My blog name is Valentine Vitality.
Unlike my surname, I adopted the word Vitality not only because it flows off the tongue quite smoothly when used with Valentine, but mainly because I love the word “Vitality”.
Vitality is such a beautiful word. It is all encompassing, like the word heaven. Vitality is the essence of life itself.
A quick reference to the internet and you will find many sub-meanings but I particularly like these two:
- the capacity to live, grow or develop and
- the principle or force that distinguishes living things from non-living
It also represents ‘energy’. Most of us can be accused of doing our very best to better manage our time. We have been constantly reminded since we were in school of the importance of becoming better time managers. Thousands of books are written every year telling us how to manage our time better, with us wiry-eyed taking notes about how to manage our 86,400 seconds in a day, better, from the many management gurus out there. Does this really help?
In some instances, yes. But in most, I believe – no.
Why? Simply because we are following a paradigm or philosophy that is flawed and we continuously allow ourselves to be bombarded with views from so-called ‘experts’. We should mainly view our daily life not in terms of how ‘busy’ I am and how great I am at managing ‘my time’. No, instead, I believe, we should adopt a more important paradigm/philosophy as more paramount and start a revolution to become better managers of our energy.
What is more important than becoming better at time management – it is becoming better at ‘energy management’ which brings you closer to managing your ‘vitality’ or ‘charge’ or ‘life-force’ within you. To do this, you need to find your ‘re-charge point’, your place of serenity. I find mine in the gym. Some may find it in the garden. Others spending time crocheting or with their cars. Those of you who have something, hang on to it. Those of you who don’t, it is imperative for your life, to find it and start re-charging. All things need re-charging. If your mobile phone and computer need it. So do you, my friend!
Everything in your life, either adds to or steals from your vitality, your life force. Be aware of this, diligently.
I once read that if you love life, life will love you back.
You see, I have seen them, so perhaps have you.
People who love life, with bright eyes, taut skins and great smiles. They look as if they have been freshly scrubbed or newly minted, exuding the very definition of Vitality.
How do they do it?
Partly through respect for their bodies, spirit, thoughts and deeds.
You see, Vitality, does not seem to be as objective as weight, exercise, diet etc. It is more subjective. It seems to come from within and rather intrinsic rather than achieved through outwardly efforts(extrinsic).
When you find one of these people with that glow, ask them their secret. Then, contact me please, and tell me all about it.
If a few readers of this blog do this, we might be able to deduce the magic formula worth more than a rainbow’s pot of gold.
Become part of that search, today.
Best of vitality to you!
Until next time …
