We are starting this journey today, which really excites me! Mostly because I hit the farmers market this am & I'll be cooking for the week tomorrow, two things I love. Let's get a few ground rules on the table so you know exactly where I'm coming from.
1. I'm not aiming for perfection. I choose June to do this project because our lives will be all over the place. We are doing some travelling next weekend, I'm going away for a weekend without my family, at the end of the month I'll be partying with some friends.... this is life for most of you too. We are all over the place and it can be tricky to make healthy choices. For me, making healthy choices = feeling good. For me, true wellness = joy. For me, the reward for making courageously healthy choices is a consistently happy me. When I'm feeling happy, I can celebrate living.
2. I'm going to be transparent about my struggles along the way. We all struggle. Maintaining ANYTHING takes attention, thought and support. I have made choices over the past ten or so years that have changed the way I live my life and the way that I see the world. Shifting my lifestyle (slowly over the years) has brought on a health transformation! I've created the Courageously Healthy Living System based on what has worked for me, and It's what I use with my clients as well.
3. I'd be honored to have your input. When you see something you like, don't like, have questions about- reach out and share. Just as you may learn from me, I will learn from you. Others may learn from you. That is where the magic happens. So share, share, share.
This is the most import one...
4. Reach for the stars, but make sure they are your own stars in YOUR OWN SKY. In other words, make your goals realistic. I've been experimenting with caring for myself and changing my life for a while. If you are just starting out... be where YOU Are. Not where I am. Look at your life (with kind eyes, please don't let those mean voices in your head tell you that you aren't ready for this- you are!) from where you are. Where you are is information that will help you make the choices you need to make. What are the truths in your life? What's in your way? What are you gonna do about it?!
I just want you to know that my main goal with my career (right now) is to be part of the solution. Lots of people don't feel very good. They aren't getting to live their lives fully and courageously. I'm where I am right now because I've learned that feeling good can have many labels. Feeling good long term is practiced and maintained. And I want to warn you that feeling good can lead to feeling amazing. It can lead you to a place in your life that you never thought you could reach!
I'm thrilled to be part of your solution. PLEASE keep me informed where you are and what is working for you. You completely rock.
