Good Mood Food

Children fed unbalanced diet end up with consequences of whatever’s been deficient. Kwashiorkor, stunted growth, visual impairment, behavioual disorders, learning difficultues, lethargy and skin problems are a fraction of concerns noted to stem from an unhealthy diet.

Emotional diet presents much the same. Children fed healthy words of life grow differently emotionally, from those fed harsh, aggressive or abusive words. Some children are fed a mix of good and bad emotional meals.

Vitamins and trace elements are an important part of a balanced diet. Overprocessed food or healthy options excessively coated with sugar and sweeteners can be very damaging too. Vitamins like discipline may not be tasty but much needed. Well presented it is accepted like telling off with a tone of love or anger in desperation to protect in contrast to frustration from other cares.

We are what we eat, physically, mentally and emotionally.

A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stirs up anger.

A child’s emotional growth could be stunted due to emotional malnutrition or toxins infused in earlier years. The symptoms of anger, insensitivity, aggression, to name a few, may be a consequence of poor emotional diet.

What kind of emotional diet am I feeding my children? Soft words or harsh words? Aggression or kindness? Vitamins of bitter truth or sugary deception for temporary calm? What kind of emotional growth is desired…keeping the longer term in mind? What children are fed plays a significant part in what they become physically, spiritually and emotionally.

It looked like the perfect dream, living on acres of lush green pastures, evening walks on the farm inhaling fresh clean air, watching sunrise and sunset untainted with man's interference! The scenes started to change like a movie fast forwarded and precious moments seemed uncaptured till quickly gone, never to return. I started learning to cherish life, the greatest gift above all things! I needed more, so I sought the source and got to know it came from Love and with it was always freedom! The rapidly changing scenes, with years speeding by, have been stormy and sometimes still, bright and grey, with highs and low! I have found meaningful living is not determined by circumstances, but rather by what goes on within. The fuel in the heart powers the body, its activities and interactions. Love gives life and powers living. Embracing freedom enables meaningful living and beautiful expressions of life. I remain passionate about a journey with life, love and liberty and hopefully encouraging others to do the same, living purposefully and leading in love by liberty. #LoveLifeLiberty
