One Choice, One Step


The year is new but that doesn’t mean we can just amend old habits with a spoken wish and a written resolution…OR IS IT?

We have been conditioned to believe that change is hard, that the struggle is real, and that it is in the difficulty that resides the prize. I respectfully disagree.

Change is on choice. It is one step away at any given point in your life. The opportunity is omnipresent.

What must be at the top of my list of choices is self-care. Not because I am selfish…but because I am a leader, an innovator, a student, an artist, and a friend. I participate in my community, industry, and family. I owe it to the people around me that I love and respect to be the best that I can be.

One step defines your day. One choice defines your future.

Take the time to take care of yourself.

There is a reason the flight attendant says to put on your oxygen masks before attempting to help others.

You can’t help others if you can’t breathe!

I love each and every one of you.

  1. This is so true. The choice is ours. The choice to take care of our body, is ours. Take one day at a time, with happiness and the choice to do our best and be thankful for another day. It makes a better day to look for happy, and not the negative.

  2. Totally agree. I have had the life sucked out of me for years but to my own fault because I allowed it. No more though. Everything i do is for me right now because i am doing what i need for me for the first time in my life.
    Thank you. You are always a friend


    1. You have always done too much for too many. It is MORE than time for you to put yourself first. Soooo the NEXT time I see a picture of you carrying 3 -10′ pipes across a parking lot on your shoulder I should REMIND you that you are not 21 anymore?


  3. It so hard to do this and so necessary. We often put self-care on the back burner because we feel we need to help others first.
