I bet most of you can relate. You go to work, you come home, you care for your kids or your pets, your parents, your spouse, etc., etc., etc.)… and you lather, rinse, repeat. Day after day. That focus on keeping things rolling on the home and job front means that other things that you love take a back seat. That’s certainly true for me. And it’s certainly true for the vast majority of my friends and loved ones.
But, the past year and a bit has been a time where I decided to make changes – some were forced on me. Some were my own choices. I decided that it was time to make room for me in my life. I read a book by a pretty fantastic woman – Shonda Rhimes. Her words inspired me to live my own year of yes.
So, I travelled solo to local wine counties because I adore a good Ontario red. I ran a marathon because it seemed like a good idea at the time (spoiler alert. It totally was a good idea. I’m doing it again!). I’m planning a big solo trip in the fall.
But best of all, I joined an online health and fitness accountability group with an awesome online coach and got in the best shape of my life. I saw so many positive changes, I signed up to help others accomplish their health and fitness goals.
Finally, I decided to restart my blog – with a different focus – for two reasons:
- I love to write. Words make me happy
- I want to inspire you, dear readers. I want to help you get on your own health and wellness path. I want you to commit to, well, you
I’m going to talk about my journey. I’m going to talk about how you can start working on your own health, fitness, and wellness journey because self-care is important.
The old adage says you can’t pour from an empty cup. Yet, most of us are doing exactly that. We don’t sleep enough, we work more than we likely should, and very few of us take all our vacation days. Let’s work together to find something better for ourselves.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited about the road ahead. Let’s travel it together.
