthy lifestyle (hahh).
Did I mention I'm also moving in two weeks?
Regardless, let's get down to business.


What does that word mean exactly? You might be thinking: "Um, it means you're not sick...duh Kimmy." Well, yes it does... but have you ever taken a second to really think about the way you feel on the inside? Health is not just defined as being free of physical pain or sickness. It is also the way your mind works and the way you live your everyday life. I don't know if you took a look at the quote at the top of this post, but it is about maintaining inner peace

Whenever I feel peaceful, it is when I have freed myself of things that I find toxic within my life. It can be anything from unhealthy food items, to a crazy schedule, to actual people who create an imbalance or unhappiness within my life. 

I know this sounds a little cliche, but I cannot emphasize how important it is to recognize the negative things in your life in order to revamp and live the way you are meant to be: happy.

Now, I have to get ready to leave for work but I wanted to sign off with this message: This is your life. You make your own decisions and determine how you want to live it. Don't let the influence of others affect the way you want to spend your time. Do things and spend time with people who make you happy. Take an extra 10 minutes out of your day to appreciate all the wonderful things this world ha to offer that aren't typically apparent. Make yourself happy and healthy.
