ONWARD AND UPWARD ~ Who's Counting on me to be my Healthiest

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

While working with my coaching program this morning my motivational picture caused me to stop and ponder.

I don't have a spouse anymore who depends upon me, son and family are across the nation living their own lives and are not dependent upon me. Who is counting on me? That's a good question.

I do have people that have stated they look up to me. Yeh, I'm still pondering their statement. I have those who say I have to stick around and can't leave this world with out them, and since I've started targeting those areas of my life which weigh me down, my friends also have started taking charge of their bodies to take off the excess and unwanted weight and living healthier; some even drastically so with Bariatric surgery.

We do make impacts on other people's lives with how we live our life. I want to make an impact on others that will spur them towards healthy improvements towards the benefits of joy, better endurance and physical strength that enhances their lives, but not solely physical; I'm interested in them as whole people which includes their mind, emotions and spirit.

Who's counting on me? I've discovered there are quite a few people who look to me as a guide in their lives. Maybe when I figure out the why to that, I can be a better me, but for now I not only have a responsibility to them, I have a responsibility to myself to continue working towards a healthier me.

Who's counting on you to be your healthiest?

Here's Sparkin' with you

Have a great day!

    You have the long and the short of it! You are counting on you to be your healthiest to live your life better, and your friends are counting on you to take care of yourself to be in their lives for as long as you can. We are all responsible one to another even if sometimes we can't see it, and you never know who's life will be the better or changed for the good for you having been in it, even for a brief period. emoticon realizations!

    Nobody's counting on me, either. I do it for myself.
