As the summer heat of Central Illinois appears to be in full force… I am also reminded each year at this time that I am getting older, culminated by my early June Birthday. A day in the modern of social media, is not an easy day to forget. Its also another opportunity to reflect on your achievements from this past year, and if like most folks, some of your short comings. I think about all the things that have occurred in my life, the changes that have taken shape, and realize that there will never be an easy button. If you plan to keep moving forward and evolving you have to be willing to “Accept the Challenge”.
- To understand what things work, and what things really do not work and become debilitating in my overall pursuit of happiness.
- To understand that the definition of healthy is not equated to what we may think it is based on the social norms. (I.E. Healthy != Skinny) Healthy is about feeling good about one’s self.
- To realize that living an active life is essential and long term. The need to find other ways beside hitting a gym 24X7 is a way of engaging in healthy practices to help achieve my goals is a more sustainable “healthy” approach
Continuously to review and evaluate your journey… Continuously reaffirm “the challenge” to become the better you that you desire to be. Continue to live life as we all know it’s not always guaranteed!
