Consider the whole person, determine the root cause, provide support with gentleness and compassion.
Have you lost your sense of purpose and also begun to play Whac-A-Mole with your health? That’s where I found myself a few years ago.
My lifelong desire was to be a wife and mother. When I got married and had kids, I thought my dream had come true. Then, it all fell apart. I got divorced and spent over a decade as a single mom. That was not fun.
Years later, I met and married a wonderful man who was also a single parent. I quit work to stay home with the kids. Eventually, they all graduated and left home. My husband was still working, and I was feeling quite alone and unimportant.
I had no idea what to do. I couldn’t just sit around feeling sorry for myself. I decided it was time for ME to find new meaning in my life.
So, I went back to school and followed a long-held dream of studying alternative medicine. Every day I was learning more, and it was all I could talk about. I think my husband got a little tired of hearing it after a while.
Don’t get me wrong. My husband was, and is, very supportive. He just doesn’t LOVE alternative medicine like I do. He’s been game, though, and we’ve put what I learned to use in our own lives. My education has helped us safely overcome a variety of health challenges. My education has served as a great form of health insurance.
This kind of “insurance” has given me better health than many of my peers, but I know true health encompasses more than just physical well-being. A sense of purpose and meaning is important, too.
I’ve managed to improve my own health and well-being and now have the joy of making a difference in the lives of others. With renewed confidence and purpose, I’m a far cry from where I was a few years ago.
