Why Do You Want to Be Healthy?

Wellness Wednesday: You tell us.

Today, I pose the question: Why do you want to be healthy?  It is a known fact that if you don’t have a good enough reason to do something, one that motivates through the hard stuff, you won’t do it.  So, I ask you to share your thoughts about this important subject.

Here are my reasons as I stated in a recent comment on BlogHer.

Health is natural. The concept is simple, but the actions required to obtain health are not always easy. We were naturally made to enjoy strength, vitality, and a long, fulfilling life on an equally healthy planet. It’s sad that this has become such a challenge.

Health is responsibility. My mother died at age 59 – far too early for my taste. She lived a life of ill-health, most of which was by her choice. I choose life. I choose responsibility. I choose my golden days to be spent with my children, grandchildren, and even my great grandchildren.

Health is freedom. When you’re sick, you’re not free to work, play, create, travel, have sex, write, or simply enjoy the company of another. It’s the way to be if you want to act on your dreams, even the foolish whims that might get you into trouble.

Health is legacy.What example you live has impact on every one around you. Your actions speak to your world and your DNA is passed along to your offspring. The health footprint you leave is your legacy that will live longer than you will.

I choose to think about all of the above reasons to find and keep my health. I choose the natural way, to be responsible, to be free, and to leave a positive legacy for generations to come.

Be well-be beautiful

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
