Rising Against Pushes Us to Rise Above

"A certain amount of opposition can be of great help to (wo)man -
Kites RISE against, not with the wind" John Neal

I was reminded this last week that we all... everyone of us, has challenges in our lives we are hoping to rise above. Each person you meet is carrying an imaginary
"backpack filled with rocks", only you and I cannot see it. Those rocks can represent depression, obesity, financial struggle, guilt, relationship trials, addictions and/or many others. Where does someone even begin in lightening their load?

I believe it begins by taking charge of your health. Start there!
I give you permission to put yourself first!
Putting yourself first is not easy!

Cut up those veggies
Get yourself to the gym
Go to bed at a decent hour
Say "I love myself more than that 3rd slice of pizza!"
Listen and obey your "true hunger signals"
Speak positive affirmations to yourself

This is where you start. No matter what!

If you don't have faith in yourself then know that I have faith in you.

There is always something to learn from each person who crosses your path.
It is the "good and the not so good times" we need to appreciate. Appreciate them all. Because in the end like they say, "Its all good."
There is always room for improvement & opportunities for growth.
Take advantage of these opportunities and become who you were meant to be.

Happy March 1st, 2010 EVERYONE!
When was the last time you flew a kite?
