KISS - Keep It Simple, Stupid!  Becoming a healthier me is a journey not to be taken lightly and that is not going to be fast.  Everybody is different and because of that, everyone's journey will be different.  there are two types of journeys - generally speaking - the direct and the scenic.  They both get you were you want to go, one just gets you there faster than the other.  Kinda like flying to England vs taking a boat.  Flying is definitely faster and, therefore, you get to enjoy your destination a lot sooner.  Consider the boat.  Crossing the Atlantic is no easy trip.  There are lots of different things that you have to overcome.  The weather - sunshine, rain, wind.  Calm or Rocky seas.  Each comes with its own joys and challenges.  The sunshine allows for fun and enjoying the trip.  The wind, rain and rocky waters make you question your decision - why did I choose this route?  Why do I feel like this?  Will this trip ever end?  The journey to a healthier me is going to be just as unpredictable and unique as an Atlantic crossing.  I know I will have good days and bad days.  Sometimes the "sun will be shining" and there will be minimal obstacles.  Other times it will be "raining with rocky waters" and nothing will appear to be going right and will most definitely not be easy.  Learning and overcoming is key on those days.  I determine to make the most of my unique journey. On the hard days I will focus on my destination - a healthy me.  On the good days - enjoy!  So here is to my journey to being a healthier me!  I hope that if you decide to start your own journey - my trials, challenges and successes will encourage you.


  1. Nice analogy. Enjoy your boat trip, hope the sunny, calm days outweigh the stormy ones. Either way, I'll be watching, ready to send out the lifeboat if you start to panic. xx

  2. I agree - nice analogy. Hopefully it won't be too stormy ahead! xx
