Relationships are a necessary to be a healthy human being. Ironically they can limit our grow and make us feel handcuffed instead of enhanced. Balance is the key. The right balance is personal for each one of us. Prison for one is heaven for another. Be true to how you feel. There is always an escape route if you need it you just have to look.

Not surprised that I was approached by a women who was not yet 30 and divorced. She is a personal trainer, motivated and beautiful! She said, “I am in such a tough spot right now, how do I transition!” We face challenges in all phases of our lives. Taking the first step is the toughest because it makes many things apparent that we would rather turn from. Hang-in there and I will support you in your desire for a new life experience.

When you finally get what you want, the thought of facing this new challenge can be paralyzing. After the dust clears reflect on your struggle to reach your goal and on the goal itself. Do not move past this step until you push yourself to appreciate what a great accomplishment you have achieved. After that time you will be ready to take on your new life challenge and be successful.

Good Luck!

A fresh start is always inspirational! Love this!

Color it elicits a personal feeling in each of us.  The same color has different meaning to each individual.  Did your mom wear sky blue.  Does the color make you sad or bring back fond memories?

If you have embarked on a life journey consider the colors in your world and how they can inspire you.  Red makes me determined while green relaxes me.  If there a color in your life that inspires you? Put it at the fore front of your life and use it to keep your journey moving!

Good health equals successful adaptation. This is a unique formula for each individual. Ask your self what is your adaptation formula?

Is it healthy eating, rest, and physical exercise? The absolute joy of discovering how to adapt your way to a healthier you is that it is yours to create!  My suggestion for the new year would be to sit down at the kitchen table and write your unique Plan B.  I have mentioned it in earlier blogs. Plan B equals your optimal life under stress.

Have a fabulous New Year!

When your life takes a left turn be ready to adapt to the situation with a plan B.

Plan A is when life is humming along at an optimum level.  You are finishing your day crossing all items off of your list.  Meeting your own expectations of how your day was supposed to map.

When life gets in the way and plan A is not possible, you will avoid high anxiety related to feelings of not measuring-up by preparing an alternative. What it looks like is up to you. Perhaps it is reducing your workout from 6 days weekly to 4. Getting to bed 30 minutes earlier and eating more veggies and lean meat.  Plan B will keep you moving and content with your journey!

Making a resolution is a healthy practice.  But to enhance your life in 2015 a call to action is a must. Be thoughtful and courageous as 2015 approaches when you pen your resolutions. Make it a short list of life goals so it is manageable and sustainable.  Most importantly, smile, laugh a lot, and have fun on your journey to an enhanced life!

Once you initiate your call to action you can’t take it back. Throw it out into the universe after a well thought out goal setting session and you can’t pull it back and still be true to yourself.  You changed your mind?? Too bad you now have to fearlessly manage the consequences of your action no matter the response.  Be fearless and unafraid and you will live the life you were meant to live.
