>Priorities, Priorities, Priorities!

>Now it would be silly for a homeowner of a dilapidated, “falling apart from the inside out” house to put a new roof on it and give it a brand new paint job. That would just seem like a waste of time and money. If the foundation is crumbling, if the electrical and plumbing need fixing, why would anyone worry about cosmetic fixes like paint? This seems like a silly, unlikely circumstance, but people do it every single day with their bodies. Check the correlation.

People will go out of their way to get their weaves done, their weekly haircuts, or 6-week relaxers. People will spend a whole paycheck on a shopping spree. They have the latest, most trendy ‘fits with all the best accessories. Nails: check. Shoe game: proper. Make-up: check, check! All the cosmetic, outwardly stuff is taken care. But their insides are completely jacked up. What is the purpose of dressing up and staying stylish, but at the same time allowing your body to just break down? I just don’t get it. People put so much emphasis on ish that doesn’t make sense to me. Maybe someone can explain it. I just figure I would rather be healthy and fit and just wear Target clothes and accessories. That is just me.

I really wanna know…maybe someone can explain it to me. How can one validate allowing your body to just break down…and a slow, painful break down at that? Wouldn’t it be better to feel better just from the inside out, as opposed to cosmetic fixes? And how fleeting is that feeling when you are dressed to the nines, hair fresh, but can’t make it up 2 flights of stairs without having an asthma attack? There is a better way peeps. Take control of your life. Make your body and health the priority. You will feel so much better for it.

  1. >Girl, you betta preach that thang! In my situation, I am skinny, So if anything, I need to GAIN some weight…lol. But just because you are skinny on the outside, it does not mean that you don't need to fix in inside with a proper diet, or that you dont have to exercise to keep yourself healthy. Most of the dis-eases and ailments that we have are easily preventable with a healthy diet and exercise.
