My Challenge Today:

Handful of friends …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

I cannot even imagine where I would be today

were it not for that handful of friends

who have given me a heart full of joy.

Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

Friends make life a lot more fun and a handful of friends is all it takes! I am so lucky to have a handful of friends that I know are there for me at any time that I need them or want them, just the same as I am there for them. Friends are such an important part of life and they absolutely add vitality to our life. Family, friends, neighbors and co-workers are truly an important part of our Living Fit Lifestyle. We need people, we need to socialize and we suffer when we isolate ourselves. I actually know this by personal experience, I am an introvert and I have a natural tendency to isolate myself ~ not a good idea.

 

This conversation goes with the concept of Primary Nutrition ~ when we are nourished from all aspects of our life, we are not inclined to use food as a pacifier. When we make friends with people and have satisfying relationships we are not inclined to use food to satisfy our unmet needs. When we have satisfying social lives we are less inclined to overdo food and drink, we can satiate our desires with emotional connections with friends that will be there for us throughout our life.
