In health and regaining health, there is a need for committing to the experience of being healthier. It can be hard. Taking the time to work out or to cook healthier food, potentially learning how to cook healthier food can all seem overwhelming. The most overwhelming thing can be hearing other people say just do it, but we don’t even know where to start. Add to this not feeling well or feeling lost and sick and well… you can see that making changes can be hard.

What I find interesting is that if you really commit to making a change sometimes answers show up. Sometimes that person who can show you easy ways to cook just shows up or you find something online. Sometimes the exercise partner shows up. However, you really need to know what you are looking for and what you are committing to.

If we keep just moving towards our goal, even if it seems that we aren’t working at all, eventually we’ll get there. It’s better than stopping. We’ll never get to our goals if we just stop. No matter how slowly improved health comes (or doesn’t), if you stay committed to changing how you feel, eventually you will change it. The changes don’t always look the way we thought but they do come along. Nothing stays static forever.
