Beware excuses!

Wellness is something we work on for our whole life. If we have developed good habits, it does not SEEM like work, but it is an ongoing process. Physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness require continuous effort, though if we are doing it right we will not even notice the effort involved. Sometimes it is focused ... Read More

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

Focusing on the small things

In a holistic view of health, self-improvement is not just about what we do for ourselves, but what we do in general. Our activity plays a role in all levels of our health. Physical activities obviously will have a direct effect on our physical fitness, but they will also influence our general emotional and even ... Read More

Patience is a … necessity

Knowing our weaknesses is as important as knowing our strengths. It is as easy to be blind to those things that hold us back as it is to create unnecessary limits on our own progress.

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

Try the mirror first #1000Speak

It is awe-inspiring how many problems we have with others stem from our own self-image. It does not help that, especially in this day and age of constant information overload … even in the so-called backwaters of the world, we are bombarded with OTHER people’s expectations of how WE should be. This affects not only ... Read More

Changing directions

When I first started this blog, it was an after effect of getting myself into shape to hike the Appalachian Trail. I needed to get myself fit, and also figure out ways to fund the effort. I found the BeachBody products, which are definitely fitness oriented, and do provide the POTENTIAL for money. Unfortunately, to ... Read More
