I’ve decided 2016 is going to be my year, my year to help people achieve. No, it wasn’t that I set myself some crazy new year’s resolutions and had to commit to following through with them. To be honest, it was that I took a look back over the last 5+ years of my life and realised how far I’d come. Yes, I have a journey, like a lot of people, to some it might not be exciting, but to others its shows personal strength and what the mind and body is capable of.
You see, I’ve lost weight, and I’ve put weight on, and then lost it again. Its not lost, like I’m looking for it, its lost like, I said, good riddance when it ‘disappeared’.
With the ‘losing’ of weight, I’ve gained both physical and mental strength and I can say, with conviction, that I’m not going looking for the ‘lost’ weight any time soon…. With the loss though, came so many gains. I’ve gained so many things, including health, muscles, confidence, friends, and new experiences – some I continue to use, others I would rather forget – like when I fell off my bike during an enticer triathlon….FYI after a few cracks, I’ve decided triathlon isn’t my sport, though I did try!
So, while you could say I wasn’t enticed by triathlon, I wasn’t discouraged either, I’ve just shifted my focus, to being the best version of myself. I know that’s a bit cliche’, not sure whose line it was first, but I want to be someone my boys look up to. Yes, I’m a Mum to two handsome and boisterous boys, and I must say they are part of many of my reasons for making sustainable lifestyle changes. I’m also a wife, I’ve been lucky enough to be with my awesome husband for almost 10 years now, wow, that makes me feel a little old! He too, has a journey, but I don’t have his permission to share, so that is for a future blog. The other main hat I fashion is that I’m a Registered Nurse, I wouldn’t say it defines me, but certainly has presented some interesting life experiences since I graduated 13 years ago!! As we all do, there are other titles I hold dear, though, it wouldn’t leave much to talk about if I spilled them all now, would it?!
So I invite you to join me, join my blog and find out about the cultivating that has gone on since the start of this journey I speak of! I look forward to sharing and perhaps even helping you achieve!
Bring on 2016!!
