When the doctor told me I was on the verge of having diabetes, I knew I had to change the unhealthy lifestyle I had been on.
The first thing that I had to work on was my mindset. Thinking self-care was not for me was the wrong mindset. I opened my bible and I read what God had to say about self-care
- My body is the temple of the Holy Spirt (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
- I was wonderfully created. (Psalms 139:13-24
- I can do this (Philippians 4:13)
- God wants me to be healthy (3 John 1:3)
- Satan wants to destroy me, but if I trust God I will be ok (1 Peter 5:7-9)
- My body is for God's glory (Romans 12:1-2)
- I am God's workmanship (Ephesians 2:10)
Loving myself did not mean I had to change the core of who I am, but accepting myself just as I am. Loving myself meant to take care of my body. Loving myself meant to put my needs as a priority. Loving myself meant spending more time with God and discover who I truly am.
Today I am a much happier mom & wife. I love to cook for my family and I take special care of our diets. I learned a lot about food and its effects on our bodies. Gut health became very important and I am cautious about selecting wholesome ingredients.
I became a certified Christian Life & Mindset Coach because I wanted to help women build confidence, improve their self-love routines and create a positive and confident mindset. I rely on the Scriptures to coach my clients and I design a custom plan to maximize their potential.
It has been quite an exciting and rewarding journey so far; one I am still living and enjoying very, very much!
