Hi Friends! It’s almost 2020. The first of the year is approaching and we all know what that means: New Year’s Resolutions. I’m not really a fan of resolutions only at the new year. I believe in setting goals and revisiting them frequently throughout the year.
One of the things that I’m going to do throughout 2020 is write on my blog. I’ve been a bit perplexed about where exactly I want the blog to go. I started out blogging on findingmyinnerathlete.com where I was going to chronicle my path from an obese, out of shape, formerly athletic woman to a happy, healthy, fit, and thing reclaimed athlete. Then I went to lifebeginsinthemiddle.com where I was going to write about changing my whole life up at mid-life and how I make my dreams come true. And then I’ve always blogged at teresapassey.com where it has just been a bunch of random musing.
Well, I’m not really sure I want to find my inner athlete—although I do want to talk a lot about my slide down the scale from 360 pounds, depressed, sick, unfit, lacking in self-confidence and self-love 50 year old, to a much thinner (but with a long way yet to go), happy, confident, woman. I eat plants. I move my body. I’m learning to love myself. I want to share it all. But….I don’t necessarily want to pursue athletic endeavors any more.
While I do think that life can begin anew with each and every breath we take, I don’t know that I want that to be the single focus of my blog. I do, however, want to write about being brave and going for what you want in life. I have done a lot of that over the past year or so and I want to shout from the roof tops that its never too late to go for what you want.
So, I’m leaving it for now at teresapassey.com. I am finding that developing healthful habits has been key to all of these areas of my life. I am toying with the idea of tying everything together by talking about how incorporating simple routines can help us create the happy and healthy lives we want.
At this point it is just an experiment. I’m happy that you are here. Things will likely be in a bit of flux over the next several months. I’d love to get your input. Please comment and let me know what speaks to you and what you would like to hear more about.
As an introduction, I’ll be doing the ABC’s of me over the next several weeks. It will mainly focus on things that I’m doing to reclaim my health, including a healthy mindset and healthy weight, as well as how being brave and being willing to live outside of your comfort zone can really pay off.
