I don’t have a miracle health story or a single life-changing experience that led to this point in my life. In fact, I have worked really hard at my own health over the years, and that commitment to health and wellness intensified after I became a mom. I’m healthier and happier now than I ever have been.
In my career, my involvement in my community and my circle of friends, I have observed a common thread with the women I have in both my professional and personal life. Women, and especially moms, often put themselves last on their list of priorities. I see the repercussions every day of that conscious or unconscious choice. Tiredness. Weight gain or loss. Stress. Frustration. Lack of focus. Flagging energy.
When I ask women why they want to be healthy, their responses are invariably in the vein of wanting to be healthier for their kids or partner. I understand that. But, now in my life I recognize a clear resonating disconnect in those responses. I need to share something with you….
Quite simply, I want you to be healthy for YOU.
The rest will follow. That health and wellness that is attainable for you doesn’t come in a kit, a pill or a pretty little package that was gifted to you at birth. It’s a journey of discoveries and action. Health and Wellness is a life-long journey that is the accumulation of little steps you work on every single day.
Self Care is the goal and good choices in nourishment, movement and emotional well-being will get you there. These daily little steps engage your body in natural solutions that work with your body…. not on it or against it.
I also mentioned that I want to help you live a happier life. Authentic innate happiness doesn’t come in a pretty little package either. It’s not a ‘given’ in our lives. I’m not above material things that give my heart a flutter. Sometimes it’s a fresh new journal, a new set of pens, or a new dress. What I did struggle with for years though was finding a purpose that makes me want to jump out of bed in the morning and get to it. And THAT is where I believe true happiness can be found. Fulfilling your purpose in life.
Life’s journey lived consciously day by day is the framework for a life full of happiness and health. I know I am responsible for my choices in my journey and of course, some days I’m better at it than other days. But I hope by sharing my own path I inspire you to find your path to health and wellness and happiness. It will be our journey together.
