What's the best that can happen?

Friday, May 22rd
Today I am grateful for the choice I made to act last year. To try something unlike anything I had ever done before in my life was a major step in the right direction for a healthier, happier me.
1432351905862 That choice has led to many other choices as I learn more about this new lifestyle of nutrition and exercise.  Little things add up to make a big difference.
I know all the excuses.  I used them all for years.
It came down to the fact that I could stay the same or I could change.
Both are equally difficult.  Both require energy.  Both can be painful.
Only one shows strength.  Only one demonstrates courage.  Only one exhibits hope.
It's an individual choice to begin.  However, along the way, a support system begins to grow and one day you see that you are no longer doing this on your own.  The encouragement, the motivation you need shows up in many ways, from many sources that you never saw coming.  And, it's awesome.  Really, really awesome.
Go outside your comfort zone.
Be intentional.
Do something different.
When you do, you are going to see some of the best that can happen to your life.


  1. I am so proud of you and what you've become. Now I just need to get (back) off the excuse train and start taking better care of myself (again).

    1. Thank you, Karen...words of encouragement like yours keep me going.
