Every choice we make gives us a new opportunity to learn, grow and evolve…or stay stagnant, small and stuck.

Every choice we make opens the door to a new way of thinking, acting and behaving…or pulls us further into an old belief system, pattern or way of living that no longer serves us.
Every choice we make is a decision to move forward…or stay behind.
Each day we make hundreds of choices. We choose what we wear, what we eat, how we relate to those around us, how we care for our bodies, our minds, our spirits, how we “show up,” how we nurture ourselves and those we love and so much more.
For most of us, so many of these choices are so habitual, we fail to recognize them as a choice at all because we don’t even realize we’re making them. So, with this in mind, here are a few key areas in your life where daily decisions are continuously being made. I invite you to take a look to see how those daily decisions are moving you closer or further away from the life you truly want.
Nutrition-what food choices are you making? Are you filling your body with real, whole, nutrient rich healthy food or processed, nutrient void, calorically dense “sub food?” Are you choosing to fill your body with chemicals, toxins, substances and ingredients your body is unable to recognize, metabolize and process? Imagine a few years into the future. If you continue with the choices (including the portion sizes and eating behaviors you currently have) how will these choices impact your body? Will they lead to a lean, fit, healthy body filled with energy and vitality or will they possibly lead to weight gain, sluggishness, ill health, conditions, even disease?

As far as fitness is concerned, are the choices you’re making creating a lean, toned, flexible and strong body? Note how active you are and the way you move throughout your day. As a result of your daily activity (or inactivity) are your muscles, tendons and ligaments becoming stronger and more pliable? If you were to continue with your current level of activity, how will your body look and feel years from now? Will those choices keep you healthy, keep you flexible and improve your quality of life because you’ll be able to maintain your health, strength and stamina?
How do you relate to those your love? Is your current method of communicating bringing you closer or further away from having loving, positive and supportive relationships filled with love, fun and intimacy? Are you expressing yourself in a way that if you continue, over time, would your relationships improve…or become strained? How about with friends, associates, coworkers and acquaintances? Take a look at the current way you speak, handle and sustain these relationships. If you continue making the same choices as to how you’re currently communicating, over time will they thrive…or fizzle?
