Waking Up To My Purpose

Lately I’ve had the feeling that I’ve been sleep walking through most of my life. Just going through the motions with no real purpose. Every job I had had no purpose other than to pay the bills and keep a roof over my head. Sure, those things are important. But is that all there is to life. Get up, go to work to pay the bills. Go to bed. Maybe the odd vacation to give you a bit of fun. Then rinse and repeat. None of those jobs gave me any sense of satisfaction. None of those jobs were rewarding or enabled me to make a difference in someone else’s life.

This has all changed now.

The last few years have been a journey. I’ve been through weight gain and weight loss. I’ve been blessed to have been able to reverse type 2 diabetes…Something I’d heard about for years but never truly believed I could do. I nearly went blind. Thank God cataract surgery is so simple now.

I went through all this for a reason. This is the moment I have woken up to my Purpose. I went through all this so I could show others what is possible. There are so many people out there who are hurting, physically and emotionally. This is why I share my journey so much. To give HOPE to those who need it.

I may never know who’s life I touch. Who may begin their own journey to better health. Because good health is more valuable than money. And if I AM making a difference to others, then everything I went through was worth it.

This is why I share my story so much.

This is my PURPOSE. move mountains

The Power Of Self Talk

self talk

We can often be our own worst enemy. We talk to ourselves in a way we wouldn’t dream of talking to anyone else. The problem is we are aware of our flaws. And sometimes we focus on those flaws so much we neglect to see the good that is in us. This gives rise to negative self talk.

I know I have been guilty of this in the past. And I know I’m not alone. I have been on a journey over the past few years. And I know my journey isn’t over yet. In fact I believe my journey is about to take a new direction. I intend to be a force of positivity and hope.

I will be posting more about this in the future. Sometimes it seems as if the world is going through a dark phase.

Each of us can choose to make a difference by committing to random acts of kindness. Even if it’s just smiling at a stranger. You don’t know what personal battle that person is fighting. Sometimes something as simple as a smile can brighten someone’s day. And it costs nothing. Let’s make this world a better place to live in.

I Like Who I Am Becoming…A Lot

I feel like I’m on a journey. Every year there seems to be something new.  It started when I got interested in writing.

Then I developed a passion for classical music.

I gave up eating meat.

I became more spiritual.

I started my health and weight loss journey, losing 70 lbs in the process and getting off diabetes medication.

I became more interested in mindset and how it relates to health and happiness.

I started volunteering and have more of a service mindset now.

All this has happened in the last 9 or 10 years.

Recently, I have felt drawn to Paris, even though sadly I have never visited, even when I lived in England.  I am now trying to learn French.

I feel my journey isn’t over yet.

I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!

I don’t know who I’m going to be at the end…but I really like who I have become!

Life is a journey. Enjoy the ride!
