Welcome to my blog!
I’m new at this and its scary to be so open and feel so vulnerable. I’m one of the worst when it comes to sharing details about “my” personal life. I’m okay to chat about what I’m currently doing and who I hang out with (you know, all the fun stuffs). But, I’m careful when it’s time to share my deep thoughts, secrets or talk about my past. So, I usually keep to myself, especially when it comes to the things that I’d prefer to never have to think about anymore. But, everyone has a story to tell (it is what it is). And my experiences are part of who I am and the woman I became. Also, my past is what made me decide to embark on this healthy journey. (which led me to find some precious information, so I’m grateful for that). But, again, it’s scary. It’s like any new relationship; I don’t know you, you don’t know me yet and I don’t know what you’ll think of me after “reading me”. But, I’m eager to share what I’ve learned about health and wellness with everyone. I wish I knew these things years ago, but it’s never too late to learn.
My journey began about eight yrs ago. Something major happened at that time that motivated me to change the way I eat, the way I think and the way I live. Life happened…Eight years ago, my father had a stroke and unfortunately passed away. That’s when I decided to read on the subject of health, nutrition, wellness and fitness. I have found so many great tips that helped me and others in different areas of our lives. (Disclaimer: I am not a doctor and my blog only reflects my opinions). What also led me to become such a health geek, is that I know so many people who are dealing with mental illnesses. Deep depression, anxiety and other chronic diseases. I’m a helper by nature and always try to “find a solution”. Some of my friends and relatives (the most amazing people in my life) are suffering and there is little I can do. But, I can at least share some details about my findings. I’ve found most of the information online, in books and seminars. I’m still learning, so feel free to share your own research and experience. I mentioned earlier that some of the tips I found “helped me”. Well, yes I was dealing with depression after my father passed away. It lasted for a few weeks and it was the worst thing ever. I didn’t want to get out bed or talk with anyone. I felt as though I was hit by a truck, in shock and a little numb. Then, I decided to reach out to my family and friends and thank goodness for the great support. Following what helped others also made a difference for me. But, what changed everything, was learning about some fundamental information about health / wellness. The nitty-gritty details that everyone should be aware of.
Whether people want to follow the tips or not, is not my concern. I’m here to share (sharing is caring) that is all. Everyone has to decide for themselves what they want to follow. What they want to believe in. What they want to become…I’m looking forward to read your comments and get to know you better.
