What's your story?

Thursday, August 01, 2013

What's your story? Everyone is going to have a different story -- we are all unique & we've all had different life experiences. Sometimes our story is not-so-great, or we don't like where it's heading. But the cool thing is that we can start today & rewrite the ending!! How cool is that?!?

The choice is yours. Which path will you choose?

Me? I'm choosing the path that leads me to this swimming pool in Turks & Caicos (in the Caribbean) in May 2014!! I would emoticon to be at goal by then, or at least close. I have this photo as my computer background at home & hanging in my cube at work as a constant reminder of my goal.

So, what's your story? emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm rewriting as fast as I can. I'm 62 now, and hope to be at goal, and a whole lot healthier, by the time I turn 65...or a lot sooner if possible.

    My mom was in a wheelchair because of Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I've had Fibromyalgia for as long as I can remember...and I plan to fight it's effects as long as I live!

    My story is a good one (mentioned on my heading on page) ........... I am enjoying excellent health and still very active and working full time in an amazing Orthopedic clinic ................ in spite of a Dr. telling me when I was in my 20's that I would be crippled and wheel chair bound! .................. That was 'before' people spoke up ........ but I did to his face and said, "Well you are WRONG and I will not!!!" ............. I reached over 1500 fitness minutes in July and started Aug 1 w/ one hour! ............ I do not make excuses ............ exercise and the ability for me to take my body and health is noting short of a mircacle ........... a Blessing from above for sure and sheer determination to have a good and fulfilling life and I do ......................... so I am happy and blessed!
    How emoticon you have such a wonderful place to look forward to going!! ............... Hooray for you!!! ............ and I am sure WELL deserved!!!

    I have several medical problems and by losing weight and eating healthy, I'm sure they will improve. Thanks for sharing.

    My story is that I've had many medical problems in my life starting with my first operation at 5 years old. My family always treated me like I was a fragile flower but I'm going to prove to them and myself that I am not. I am choosing the path that will lead to whatever adventure I want to take. emoticon

    My story is rewriting the habits that I formed when I was younger, so that I can pass along health and wellness, proper nutrition and the importance of exercise to my future family. I want it for them, to be as natural as breathing. Thanks for sharing! 2014 or bust!

    Can't wait to see a picture of you (at goal) sitting in that very spot!!!

    Yes... everyone has a story. Even the pain and the adversity can add richness and interest to our personal "book of life"--
    The vacation plan sounds wonderful, and I am another voice that says, "take me too"... Ha.
    Many years ago I enjoyed travel, and I was fortunate to visit other countries. Funny incidents happen to foreigners. Once I ordered beef at a restaurant in Europe and was served "beef tongue"..... Ohhh My!!

    Though we cannot change our past life "chapters"--we can do our best to make the rest of our story happy and healthy.

    Thanks for this message!

    If I could get away with it, my story would be sneaking into your suitcase when you go to Turks and Caicos, lol.

    Mine's a new love story - having been widowed, I'm hooking up with a guy in Peru. We're finding that it's a long and costly process to bring things about. Yet we share the same goal/vision/dream to be able to establish a work there (after he comes here for a time to work and save with me) to help the destitute, feeding the body with a nutritious meal, feeding the soul with a useful skill, and feeding the spirit with the Word of God.
    And it would help to get this body in better shape! emoticon Shel

    Beautiful photo to inspire you as well as make you look forward to your trip! Great idea! My newest inspiration (has been for several months now) is to be as fit as I can be for our trip to Alaska in three weeks.This is my husbands dream trip and I want to be able to hike and see whatever sights my husband wants to. And I must admit, I'm pretty excited about the trip myself! lol!

    For something I'm working on, I just wrote my "Life Map" ... the major events that have happened in my life. What's formed me. The exercise continues to go back and look for the emotions and highlight specific ones with different color pens. It's amazing! I'm learning so much about me. What a wonderful journey!

    I'm wishing you glorious success on your way to goal by your vacation 2014!!! I know you can do it!!! I believe in you!!
