#2 The Roller Coaster Ride
I did something yesterday. Something very much out of my comfort zone. There have been a few times in my life where I felt led to pursue something, even though I didn't really know what the heck I was doing. It wasn't just a gentle, one-time nudge nor did I hear a voice blasting from the heavens, but something was pulling me into unknown territory. It was like I was buckled in a roller coaster car, and I couldn't get off. As funny as it may sound, I didn't really want to get off, even though I was scared to death. I knew it was going to be a crazy ride, but I also knew I was supposed to be on that car.
The last couple of years have been quite the ride. I certainly didn't have a clue of the destination, but that roller coaster kept taking me from one point to the next. Somehow, I stayed on, remaining safe and sound. I embraced each new turn and all the highs and lows, not knowing where it was leading me. But it felt right. Things are now coming together. Things are now making sense.
So... yesterday I published my first blog. Me. I started a blog! And here you are with me. Thank you! Thank you for climbing in this car with me. I am truly honored and humbled and grateful.
As unplanned as it was, this new journey has led me to explore the health and wellness world...one article, one book, one podcast at a time. Not just ordinary health and wellness, but optimal health and wellness. The truth is I wasn't feeling great a few years back. The really sad part was I believed that this was the way I was supposed to feel. I was a grandmother for crying out loud! My days of being fit and full of energy were long gone. I just needed to be content and accept life as it came. Or so I thought.
Thus, the journey began. Call it Divine Intervention, curiosity, or maybe boredom, but I started looking for answers. What I uncovered has changed the course and the quality of my life. I now know there are things each of us can do to take control of and improve our health. I love this journey. It has renewed my spirit. I believe there is so much to share. I am far from having all the answers. I am still searching. I am still exploring. But the roller coaster keeps pulling me in this direction, so I will stay buckled in and see where it takes me.
So, my friend, what does optimal health mean to you? What would that look like for you? What answers are you searching for?
My purpose for writing this blog is to share with you my experiences and what I am learning. My hope is that you will find some valuable and life-changing answers here and possibly some clarity and encouragement as you travel on your own journey.
Before signing off, I must say thank you to everyone who has reached out and encouraged me to continue in this new endeavor. It means the world to me. Until next time...
May the Lord bless and comfort you,
