What is possible?

2008 is here. It is a new year with new hopes and ideals about the many ways we can live a more healthy life. I am optimistic about the possibilities. It seems that this is a very common occurrence. People say good bye to the old, welcome in the new, and expect that this is the year for change. The enthusiasm is a vital part of the requirements for change. But it is only one of the pieces. For things to happen differently, there must be a shift in thoughts and behaviors as well. A new paradigm where eating healthy and exercising regularly are fully conceivable, even if these behaviors have been absent from the past.
2008 is an opportunity to imagine and create what is possible. Imagining and believing are the very first steps.
Who do you want to be in 2008?

You close your blog entry with a question and I am choosing to be arrogant enough to believe that it was not rhetorical! I answer as follows: "I want to be the best I can be. I want to take care of my mind and my body in equal measure. More still, I want to feel well and energetic so that I can take care of those I love. I believe in nature and its provisions. I am only 20 and beginning my journey of discovery, but I am lucky enough to have parents who love me unconditionally and therefore I am free to make mistakes, as long as I only make them once! 2008 is a year of stepping out for me. Thank you for giving me the airspace to sound out my own feelings.
