Long Lines and Valentines

Updated: Feb 16, 2023

- LeNae Goolsby

I took my boys to the mall after school today to go to GameStop. On the way to that shop we passed by Pandora - are you familiar? They sell the cute little collectible charms - I have quite the collection myself, gifted to me over the years from my boys.

There was a line outside the door of Pandora, the likes of which I have not seen since the pandemic. I could not for the life of me understand why all of these people were willing to wait to get into that store, and then I realized that Valentine's Day is upon us. Kudos to those people (mostly men) willing to wait in such a long line to acquire a memento of their adoration for their adored. I couldn't also help but wonder, however, how many people actually also take the time to show themselves a little self-love. I'm not talking about shopping for the self, although why not, if that's something that makes one feel self-adored, self-appreciated? When is the last time you looked in the mirror and really appreciated yourself? Acknowledged - like literally out loud verbally acknowledged yourself for everything you do? Or, blessed your body for being the miraculous vessel that it is? Or, when is the last time you honored yourself by being in quiet contemplation of the beautiful infinite soul that you are? What would happen if you do just one of those things right now? Go ahead, take all the time that you need, you deserve it. That reminds of Jennifer...

Jennifer is a professional working mother in her mid-forties who is the life of the party. She works hard and she plays harder, if you know what I mean. One day, Jennifer realized that she had been sacrificing so much for her career, for her family, and her friends, from her time, to her energy, to her health. She'd put on over 40 pounds in the previous two years, and her go to crash diet strategy and workout regimens weren't working like they used to. Plus, she started to notice that she was fatigued, but plagued by insomnia, and work related stress seemed to be more taxing on her than in previous years. She expressed her concerns to her family doctor, who, she felt shrugged her off, and just gave her yet another antidepressant to try. Intuitively Jennifer knew that bottle of pills was not the answer she was looking for; luckily she found us at Infinite Health. When she came in, Jennifer had decided that this year was, in the words of Shonda Rhimes, her "Year of Yes." For Jennifer, this meant doing what she needed to do put herself, and her health first, finally. Her husband confessed to me that he was glad she was finally doing something for herself. In just two months after signing up for the Infinite Health VIP program, Jennifer reported feeling better, sleeping better, and she'd lost 12 pounds. By her sixth month, Jennifer was once again comfortable in her body, feeling more energetic, and her state of mind and overall outlook on life was equipped to mitigate any stressors she faced in her career. Jennifer chose to love herself, to step up for herself, and in doing so was better able to really give and love others the way she really wanted to.
