When you least expect it, Life happens. I know all about it, lol. We all experience big changes at one point or another – illness, work, marriage, death of a loved one. When we are hit with these life changing situations, how do we maintain our goals?
You go through the experience, and begin to make small steps to put your goals back in perspective. They may take a different shape because of your experience – go with the flow! Change is good, even when it seems disastrous at the time. Almost 8 years ago, I lost my sister Lisa in a nite club fire in RI. At the time it was devastating and there was a lot to examine and go through. I made a very conscious decision to ‘become a better person’ and maintain self care.
Years later, my Life is better than it’s ever been and I am reaching new heights and overcoming obstacles by staying motivated with new goals, coaching, being supported by friends, family and groups. Leading a healthy lifestyle is the strongest decision I can make for myself – it enriches every aspect of my being.
Adapting a healthy lifestyle will help you stay in flow, accept change rather than get derailed and become more determined to achieve your goals and continue to reach new levels of personal best. Life is always going to throw you a curveball……. knock it out of the park 🙂
Fit Tip: GO FOR IT!!! Whatever fitness goals you have chosen – go all out. If you stumble, get back up and go again!
