Challenging myself … challenging YOU!

My last post was about how changing the little things in the daily routine may be significant in producing a healthy lifestyle. Healthy habits are the key to positive growth. This applies to improving ourselves, physically, emotionally AND spiritually. However, as important as creating these small habitual changes may be, we still have to take ... Read More

A challenge #22KILL

Everyone faces challenges as we move forward in life. These challenges will take many forms, sometimes physical, sometimes mental, maybe even spiritual …  whatever form they take, we need to face them if we wish to continue to grow. We cannot compare our challenges to that of others, for we do not walk the same ... Read More

Returning to self

A healthy life is ultimately about finding balance. No matter what aspect of life we are discussing, we will find that the too much of something can be as harmful to our well-being as too little. In both cases we will find that something necessary to our holistic health is neglected, often without ourselves even being aware ... Read More

Maybe I should re-introduce myself …

Much has changed in my life since I first introduced myself and this project. I am updating the site so it is more current to who I am today. It seems appropriate to modify my self-introduction as well. So here is the new and improved “Who the hell am I?”: If you are here on ... Read More

This is really true of ANY giving personality. We tend to place others before ourselves, to our own detriment. And this can be a very hard ... Read More

Touching base

I first started this project for two primary reasons. One, because I know the value of taking care of ourselves on all levels, and also know how easy it is to let that slide. Especially for those of us who have a tendency to put others first. Add to that inundation of marketing and the ... Read More

A shift in focus

I have always understood the value of a healthy lifestyle … maybe more so when I was not living one. Usually when I slip away from one is in the darker times of my life, which is not really so unusual. Self-abuse … even passive aggressive self-abuse … is not uncommon when we are unhappy ...

What am I doing here?

I realize I have been very quiet here lately … a sure way to chase away the few people who might be interested in this little project.  The truth is that I have been have a crisis of faith. Faith in myself; faith in my motives. The first step to making ANY project work is ... Read More
