When drops of water fill a jar, the first drop does not fill it,

Nor the last, nor each drop individually.

Yet, eventually, the jar fills up due to all the drops together!

The same is true for health. There is no single food or exercise that makes you healthy.If you want to experience health, you have to do many things that promote health. When we group these individual things together they form our intent. A person’s intent can be thought of as an invisible force that creates direction and helps generate motivation.

Part of changing our health is seeing how our daily actions are are like those drops of water. Over time they mold our bodies and minds into who we are, right now. So pause and reflect, not in a critical or harsh way, but with a loving curiosity about your choices today. Ask yourself “What am I doing to create a healthy intent?” Begin to explore any feelings of health and well being resulting from your choice. Awareness of the moment is the key to find out which choice helped you and which choice you can let go of. Over time this awareness helps you to make decisions for a life that is well lived!

See my beautiful garden on Facebook for this year and last: https://www.facebook.com/bob.wilson.501151/media_set?set=a.10200189400513320.1073741826.1100972595&type=1 and https://www.facebook.com/bob.wilson.501151/media_set?set=a.3115164833672.2118582.1100972595&type=3 Notice how the garden evolves throughout the year! It is always changing….just as OUR lives do! It benefits from focused attention, watering, pruning, and fertilizing….then it blossoms!

 If  you want the result (being more fit and healthier),

You have to create the causes (the daily lifestyle choices)!
