A Note on the Holidays from Yours Truly!

A Note on the Holidays from Yours Truly!

Hey hey friends!

Today we’ve gotta talk about the elephant in the room- sticking to your guns even when this time of year is encouraging you to fail and trying to keep you from realizing your truest potential.

Everywhere you look this time of year, such as grocery stores, is stocked with treats, sweets and food that is no good.

Shelves are filled to the brim with all the things that create more disease, more chemicals, more toxins. Everything that is so highly processed and contains low nutrition. But is that your food? No way! That’s not your food and I want you to know that I believe in you, that you can be better and do better despite the adversity!

I want you to know and realize that there is enough time left in this year to reach your true potential, and to get this Low-fat Raw Vegan lifestyle under your belt for good, no matter what the holiday season and naysayers tell you. It’s not too late, and I can’t have you quitting on me now after all we’ve been through together this year!

This is where I step in- to encourage you and coach you throughout this season, and giving you the tools that you need to succeed. Keep reading for some of my tips to get you through this especially tough time of year!

How Keeping a Journal Can Help YOU Maximize Your Potential

Hey hey ya’ll, rise and shine, it’s a new day!

Today I want to talk about journaling and helping to prepare yourself for positive change.

I like to say that “if you are waiting to have the will power, that is a long waiting line!”

Taking charge of your health and wellness should be a priority, and you have the power to make that change. You can have a new life, you have the power to change your health and life, it’s within your reach. It takes time to find your own path, and that’s okay! You must be kind to yourself so you can change your old patterns and create a new life for yourself. It’s a gift that is right there for everyone, you just have to have the initiative and take it.
