You’re what you eat

motivational-quotes

You have been given some amazing gifts here. Focus on how you can develop and use them instead of looking at what that girl over there is doing. Be Yourself , You’re Amazing ! Look at the things you have already achieved , overcome and experienced . No one can do you as amazing as you can . You’re responsible for your health, growth and peace of mind .
No one can live a life for you..No one can push for you .. Love you for all that you have been,all that you are , and all you are yet to become .

You are YOU and No one is YOU and that is your super power .

You have one life ..

Live your BEST life ..

I strongly believe, “Health is Wealth” and “You’re what you eat”

Started a healthy eating lifestyle challenge this month ..  #AprilChallenge #selflove #selfcare

Health is not something we have. It’s something we create. Do you agree?!

It’s been over 2 years (today marks the day ) that I’ve eaten a vegetarian diet, and I’ve loved each moment. It’s been a transformative mind, body, spirit journey. It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. Health is something that will never go out of style .. it allows you to live your BEST LIFE. I encourage you to try one vegan meal a day. I don’t need to say much more. You’ll feel and see a difference. Enjoy the gift of health.
