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

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

Healer, heal thyself!

Those who fall into the category of healer or caretaker often share one character “flaw”. They all to often forget to apply the same level of care to themselves.

’tis the season!

As much as many people might love this time of the year, it also happens to be one of the toughest times of years when it comes to fitness goals. Between social gatherings filled with all sorts of yummy but less than healthy foods, and the weather making routine exercise more difficult, and increased stress ... 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

Time to catch up!

As I think I may have mentioned along the way, I took a bit of a “vacation” that i just recently got back from. I am not sure one can truly call it a vacation when I don’t have a typical 9-5 life, but it was a change of scenery and a bit of refreshment ... Read More
