I’m sure by now that you are all aware that this is a health/wellness blog. In case this is your first time visiting I want to point out that I too am on my own health journey.
Some questions that have come from starting this blog include, “What did you do to start getting healthy?” “How did you manage to get started?”
That is the one question that I can answer in three words.
I JUST… STARTED.
I simply began. I literally grabbed my sneakers and went on a run. It hurt like hell and I thought my knees were going to give out the whole time, but I still did it. I am not a fitness guru, I have failed and that makes me human. I understand how hard it can be to get started or to have failed and have to start again. In this post I am mostly referring to health and fitness, however, it can be carried over to a number of things.
It could be conquering a new skill, like playing the guitar.
Or creating something new that you can share with others.
No matter what it is, you have to take that step to START.
After you achieve certain goals, you realize that choosing to start becomes a daily choice. After the initiative is there, you have to decide what is the purpose of starting?
For me in terms of health, it is not a diet, but a lifestyle. Not for him or for her, but for me. Not for a day, but every single day. Not to feel good in skinny jeans, but to feel good in my skin. Not for the beach, but for my mind. Not to compete with anyone, but to compete with myself to become the best version of myself. Every single day.
That is why I choose to start. The beauty is that it is never too late to get going and if you fail, you can start again. Have faith and believe in the power of beginnings.
