I have been thinking … and that could be a dangerous thing to do. I have a position in this universe, this world, this creation that is uniquely me. There is no one just like me. People have told me that I look like someone they know, but he wasn’t me. And in college I had an eerie experience to be acquainted with a guy who I thought looked like me, but he wasn’t me. In this life, I have been given roles such as husband, father, son, brother, cousin, uncle, friend, health coach, colleague, student, neighbor, dog owner … All of these unique me-roles can only be filled by me! These roles influence every area of my life. Every day, every hour, or every minute, my role can change. At any moment many different roles can mix together. Life can get complicated for sure!
I know that you have about the same number of roles as I do, possible many more. You constantly juggle roles, tasks, and lists every day. Depending on your circumstances and the people around you, your roles, tasks, and lists constantly change. I want to tell you that it’s OK to take a break every now and then. A break is a good time to relax, think, meditate, and pray!
And when taking a break, it’s also OK to grab a healthy snack. We just need to be mindful of the things we grab to eat … our comfort food. I call this mindful eating. So in the midst of figuring out what you are, know you are not alone. We travel in this world together. Does this make sense? And if I can be helpful to you in my role as a health coach, let me know.
