In December 2021 I looked in the mirror and realized that I had stopped putting myself first (or even close to the top of the list). A few weeks later I was diagnosed with ADHD and PCOS and it all kind of clicked. Not only was I putting everyone and everything BUT me first, I had health problems that I was basically ignoring in exchange for work and my family.
Slowly but surely from the moment I received both diagnoses, I started making slow, incremental changes to my lifestyle, and they made all the difference. These three categories are just a start, but they can drastically change your health and in exchange, your entire life.
Since the day I made the commitment to myself I have lost nearly 45 pounds, and made plenty of changes in my business and personal life that allow me live as a better, happier version of ME. Each of these three changes obviously have a LOT of steps, but when you commit to them, change is inevitable.
There is absolutely nothing like being physically stronger to change your life. There is SO much that goes into this part of my life, and I could talk about it all day, but it has been the single best thing that I have ever done for myself.
The bottom line is that the day you decide to truly commit to enjoying your life, and you make the time to actually do it, your life will change. How many people do you know that are really flourishing in their personal and professional lives that are not putting themselves, their health and their wellbeing first? You HAVE TO, and not the cute kind on Instagram. The kind that means making really tough calls, putting in HARD work on your body and mind, and confronting the ugly stuff you really don’t want to do.
The work is worth it. Truly.
