Dear Lovely Human,

I’m so glad you’re here. Are you feeling like you want to run, though? Get out while you can? I know. Wellness can feel like such a pain in the ass. Annoying, restrictive, punitive, difficult. No wonder you sometimes feel like you’d rather just die early.

I get that. I hate that, too. And that’s not what I do here. I want you to build a wellness-based lifestyle that you love like the moon. Not one you endure. I’m all for loving life. There’s enough hard stuff at times. Let’s not add more when we don’t have to. I’ve built that life, and — gasp — I enjoy what I do. It’s not simply that I’m effortlessly well. I built that life after being hugely ill and trying to find all the medical answers so my life wouldn’t suck … or be spent at the doctors … or cost me tons of money and too much time only to often feel victimized … but still not have the answers I needed. Enough of all of that.

Here’s what we do: Shore up your foundation, in all ways. So you feel back in power. Strong, bold, maybe even a bit dangerous. Give you the tools to figure out what you need to be more well or to face unwellness if that’s where you find yourself now. And also be able to put those to good use if a period of being ill hits you down the road.

And, guess what? I’m not here to shame you into being well. Or nag you. Or drill sargeant you. You’re a grown up. Doing that to you is bullshit. If you’ve experienced times when someone gives you that look or tells you to get your fat ass off the couch and just get moving or criticizes something you are doing or not doing or whatever … FUCK that shit. Fuck it. That’s not what I’m here for. That’s not what you need. Making you feel like shit about yourself doesn’t help in the long run. And, dear one, I’m all about the long run — your beloved life — not just making me look good or you look all healthy as shit for a month or two.

You also need to know that I am anti-overwhelm. Overwhelm is not a useful thing — for you to feel well, to get anything done, for change. Overwhelm can stop you in your tracks. That’s why I’ve created this so it’s as anti-overwhelm as I can manage and pro-you-feeling-great-about-what-you-just-accomplished.

So you know that piece isn’t just pretty language to suck you in, here’s how I do this:

One, small steps. They’re do-able and possible and all things good. They may not seem sexy at first, but, baby, believe me, when you start getting those in place, you’re going to be grinning like crazy. They accomplish great things the same as throw-the-baby-out-with-the-bath-water plans. Probably better because you keep going instead of giving up when it all seems like too much.

Two, we find what you love or can get enthused about or are curious to try. You like the changes you’re putting into place? You, even — gasp — find the fun in them? You are more likely to keep doing them, and they’ll become part of the new life you love. One that is still based in wellness.

Sound good? Great! Peruse away. There’s plenty of info in my blog posts, you can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, contact me to ask more or head right over to the products and services link so you can choose the program that’s right for you and get started. I’m totally looking forward to getting to know you.
