Leading by Example

It’s been so long since posting anything new.  In the last year a lot life changed occurred, and the entire time this blog has been lingering in my mind.  I’ve almost posted a gazillion different time, but something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on was holding me back.  One of my favorite authors, Debbie Ford, might respond to that comment by asking, “well if you did know what was holding you backs what would it be?”  So right now my answer to her is, time, stress, school, commuting, meeting the expectations of 400 other people, etc, etc, etc, and being ashamed for going so long without posting.  I wondered if I would actually have anything profound to say while in survival mode – 19 credit hours, 8-10 hours commuting each week, working as a personal trainer and trying to spend some time with my family and friends.  I didn’t even fit into my own schedule.

I know I’m not the only one who has been in this state.  The causes of survival mode craziness may be different for each person, but certainly you can or have related to that feeling at one time in you rife.  In fact it is one of the primary reasons that people don’t eat well, stay active or take care of themselves.  We’re all too busy doing other things and taking care of other people that we never make it to the top of our own priority list.

So here I am still busy, but ready to shed the Super Woman cape and admit that I cannot always do it all all the time.  Since I love reading things that are interesting and relative to me, since I love cooking, eating and anything related to food and since I love staying really active, I’m going to redirect my efforts with future blog posts to demonstrate how happy, healthy and active are attainable even in the midst of chaos.  I’d like to keep it simple, just leading by example.
