Fall has come... Kind of

As of Saturday, it is officially Fall. But it doesn't feel like it. The weather is still beautiful. The sun is shining and I can still go out in shorts. This weekend I enjoyed going into the yard to rake leaves and mow the grass. The sunshine even makes picking up after the dogs more enjoyable. I plan on taking advantage of this sunshine for as long as I can because here in the Northwest, the winter comes with a vengeance. Still, I don't let the rain stop me. I still walk the kids to school and try to do things outdoors.

Exercise and Balance

I believe that exercise and balance goes hand and hand. When you have balance in your life you acheive greater things and your time is your own. Without balance you feel unsteady in how you are handling your life. When you take the time to exercise, eat properly and get enough rest that is balance. You embrace your life in a more positive way that is balance. This is how I break down the word balance. B- believe you can start today and every day in yourselfA- allow the proper time for yourself with exercise.L- learn new routinesA- allocate proper form

Courage. Choice. Change.

CourageBe brave enough to want to change your circumstance.  Your attitude.  Your outlook.  Your internal castle.  Be brave enough to risk losing what is no longer serving you.  Focus on what would better serve you from where you are standing now, not then.  And reach for it.  Gather the resources that will support this reach, not hold you back.  Now go on, be brave.Choice
