Salvere Blog: Dreaming and Doing

by Salvere Health and Fitness

what if you fly

While new years resolutions don’t have quite the same meaning as they once did, January does bring an opportunity to think and reflect on a new year and process an old one. In doing some introspection of my own, this year starts a whole new chapter for me and I thought I’d share a little of that with you. As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of sharing our stories with each other — It’s a great way to develop a support system and navigate your way through this thing called life!

The new chapter — A year without close involvement in Girls on the Run. For me this program came to Howard County because I stood by and watched too many clients struggle with finding their own beauty and uniqueness amidst a sea of media messages telling us what we “should” look like or “should” act like based on something not realistic (reality TV, magazines, air brushing, you name it!).

The biggest things I can pass on to each of you from my experience taking this crazy, scary leap in 2009 — Be brave enough to take chances, dreams can become reality and you are all powerful enough to use your voice and change a community!  Stand up for something you believe in to make this world a better place — All these things are way cool and not as scary as they seem at first! Share your story, journey and trust in those around you to build you a safety net.

To all of you who find it difficult to see beyond things like the scale, the “right” clothes and what “everyone” says you “should” do to find your true happy self, know it’s right in front of you (or maybe the way to say it is right inside you.). Find and define your own beautiful and celebrate it —
