I haven't been blogging, but thinking that getting some of these feeling out that are holding me back would be a good thing.
In coming back to SP after being seriously ill, I felt it would be a positive, interactive, and action-oriented environment to 'find myself in.' Since then I have been experimenting with teams trying to find caring, interactive people with common interests. I feel we have a wealth of talent and information here, but have to settle in to the teams that will serve us best.
Iam at a crossroads. Serious illness, as most of you know, leaves you with the reality of life. The knowledge that what we put in our mouth and what we do to our bodies has consequences. If we really do want to make changes, we need a plan. It is either, make a plan and take action, or do nothing and fade into bad health and accepting much less out of life. What i frightening is the hard work it takes. It is every day. The good thing, is it is flexible and forgiving. If we just try, each day is a new opportunity to get it right.
I choose to participate. I choose to continue to learn, to try new things. I will not give up. First things first, what are my objectives: to make healthy food choices, to move my body in exercise and give expression to my creative side.
I'm thinking of commiting to a June challenge of exercising, interval walking and some strength training,plus eating healthy food choices. This is needed and I can do it.
I'm excited about the friends I will meet along the way and what can be accomplished, particularly if we work together. I know that choosing good health is not the easy way, but I know that any other choice brings negativity and illness later on that is far worse.
I chooe to accept the challenge. I know that there are others who are serious about their commitment. I will find them and we will combine forces and win.
Life is too precious to do otherwise.
Everyone who comes to SP meets the point of the crossroads, which way will you go? Toward Hope or give up and age miserably?
What a gift.....we are at choice.
