Call them “my whys, “my values, or just the 3 F’s. Nonetheless, I go on throughout life with these three pillars in place. They are the set structure that helps me trek forward through my existence. Although people value different things, taking these three pillars into account will provide purposeful clarity, discernment, and guidance to simply be.
First off, my Faith. Being a man of God renders my external duty as a human being, my cause for good principle. There is something real humbling in knowing that there is something bigger/higher than you and me in the grand scheme of things. Things “just are” and happen the way they do because of it. Absolute love, truth, meaning, and grace are obtained through this hope in spirituality. Becoming a moral and ethical being starts with the intent of emulating the divine despite hardships. My life is foundational around the Lord and my Faith.
Second, my family. With this, I’m not only talking about my immediate family. I do it for those who have changed my life for the better. My immediate family, my romantic partnership, and those friends who reciprocate and provide so much. It’s spectacular to realize that it’s almost as though those are the ones who seem to be actual blood relatives. Those who deliver unconditional acceptance and loyalty when needed. These people are gained and lost alongside this wonderful journey of life. Without family and these relationships, there would not be much connection and belonging to be had. All the relationships, all the people who had an impact on the trajectory of my life for the better ARE considered family.
Thirdly, my fitness. For me, it is not just about the exercising aspect. The definition of fitness I see for my life is everyday health and wellbeing. This includes all states of the spectrum, both physiological and psychological. If this is not in alignment, then longevity is out of the question. Not much can be achieved if this portion of living is not prioritized, especially with the proper nutrition and active lifestyle. There is only a focus on fixing one thing if you are unhealthy. Understandably so, you never want to be the richest man in the graveyard. Therefore, taking care of one’s health is of the utmost priority and should never be neglected.
