JUST: A four letter word

I have already overcome so very much in my journey towards being healthy. So far most of the work has been emotional and mental. I've learned the skills to manage both which means I now have some control over my choices, actions, and reactions.

With this new found control, I am able to apply the same skills to my physical health.

I have already overcome so very much in my journey towards being healthy. So far most of the work has been emotional and mental. I've learned the skills to manage both which means I now have some control over my choices, actions, and reactions.

With this new found control, I am able to apply the same skills to my physical health.

This journal, blog, page, whatever you call it is devoted to my journey and the discovery of the hidden subtext of the word "JUST"... as in "just get off your ass and do it" or "Just pull your socks up", etc

Just is a four letter word which other than when it means "fairness" is actually a contraction - it is a short cut word used to imply instructions... instructions every one assumes every one already knows.

When I started my healing & health journey three years ago (May 18th, 2009) I didn't have a clue. I've since begun to learn the skills and other instructions implied by the word JUST... this is my journey from Mar 8th, 2012 forward).
