Something to THINK about…

Something to THINK about…

Recently received an email from a dear friend / member…

Came across this in the context of work (that is, client relationships), but it makes so much sense within the context of all relationships–including relationships with our own health! Had to share with someone who would appreciate it, and you are that person!

From Seth Godin’s blog on 3/27/2014: LINK

What if, in some sort of sci-fi solar flare cataclysm, it was impossible for humans to have more kids? No more babies.

How would we treat the last generation? Would we say to the youngest student on Earth, “sorry the school is really run-down […] Read more

Not Your Normal Challenge…

Not Your Normal Challenge…

“Your life is made by your CHOICES not your CIRCUMSTANCES.”

Everyday we make choices. And every single choice we’ve made has lead us to where we are today. Where we live, our health, income, family, neighbors, etc are all the results of our choices. And the more we make those same choices we develop them into habits.

“Ahh man, I don’t want to cut this out of my ‘diet’”
“I’m going to be on vacation for 7 days during the challenge.”
“There is my brother’s wedding.”
“I tried a […] Read more

Lesson from my trip to NYC…

Lesson from my trip to NYC…

New York City is crazy! The TALL buildings, LOUD noises (and people) the AMOUNT of places to see and food to enjoy is darn near infinite when you only have a few days.

It took my a day or two to get settled… And when I didn’t know what to do or where to go, NYC felt overwhelming, confusing and made me feel apathetic. I decided to do something so simple that ended up being a game-changer. I went to the information dude at the hotel (i.e. NYC Coach). After speaking with my ‘NYC Coach’ he gave me options I […] Read more

A Night To Remember …

Saturday one of my dearest friends AKA Ebeth said “I Do” to a wonderful gentlemen/CPM member Tyler Ahlers.

The Day was beautiful and had so many wonderful elements that really made me reminisce.

There is so much leading up to this big day and the day is just the beginning of the “rest of your life together”.

I looked at the two love birds and realized how young, naive, and raw they were in their relationship. They […] Read more
