Your Life and Your Health Part 6

Hi,

I know in the last part of your life and your health I promised to reveal more about who I am and so on.

But, I ran across something that is more powerful and supports what these last few posts have been about.

It is about Elle Swan, who is now an international speaker, author and coach. 

But, it wasn’t always that way for Elle.  Before she got to that stage she was overweight, overweight, had no money and was a drug addict.  It got so bad for Elle that she overdosed  and thought she died.

But she didn’t and from that lowest of low points she started making the good habits, the good decisions.

Remember our original quote that got me started on this journey?  Good times breed bad habits and bad times breed good habits. 

That does not mean it is easy to overcome all the bad habits that have accumulated over the years.  No, it is actually very hard to overcome in many cases.

Elle, in her own words, says she stumbled more than stepped on her path to empowerment.

But, she had the courage to face herself, to stop blaming others and circumstances for her problems. 

It is only by looking within and finding yourself and who you want to be, that you can start to overcome the bad habits you have accumulated over a lifetime.  That is your foundation for taking the steps you need to take.

If you have been overweight or obese or terribly out of shape for a long period of time, it is only by looking at yourself and seeing yourself as you really are that you can begin to change.

You can have a gymnastic type of body.  You can be healthy and strong. You can be vibrant and filled with energy. 

But, do not believe all the BS hype out there about how easy it will be.  It will not be easy.  There will be times when you struggle.  There will be times when you want to give up.  There will be times when you say I don’t have time for this. 

There are ways to overcome all of these issues.  And the next post of your life and your health we will talk about them.  Along with – who the heck am I – I promise:-)
