Boundless + Whole: My Mission.
I see you and me, boundless and whole, in heart and body and soul.
You might be wondering… What does that quote on the home page mean? I’m glad you asked.
I’ve struggled with being healthy and feeling strong in those three areas.
- In my heart, in regard to my spiritual health and faith.
- In my body, when it comes to how I treat my body and my physical circumstances.
- In my soul, meaning my emotional health and bouts with anxiety and depression.
I deeply care about all of these areas and truly believe you can’t thrive if one or more (or all) of these areas are lacking in some way.
- In order to live a life of faith, we need to be built up and strive for wellness in our bodies.
- In order to live a healthy lifestyle, we must change the way we think about ourselves.
- In order to live emotionally well, we have to put our faith in something bigger than ourselves.
Heart. Body. Soul.
It’s a cycle. You can’t have one without the other and they’re all dependent on each other.
I think sometimes, it’s easy to go overboard in one area and completely neglect the others.
Last year, I wrote a post about feeling boundless.
Ever since then, that word has just been sticky against my heart.
This is my relentless pursuit of boundless.
I want to remind all of us, myself included, that we are not lacking and not limited. That we are boundless and whole.
I believe in life with the windows down. You know that feeling? When you’re driving and the sun is just right and the windows go down and the music is up and suddenly you feel like anything is possible? Like you could take the world and succeed?
I want to cultivate that in my life. I want to operate from that place.
The place without walls. Without borders.
If I’m being completely honest, I don’t know what exactly all that means. There is no perfectly composed plan of where I’m going and what end goal that one simple statement is supposed to produce.
I’m totally winging it most of the time, and I’m learning to be okay with that.
I want to be open about the journey. I want to create space to talk about things that matter. I want us to be built up, healthy in all the ways, so we can create good and be good in the world.
I want to share some of my health journey, what I’m doing to get my finances in order, how I'm setting myself up for success. I want to talk about depression and anxiety and mental health. I want to share about how I see God moving in me and in people and in the world.
I hope to write my way through this process of pursuing health in all areas of life. To know what it means to live boundlessly. To understand that we are not limited by or lacking anything.
I want to share boundlessly with you. To be wholly honest, wholly broken, wholly myself. I hope it encourages you to do the same. I hope we can be people that connect to each other, that connect to ourselves and to our purpose, that connect to that wild, boundless thing inside of us.
I see you and me boundless and whole in heart and body and soul.
So here are my questions to you:
