Happy Monday…now that it’s over! lol
I had some time this weekend to read some personal development awesomeness by John Maxwell. I find it so sad that many people go into job fields that they don’t even enjoy just because it was forced upon them; or at least something they were lead to believe was their “best choice”. How do you get up in the morning to go to a job that you HATE? I mean, I don’t like to be a negative-Nelly on any topic but this would drive me insane!
I was fortunate to have found my passion at a young age, just due to the fact that I was fighting with issues that made me unhappy and in searching for answers; I found my passion. Who knew that I’d love all things fitness and health related? But I do!
Take for instance, my queue on my Netflix channel. I just finished watching “Forks Over Knives”…(look at my previous post regarding that gem!) and yesterday I finally caught “Fat, Lazy and Almost Dead”…wow!!! Another awesome documentary! This one about an Australian man who comes to America, fat and sick, on a mission to get healthy. He decides to do a 60 day juice fast and the results are spectacular!! He loses almost a hundred pounds and ends up getting off all of his medications…and there were almost a dozen bottles when he started! He also motivated many others to do the same; including a severely obese man with the same skin disease as the star. This man, (Phil) starts the very same cleanse and also loses an amazing amount of weight (well over a hundred pounds) and clears up all of his health issues and medications too!
Does this interest everyone? Not so much. I guess to most, it’s not really “exciting” to watch but I am completely engaged in doing whatever I can to stay healthy and help others do the same.
So, be bold and find what truly inspires you!! Remember, if you are passionate about something in life and work in that field; you never have to be pushed to go to work or work harder ever!!
Imagine that!! Now…for my guilty pleasure; watching “The Voice” with my kids. See? I’m not that odd!!! 🙂
