Home Sweet Home

 Hello Natural Health Family. We had an amazing weekend celebrating the wedding of my brother and now wife in California. It was great being able to spend time with family and friends that I haven’t been able to see in a long while. Many times people can get caught up in the business of traveling and doing what needs to be done for all the work needed for a wedding. We all know how it can seem stressful during these times. However, when it is all said and done we look back to wonder why we stressed out so much in the first place. Much of the time it is a matter of being able to relax and let life unfold. 

I am sure many of us have heard the phrase, “home is where you make it.” This can seem like a cheesy phrase from a movie but it can have great effects on the way we live. When we are at home we feel safe, more relaxed, and able to do what we need to do. So when we feel at home in other areas such as all the way in California we can start to let events unfold. Of course we don’t want to be careless about our belongings or act in certain ways that are not suitable for the environment. Nonetheless, we can practice being in this state of mind which allows our own bodies to be in a state of ease. There may have been events or circumstances in the past that we felt anxious or overwhelmed about because of something that happened. However, it is up to us to be able to retrain the way we see events and know that there is nothing to be afraid or feel bad for. We must be able to let it go so that we can live life more where we are at. 

Weddings along with other events may have some bumps along the way but that is what can make it memorable. Looking back and being able to laugh at all the little things that would have stressed us out before can be a fun experience. When it comes to future events or daily life, when we know that there can be ups and downs then we are not so concerned when something supposedly goes wrong. We are able to reframe the situation and shift knowing that it may have been needed to redirect us to a different more helpful path. 

Although where we live can be nice to get back to and relax, the world can be our home. As we are able to appreciate all the good in life and what is in front of us, we can feel more at ease even though we may be going through big life events. We can’t control everything, but we can control how we respond in our environment and choose how to interact. So whether you may be at home or far from it physically, know that you have the power and choice to be home with a little change in how we see it.

Thanks for reading.
