One of my favorite quotes is a Chinese Proverb by Lzo Tsu and it says,
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
By finding this site, you have now taken that “one” step – the FIRST step.
MY “ONE STEP”
I’m like many of YOU! I’m a wife, mom of three sons, grandmother, career builder, and caregiver. And, if you follow the Zodiac, I’m a Cancer and pretty true to description, meaning I’m a caregiver by nature. I’ve spent years taking care of my family, my job, and my friends BUT not very much of that time taking care of me. In fact, I put me last a LOT. Sound familiar?
I really decided at the age of about 46 that I needed to make a change for myself. I was very dedicated to a corporate job in higher education. I spent more time at my job then at home and after 16 years of 12-14 hour days, and frequent six day a week work weeks; I knew that if I didn’t make some serious changes I would certainly be compromising my health and would be hard pressed to enjoy the second half of my life in the manner that I wanted.
I woke up with a pot of coffee before 6 a.m., probably downed three or four Venti coffees throughout the day and sometimes would wind down at bedtime with a glass of wine or some type of sleep aid. SCREECH! It doesn’t take long for those activities to wear the body out. I really had no idea that all the stimulants I was consuming were really wrecking my sleep. I didn’t understand that sleep is vital to the body’s ability to rest and repair. I just knew I was tired, fat, and somewhat depressed.
