Inspirations for Life! HELP!?

By Deb Powell,

Happy New Year!!!

Well… we made it through another Christmas season! Although it’s a new year according to the world’s calendar, I consider my birthday my new year. But whatever it is to you, today is the first day of the rest of your life, make it count!

We can attempt great things, just like when this bee was swimming in a pond. It was going in circles and couldn’t fly out of the water. I pushed a big stick out towards it and it climbed on. It rested for a bit, then launched itself into the air. There are many things we can’t do alone and this is why I’m here, to help and support you in your journey.

I’m challenging myself to be healthy. I want to prove to myself (and others) I can be healthy! But, like the bee, I can’t do it alone. I need guidance, resources, and support.

I’m wondering why I haven’t had much feedback on these articles…

Do you think:

  • You’re afraid to change your diet?
  • You don’t need inspiration?
  • You’re already too unhealthy?
  • It’s too late to change?

Whatever it is, I hope my journey and encouragement are helping you even if you don’t contact me. Wherever you’re at, it’s ok. Major changes can be hard, and scary. Start simple, do your research, be brave towards your friends and family. You are the only one who can control your health. No one can do it for you, only with you.

If you would like inspiration or encouragement for other challenges besides health and diet, let me know.

Update… I still haven’t lost any more weight, but I’m feeling great, and I’ve added dancers’ exercises to my Pilates and Qigong. They all make me feel so invigorated! Care to join me?

Remember, a healthy planet starts with us!

Join me next month in my journey and for more inspiration!
