I have had a very trying emotional day. Today is one of those days that I wish I could exchange what I have gained in physical strength for emotional strength. Did I survive today? Yes, praise God! Do I think I handled what was thrown my way today better because I am fit and healthy? Absoultely!! I honestly believe that when we work out and eat healthy we are not only creating a strong body, but we are also creating a strong mind. It takes determination and commitment to stick to your health and fitness goals. As you accomplish them and as you get healthy physically I believe we also get healthier mentally. Something changes in our thinking pattern, and as we overcome obstacles and learn to do things we never thought we could physically our minds become stronger and in turn help us handle our emotions better as well. I’m sorry today’s post is short and not very elegantly written. I am tired and emotionally exhausted. Grateful that things are not worse then they could be, hopeful that they can get better, and prayerful that God is in charge of it all!!!
