As I continue on the journey to become healthy, I'm not stressed out about losing weight anymore. I'm enjoying the mental release that exercise gives me and the cleaner I eat, the more energy I have. I'm tracking my calories in and my calories out. It's pretty simple. The human mind creates the chaos. I am not perfect, but I am perfectly human. This was the first year I did not make a New Year's resolution. I didn't need to resolve any issue that I've dealing with because it's not for me to fix; it's already being acted on from up above. In the past 10 days, I have lost 6.25 pounds, and yet I feel like I haven't put in 100%.
Quiet contentment. So that's what peace feels like. I can't help but smile. Or perhaps make a goofy face.
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. (Proverbs 14:30)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
