Trick yourself Healthy

consequences

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

 

I have learned that sometimes in order to reach my goals, I have to trick myself into doing the right thing.  Yes, my friends, it’s true.  Sometimes I don’t do what I’m supposed to do (gasp! Shock! Horror!)

This can be rather problematic when trying to reach my health and fitness goals, so I regularly have to be creative when trying to trick my lazy, impulsive Candice to not sabotage everything for the healthy, active Candice.  I wanted to share with you three tips that I have learned along the way that help me to stay on track and make better choices. Hopefully some or all of these will help you as you work towards your own goals in 2013.

 

Leave your purse in your trunk: Hi, I’m Candice, and I have a problem with not stopping for fast food on the way home.  And, c’mon, you can’t tell me that I’m the only one!  In order to combat the temptation of McDonalds, KFC, Chick-Fila, Wendy’s and the like, I learned a trick that plays into my overall lazy nature.  By putting my purse in the trunk when I leave work or home, it forces me to have to do the following if I want to feed my fast food craving:

1)      Stop my car

2)      Get out my car (and in the dead of winter, this is NO fun)

3)      Open my trunk

4)       Remove my purse and get out my money to pay for the food

5)      Close the trunk and get back into my car

6)      Purchase the “food” ( I hesitate to say food because, let’s be honest, we don’t even know what’s in half of fast food these days!)

In the words of my dear friend Sweet Brown “Aint nobody got time for that!”  (and if you’re wondering who Sweet Brown is, please watch this hilarious youtube clip and thank me later for providing you with a laugh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udS-OcNtSWo)  By doing this small change to my routine  9 times out of 10 I end up going home and eating my preplanned dinner and all is well with the world.

Put your work keys in the locker at your gym: If you are one of those special people who have a gym membership but can’t actually remember the last time you stepped foot in your gym, this is the tip for you.  By placing an item that you know you will need the next day in your gym locker (if allowed by your facility) you are forced to actually go to the gym to get it.  If it’s not work keys, maybe it’s your outfit for the next day.  And since you have to go to the gym anyway, you might as well get on the treadmill for 20 minutes….right? And if you’re going to do the treadmill, your legs will be sore and you gotta stretch them out…..right!?!?  I think you see where I’m going with this.

Hide your Veggies: For those of you who are not big fans of fruits and vegetables, but know that they are good for you and want the benefit of their vitamin and nutrient goodness, try sneaking them into things that you do like.  I recently got a Vitamix and will puree different veggies and add them to breads, soups or spaghetti sauce.  You rarely can ever taste the veggies you’ve added, which is great if you have children that are picky eaters.  Also, freezing fruit and using it as ice cubes is a nice way to get a visually appealing drink and another fruit in your diet J

 

2013 Weight Loss Update:  I lost 3.8 pounds this week.  2013 has started off on the right foot!

Your vision for 2013!

vision boardIt is a terrible thing to see and have no vision. ~Helen Keller

I spent the better part of the last hours of 2012 cutting out quotes, words and pictures that represented what I wanted for my life in 2013. This was my first attempt at a vision board, and I must admit that I found the process of creating this board to be extremely eye-opening and beneficial.  Sitting around with friends and visualizing my life for the next 365 days is the way I would love to spend every New Year’s Eve from now on (although the occasional party would be nice too).

The purpose of a vision board is to surround yourself with images of who you want to become and what you want to have.  When you place this board somewhere where you can see it daily, and begin doing ACTION (all caps, bolded and underlined means this is important, just in case you were confused) to make those thoughts and dreams a reality, your life changes to match those images and those desires.

As I was creating my board, I was thinking about all of the things that I wanted to leave in 2012 and subsequently all of the things I wanted to take with me into 2013. It is important to identify and acknowledge past mistakes and faulty thinking and replace it with positive changes for the future.

Because I’m such a nice person, I will share with you my top three things I am leaving in 2012 and the three things I am taking with me in 2013. They are as follows:

The top Three Things I am leaving in 2012

Procrastination–  This is a big one for me.  I’ve mentioned in other posts that it has become second nature for me to procrastinate with anything that needs to be done right now. I have been guilty of the “I’ll do it tomorrow syndrome” and it has come back to bite me in the butt more than once.  We all know that tomorrow is not promised.  And, let’s just be honest, tomorrow becomes the next day, and the next day and the next day.  Better to just do it now and get it over with.

Overly caring about what others think– I have spent the better part of 2012, consumed with what others thought about me, my life and how I was living it.  Let me tell you everyone, it’s exhausting! And it made it difficult to get anything done because I was too consumed with trying to determine what others would think if I made this decision or that decision.  Once I recognized that EVERYONE has an opinion, and rarely is it the same opinion, it was easier to recognize the silliness in trying to please others. It’s impossible to make everyone happy.

The “All or Nothing” mentality- I have discovered that I have this all or nothing mentality in many areas of my life, and I have seen the negative  effects of this not only with my health, but at work and in my personal relationships.  Not being willing “live in the middle” causes lots of problems. Either I am completely doing everything that I am supposed to do…or I’m doing nothing. Either I’m exercising every day or I’m eating chips on the couch.  Finding balance and living in the “grey” can be a good thing!

Top three things I am taking with me to 2013

Planning-  My very first post on this blog was about the importance of planning.  This is the single most important habit to being successful in life, in my opinion.  You must have a plan and work diligently to execute that plan. Whether it be preparing meals for the week on Sunday, or creating a to-do list every evening before the next day, planning lets you know where you are going and how you want to get there.

Operating out of my comfort zone– We all have that space in our lives that we don’t want to leave.  The comfort zone and familiarity of our daily activities can honestly crush us and keep us going in circles. Never really moving forward or backward…..just doing more of the same. Well no more! Outside of the comfort zone is where the magic happens! It’s where dreams are realized and where goals are accomplished.  How do you know when you are operating out of your comfort zone? You get that little feeling in your stomach that makes you feel nervous and fearful.  Use this feeling to remind you that whatever is causing you to feel this way is something you must do!

Decisiveness- I have always been the friend that if you asked where I wanted to go for dinner, my response would be “Wherever you want to go, I don’t care.”  It takes me 20 minutes to order dinner and you can forget about picking a paint color for the house or buying a new outfit.  I have discovered that by letting go of my fear of judgment by others, it allows me to be more decisive.  I would like to make more decisions without needing validation from others in 2013.

So what about you?  What are the three things that you are leaving behind in 2012 and the three things you are taking with you in 2013?  Have you created a vision board for the new year? If not, I suggest you get to cutting and creating! You won’t regret it.  I can promise you that.

Happy New Year!  Make 2013 great….On purpose!!

Creating Healthy Habits

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~Aristotle

As I enter into my fifth week of my healthier lifestyle, I am recognizing that the key to success is found in the little habits that you create and implement.  These “small changes” can be the   difference between success and struggle.  Oftentimes we think that weight loss, increased endurance and better overall health only come when we do something major (like running a marathon, or eating only fruits and vegetables.)  While those things are excellent and to be commended, it is more important, in my opinion, to make small sustainable changes over a period of time that help you stay on track and stay committed to a better you.

I have recently begun laying out my clothes for the next day (including my gym clothes) at night before I go to bed.  This little habit ensures that I am not waking up and spending unnecessary time trying to figure out what to wear and if it’s clean or not.  I have more time to sit down and eat my breakfast, have prayer and quiet time with God and still get to work on time.  This one “tweak” has changed my mornings considerably! And I never have an excuse to not go to the gym because my clothes are all ready to go! (darn..lol).

Another habit I have adopted is that I have switched from diet soda to sparkling water.  The best part of soda to me is the carbonation (weird, I know)  and when I found out that I could get the same “carbonation effect” without all of the chemicals and still get a water serving in I was sold!  Not only is it easier for me to hit my water goals, but my skin has cleared up. Double win!

I think we all can find a couple of small things in our life that we could slightly tweak or change that would help us become a better version of ourselves.  My goal this week is to add one more small habit (and keep up with the ones I’ve been doing) to help me reach my weight loss goals.

Here are few small changes you could consider implementing this week;

–          As soon as you get home, before you do anything else, put on your tennis shoes and go for a 20 minute walk (or longer if you feel so inclined).  Not only is walking a great way to clear your head and relieve stress, but you will sleep better at night…it’s true!

–          Take the stairs at work.  And if you really want a challenge, instead of looking for the closest parking spot to your building, look for the one that is furthest away! Every little step counts!

–          Drink a glass of water before every meal.  Not only does the water curb your appetite, but water is just good for your body!

–          Say one positive thing about yourself daily.  Get in the habit of being nice to you!

There are many many more changes you can make to help you reach your goals, but I figured I would get you started with a few of my favorites.  If you want a list of even more changes you can make, I found a link with a few more for you to consider http://www.ivillage.com/52-little-changes-big-weight-loss-results/4-b-394731

What small changes are you willing to make to better your life?  Feel free to comment below and share! I’d love to have some new ideas to try in coming weeks.

**Weigh In Update** I lost 2.6 pounds this week for a total of 12 pounds down! ((happy dance))

Be your own best friend

The Most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. ~Carl Gustav Jung

I have learned many things the past 10,000 times I’ve attempted to get healthy.  But perhaps the most important lesson I have taken with me is that in order to make any change in your life, you have to get to the point that you treat yourself like you would treat your best friend…. with love, kindness, forgiveness, sometimes  a kick in the butt, but always with respect.

In the past, I found it much easier to be kinder and gentler with others and not so much with myself.

For example, when I used to make a mistake, or when I didn’t do something that I knew I should’ve done (like exercise or eat right,) it was the end of the world.  I used to call myself stupid and lazy and incompetent.  “I’ll never get it together because I have no self control! What is wrong with me?!?!” was how my internal dialogue sounded.

And the more I beat myself up, the worse I felt.  And the worse I felt, the more I did non-healthy things as “punishment” for not getting it together.  It’s a vicious cycle.

That all changed when I had a conversation with a friend of mine who heard me talking about myself negatively.  She cringed when I told her that I was “fat and lazy” and could never do anything right.  “Well that’s your problem,” she said.  “You probably wouldn’t have the guts to say what you say about yourself to your worst enemy!  Stop being so mean to you! ”

I was shocked by her comments.  I felt like I had been hit by a ton of bricks.  She was right.  I was mean to me.  And it had to stop.

Since that eye opening moment, I have made a conscious effort to find ways to be nice to myself and more gentle with myself.  When I make mistakes, instead of telling myself how horrible I am for not having self control, I replace that internal dialogue with “You can make a better choice from now on.  You can do this.  You are more than capable.”

And you know what?  You actually start believing what you tell yourself.  I feel stronger and happier when I’m nicer to me.

Listen folks, we all have issues.  We all have things that we like or don’t like about ourselves.  My issue is my weight.  I don’t like that I’ve allowed myself to get overweight, out of shape and unhealthy.  But you know what?  That doesn’t mean that I can’t still love myself completely right now. I’m not saying that I have to stay overweight and unhealthy.  I’m just saying that  I don’t have to wait until I’m in “healthy land” to finally feel like I’m a worthwhile human being.  I’m worthwhile right NOW!  This very instant.

And now that I am walking in this truth, it is easier for me to continue my healthy lifestyle.  Why?? Because I love myself.  Because I feel worth the extra effort to cook meals at home and exercise.  I feel deserving of all of the good things this life has to offer.

Come out of the darkness and viciously negative cycle of self-hate.  It does nobody, especially yourself, any good.

And even if you can only find one good thing to say about yourself, then repeat that one thing every time you begin to think negatively about you.  My thing is my smile. I think I have a beautiful smile and a great attitude.  As I started reminding myself of just these two things, I suddenly started to find other things to add to the list.  And I was on my way.

God made no mistakes when he created you.  You were fearfully and wonderfully made.  Don’t disrespect yourself by feeding yourself negativity that tells you differently.

Be the best YOU can be!

Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive that is youer than YOU! ~Dr. Seuss

I’ve always considered myself a chameleon of sorts.   I easily adapt to whatever situation I am placed in, and can usually get along with most people that I encounter.  However, in order to accomplish this, a lot of the time I’ve had to essentially live a lie and change how I truly think, feel and behave in order to “fit in.”  If I was with a group that thought it wasn’t harmful to smoke in front of babies and they asked my opinion….”yeah, I guess all those studies that show second hand smoke is harmful are wrong.   You guys are probably right!” would be my response.    If I was around people who liked to go out to the club, I pretended that “clubbing was the best thing since sliced bread” when really I wanted to be at home watching The Bodyguard (doesn’t it always send shivers up your spine when Whitney Houston runs from the plane and throws herself into Kevin Costner’s arms for a passionate embrace??? Or is that just me?  **shrugs**).

But I have learned, my dear readers, that you cannot keep this up for long.  At some point, the REAL you is going to shine through.

And this happens because, quite frankly, you were not meant to be anyone else but who you are.  God gave you certain talents and gifts that he didn’t give to me or your mother or you friend Spike.  And when you try so hard to be who other people want or expect you to be and not who you are truly meant to be, you rob the world of the greatness that is you!  And you become bitter and unfulfilled in the process.

But in order to begin being the authentic you, you have to accept one unfortunate truth that there is no getting around.  Not everyone is going to like the authentic you.  And that’s simply because nobody likes everybody all of the time.  People can like or not like you for the pettiest of reasons.  They might not like you because you’re too dark, or too light, or you smile too much, or frown too much.  Maybe they don’t like how you smell.  Maybe they don’t like that you have all of your teeth.

A wise man once said “Show me a person that everyone  likes, and I’ll show you a person who is not being themselves.”

Okay, maybe a wise man didn’t say that, and maybe I just made that up off of the top of my head, but you get the point.

Being you takes courage.  And sometimes, when you are true to yourself, you may find that you are the only one who feels a certain way about a particular issue or decision.  And that’s okay.  Because what if the decision being made was whether everyone should kill themselves and you were the only one who thought that was NOT a good idea and stuck to your guns?  I know that is an extreme example, but the truth behind it is there.

And the more you continue letting your natural self shine through, the easier it gets.  You become happier.  You become healthier.  Because you are finally living in truth!

Today, introduce the world to your authentic self…the good, the bad and the fantastic.  The more you let yourself shine, the more you give permission to others to let their light shine.  In the words of my friend Sophia….BE THE LIGHT!

Enjoy your weekend!

Quote of the Night

I saw this and just had to share it.  Truer words have never been spoken.  Read it, receive it and believe it.

“Sooner or later, you start taking yourself seriously. You know when you need a break. You know when you need a rest. You know what to get worked up about, and what to get rid of. And you know when it’s time to take care of yourself, for yourself. To do something that makes you stronger, faster, more complete. Because you know it’s never too late to have a life. And never too late to change one.” ~Nike

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

In honor of Nelson Mandela’s 94th Birthday today, I decided to discuss one of of my favorite Nelson Mandela quotes regarding the impossible.

There have been many challenges i’ve faced in my life that I felt were impossible for me to conquer.  Some were work related, some health related and some just personal goals that I thought I would only accomplish “In my dreams.”

I want to share my absolute favorite “Impossible” scenario with you.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Boyz II Men more than popsicles and red velvet cupcakes (in other words….a whole lot).  I’ve been a fan since the tender age of eight years old, and it was always a dream of mine to one day be able to meet my favorite member, Shawn Patrick Stockman (or Shawn Patrick as I affectionately call him).

In my mind, the opportunity of ever being able to meet and be conversational with him was impossible.  He was a celebrity who lived the celebrity life, and I was just Candice….a girl from Maryland, who loves to laugh at corny jokes and make youtube videos.  The closest I thought I would ever get to him acknowledging my presence was possibly a sidewards glance at a concert.

Years and years went by, and I never got an opportunity to even be in his vicinity.  I wrote the  fan letters (Dear Shawn Patrick….your my favorite! Please write back! xoxoxo, Candice.)   I joined the fan club.  I wore the t-shirts and bought every cd.  But he still didn’t know me from any other random person on the street.  It seemed my dream of meeting him was indeed impossible.

Now, I won’t bore you with the nitty gritty details (because I could talk about this forever), but with a little persistence and hard work,  the impossible happened, and happened more than once.  Twenty years later (yes, I said TWENTY years later),  not only has Shawn Patrick smiled and waved at me from stage, but he also knows my name (yay!) and seems genuinely happy to see me when I see him at a concert.  And then this here picture happened and I darn near peed my pants! (Don’t we look like a Christmas card??)  This picture is the perfect representation of what I thought would only be a dream “coming true.”

And as crazy as it sounds, being able to have this “impossible dream” become a reality helped me shift my mindset in other areas.  If I could meet Shawn Patrick, what else could I accomplish that seemed impossible?  What other dreams could I make a reality, if only I tried?

I truly believe that there is no limit on what we can do and accomplish in life as long as we believe that we can do it and put in hard work to achieve it (see yesterday’s post about “Just doing it” if you need a reminder.)

The biggest obstacle to overcome is mental.  When faced with the impossible, you have to find the inner strength and drive to make it possible.  You have to find that inner voice that reminds  you that you can do anything that you set your mind to, and remind yourself that anything seems impossible if you never try to accomplish it.

And for those people in your life who try to plant seeds of doubt and uncertainty in your mind when you are trying to make things happen, rehearse in your mind the three quotes I hold dear regarding the impossible:

“The person who says it’s impossible should not interrupt the person who is doing it.” ~Unknown

“Impossible? Things are happening everyday.” ~Cinderella

“I am the greatest.  I said this even before I knew I was.  Don’t tell me it’s impossible.  Don’t tell me i’m not the greatest.  I’m the double greatest. ~Muhammad Ali

And repeat this to yourself daily:

“I will get there.  I will get there somehow.  Cross that river.  Nothing’s stopping me now.  I will get through the night. And make it through to the other side.  Get there.  Get there.” ~ Lyrics to “I Will Get There” by Boyz II Men. (Buy their NEW CD TWENTY in stores now! http://www.boyziimen.com) **I couldn’t resist, lol.**

What impossible in your life will you work on making possible today?  The world and it’s many possibilities are waiting!!

Just Do It!

I would like to start off this post by saying that I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with thinking things through before acting on a plan,  and making a list and checking it twice (especially if you are trying to determine who is naughty or nice…just sayin).

I do, however, think it’s wrong to think so long and so hard about doing something that you forget one important thing…… actually doing it.

And that is the story of my life.

I can analyze the heck of out a new idea or something that I really think I should try.  I consider all of the things that could go right or wrong,  the best way to go about implementing the idea, the pros and cons of the plan.  I can spend days and days, and weeks and weeks on end “thinking” about the next action to take.

Take this blog for example.  I had the idea to share my thoughts via a blog around this time a year ago.  I thought about what I would write, who would read it, and what I could say to help other people on their own journey.

And here we are almost a year later and I am JUST now getting around to posting.  Tsk, Tsk Candice.  Tsk Tsk.

I learned the power of “Just Doing It” not just from the Nike commercials, but really by observing a Sorority sister of mine.   She is the type of person who gets things done.  She makes a decision that something needs to be implemented and immediately begins working on it.

I used to stare at her in awe and ask “How did you do that? What about all the things to think about? What about all of the things to consider??  What if this goes wrong?  What if that goes wrong?  She laughed at me and said “Candice, if I spend all my time “thinking and considering” I won’t have any energy left to DO IT!

And boy is she right.  What matters at the end of the day is not what you think about doing, but what you actually do.  Thoughts and planning do nothing for you if they are not followed up by implementation and work.

When you look at people who have made a significant impact on the world or in their lives, you know them not by the idea they had, but about the WORK and ACTION they put forth to make a dream a reality.  I wouldn’t be glued to my iphone right now if Steve Jobs had only thought about creating Apple.  The way we communicate with others has been changed because of his ACTION!

The Bible says “Faith Without Works is Dead.”  I think that is a very important verse that people really don’t consider when they are on the journey to good health.  Thinking about eating fruits and vegetables don’t give you the vitamins and nutrients they provide.  Eating them does.  Thinking about going to the gym and planning what exercises you are going to do don’t increase your endurance and help you lose weight, actually GOING to the gym does that.  ACTION is where its at my friends.

So what plans and goals are you going to ACT on pursuing today?  And whatever it is that you decide to do, good for you!  The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.

Have a blessed one!

All or Nothing at All

As I finished my workout at the gym today, I started a conversation (in the sauna of all places) with a girl who is on the same road to good health that i’m on.  We were talking about the things that caused us to quit in the past, and were surprised that we both identified the exact same thing as our downfall to reaching our goals.

The All of Nothing Mentality.

I have never liked to live my life in the grey….never liked lukewarm bathwater…never “sorta kinda” did things.  My life has always been black of white.  Hot or cold.  And i’m either eating only fruits,vegetables, lean protein and going to the gym everyday or i’m glued to my bed eating chinese food and cinnabons.    This is the way I have always functioned.

I realize that in order for me to finally achieve my goals, this is a mentality that i’m just going to have to give up.  There is no person other than Jesus who did every single thing exactly right.  We as human beings are going to have good days, and not so good days.  Some days we make smart choices, others…not so much.  But the key, I’m learning is to accept quickly that you made a mistake and move on….not throw in the towel and say “forget it” because you weren’t perfect.

I mentioned in one of my youtube videos that this is why I have started and stopped my weight loss journey so many different times.  At some point, I made a mistake, or had a gain, or skipped the gym and I couldn’t forgive myself and move on.  I felt unworthy to finish because I did something I know I shouldn’t have done.

I’m trying something new this time around.  I’ve decided to strive for middle ground when it comes to my healthy lifestyle.  Middle ground to me is accepting that sometimes, I will have an unplanned piece of pizza or birthday cake.  It’s accepting that one day, I may not make it to the gym.  But that it’s ONE MEAL and ONE DAY, and it does not have to turn into a whole week of bad choices.  I can and will make the decision to forgive myself and move on.

A past leader of mine gave me a great analogy that I wanted to leave you with on this topic.  She mentioned that we should view our journey to good health, much like we view a long car ride out of state.  If you were two hours into the trip and you took a wrong turn…would you say “to hell with it!” and turn around and go back home?  Of course you wouldn’t.  You would find your way back to the right road and keep going.  Why is your health journey any different?

The definition of Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Today, as I move one day closer towards my goals, I am making a different decision and changing my mindset.

And if I can do it, you definitely can do it!  I tell you no lies. 🙂

Are you Happy?

I saw the above picture come through on my facebook feed that asked the question that I think we all have pondered from time to time…are you TRULY happy with your life?

I would say that I am generally satisfied with my life from day to day.  I try my best not to dwell on the “bad things” that can usually get people down. But am I truly happy?? Well…i’m not so sure.  And since the answer for me is not an unequivocal “YES I’M HAPPY!” then who’s responsibility is it to change this?  You guessed correctly…..the answer is me.

I think that there are so many things that I want to do with my life.  That I want to be, that I want to accomplish and that I aspire to do before I leave this earth.   But I have always let fear, procrastination and worries of what others would think, hold me back from accomplishing those dreams.  And it has left me feeling more and more unsatisfied with the direction my life has been heading.

Take this blog & my youtube channel for example.  Ever since I was a child, i’ve loved writing and i’ve loved expressing myself in front of a camera.  I created a youtube channel to document my weight loss journey back in 2010 and found great satisfaction in making my weekly videos.  I loved doing it and loved that my journey could inspire others.

But then I stopped.  I rationalized that it was because I wasn’t doing well with my weight loss and nobody wanted to watch a failure, but I suspect the real reason was because somewhere really deep down inside, I didn’t feel that I deserved to be able to have a youtube channel because “who am I to inspire others?”  I didn’t start doing this blog because I constantly told myself “Nobody wants to hear what I have to say.”

And, my friends, I’m here to tell you…you are what you tell yourself you are.  You are what you believe you are.  If your internal voice tells you that you are never going to be happy, then you won’t be happy.  If you tell yourself that nobody should care what you have to say, then they won’t.

The point I am trying to make is that I think the key to being able to say YES to the question about being happy is for you to do two things:

1) BELIEVE.  Believe that you deserve to be happy.  Remind yourself every minute if you have to.  Positive affirmations come into play here.  Tell yourself all of the great things about you and your life and then tell yourself again.  Sooner of later you will have to begin believing it.

2)  ACT!  Don’t just wish that you could find happiness.  Fight like hell for it.  Like the above picture says, change something that your doing that has been making you unhappy…whether it be being overweight, not changing your career….whatever it is….WORK HARD to change it!

I have decided to be happy.  I am going to blog and make videos and help others because that is what fulfills me.

What about you?  Can you honestly say that your happy?  And if not…what are YOU going to do to change it?  You get one life people. Live it on purpose!!
