Wisdom from Karen Paquette

Imagine a world where people treat themselves, others, and the planet like we treat our newborn babies… We give them limitless unconditional love, strive to predict and exceed their every need, care for, protect, and support them to create a bright, beautiful, successful, and joyous future… What we are doing, in a nutshell, is simply nurturing our baby’s health.

My definition of health includes our physical, mental-emotional, and spiritual health. Whether it be meeting physical needs such as feeding, or mental-emotional needs such as soothing them when they cry, or surrounding them with people who love them or ensuring that their experiences are positive, these are all parts of nurturing the holistic health of a human being. When I say the words ‘nurturing health’ I mean that every choice we make contributes to our holistic health, in body, mind, heart, and/or spirit.

In today’s day and age I meet people who tell me they feel overwhelmed with the state of our people and our planet. They often wonder if or how they can make a difference. They wonder if ‘little ‘ol me’ can have any real positive impact in the world.

I share with them that we can all start by creating healthy bodies, minds, hearts and spirits. And since people and mother nature are all connected it will have a positive impact on others and our beautiful planet….Continue reading at InspireMeToday.com.

For me love is just a word. I believe in compassion, simile and help one another. Strike a conversation with a lonely person and just be kind to others and to environment.

What a great image to put in my head---"treat every one like a new born baby".....don't think it be done all the time, but it's a great image nonetheless.

If only ... back to basics.

Through the age many natural humanities have been diluted, for whatever reason (not brought into the world in love, with the nurturing environment of parents and extended family, etc. to then be passed on naturally when grown and their turn to "pay it forward".

Those who still remember what that was like have an obligation, one to another, to pass it on, in whatever way possible, ... nothing is too small a reintroduction. Love given and received is a powerful tool that spreads and motivates when pure and unconditionally given. CHECK THE QUALITY AND PASS IT ON.
