Living to the Fullest

Remember being a kid and wanting nothing more than to grow up?  I remember when I just couldn't wait to be older, but time seemed to move like molasses.  When I finally reached those coveted high school and college years, I never gave youthfulness a second thought.  At that point in my life, aging mattered nothing to me because in my mind I would be young forever.

As time passed, I got married and had children.  Then a funny thing happened.  Time, that old bugger, changed on me.  What once moved so slowly, now accelerated to a crazy pace.  Youthfulness, being fresh and young -- you take it for granted when you have it, but when it begins to slip away you realize that time waits for no one.

I just turned 40 this past spring.  Now more than ever, I want to be in control of my destiny, my health, and my youthfulness.  I've heard people say, "You gotta die of something!" and promptly take a drag from their cigarette.  Yes, we all die eventually but we don't have to rush the process.  I want to focus on living, and living to the fullest.  

In the past decade and a half, I have begun a journey toward better health.  I have become excited about a way of living that promotes vibrancy and youthfulness.  I want to share that information with as many people as possible.  We all make choices daily that impact the quality and longevity of our lives.  Once armed with information, we can make a decision about how we want to live.  I don't know about you, but I honestly don't ever want to come to the point where I have to take a myriad of medications and need a little plastic drug container organized by day.  I want to be healthy, strong and lean for years to come.  To be able to live with  zero fear that I might succumb to disease.  Disease prevention, and many times reversal of it, is so possible. I want to look younger than my age -- to have smooth, clear skin.  I want to feel good, light, and contented.  I want to have a sharp, clear mind.  I want positive relationships, positive emotions and thoughts.  This is how I choose to live.  I invite you to join me on this journey.  No matter where you are in life or what your circumstances are, no matter what your age or your health may be, it's never too late to improve the quality of your life and increase your longevity.  Join me in my quest to live beautifully!
