Every Day is The Start Of A New Journey - What Will I Choose Today?

What will I choose today? I ask myself that almost every single day...sometimes frequently throughout the day, since every moment of every day is an opportunity to begin again; to make choices that will lead to what we want and need. And what has my answer been the last couple of weeks: crap. I am choosing crap. I am choosing crap to put into my body and I am choosing crappy ways to spend my time. Knowing is half the battle, right? It's hairy, though, guys! You know what I mean; life is freaking hairy! There are so many factors that go into every decision and choice we make every single moment of every single day. There is so much emotional baggage and history, so many different chemicals and hormones acting and reacting within our bodies, so many external factors and stressors - DANG HAIRY! And so, I've been making choices that are keeping me where I'm at.
Though I have had many circumstances in my life negatively affect me and my health, the direction of my life is still largely up to me. Every little daily choice I make either leads me closer to the life and health that I want, or it leads me further away; every choice. Yes, it's really that simple. And yes, it's really that freaking hard! And so what will I choose tomorrow? What will you choose tomorrow? Our future is in our own hands. I want to choose health and moving forward. There are times in our lives where baby steps are appropriate; where "one step forward, two steps back" is the best progress we can sustain. Then there are times in our lives where we are so sick and tired of being sick and tired that we are ready to propel ourselves forward in powerful ways to make powerful changes that will lead to a powerful new you. I've had all of those times in my life. There is much groundwork and education that is laid in preparation for the big, powerful, all-in type of move forward. I have been laying that education and groundwork in my life for awhile now...and now is the time for me to make choices to propel myself forward! Let's dig in and run full-speed ahead!! Whatever that looks like for you or for me: Let's do this, baby!
