If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been writing consistently for a while, I’m here to tell you. I’ve been paralyzed with uncertainty. I felt overwhelmed, anxious and unsure about the direction I needed to go.
Then, after I made the decision, I kept putting off getting myself in gear and moving forward with my decision.
It felt like I knew what I wanted and where I wanted to go, but I was strapped down with about a ton of weights and couldn’t move an inch.
Have you ever felt that way? I mean seriously. I felt completely immobilized.
I kept going back to that “focus like a laser” thing. You think you have the answer, but then the doubt creeps in and settles down for a while, causing you to get anxious and question your decision.
Doubt is just another word for fear. Fear needs to be conquered, so I am conquering my fear.
I don’t know if you noticed, but I changed the header on my blog. It’s still the shoreline of a beach, because the beach pretty much sums up who I am. My name is still the same and my web address is still the same; however, instead of the tag line “A Happy, Healthy and More Abundant Life,” I am now “The Healthy Writer.”
Why the change?
Because I am a writer. That is my dream and that is what I am pursuing with laser-like focus. But I’m also a healthy living and longevity enthusiast. So, while I pursue me vision of becoming as big as Jackie Collins or James Patterson, I will continue to blog about my health journey.
Remember, health is not just about food and exercise. I believe health encompasses so much more than what you put in your mouth or whether you can contort yourself into a pretzel. Health is about mind, body and spirit. It’s like a three legged stool – if you take away one of the legs, the entire thing will fall.
I thank you for your part in my journey and I hope you will join me as I venture into 2017. It’s going to be a great year!
