I have to be intentional in my goals, my relationships and especially my health. The definition of intentional is "done on purpose, deliberate". That's what I need to focus on, to slow down and really be deliberate in the decisions that affect my health. I'm the only "ME" there is on this planet and I have a lot that I want to do while I'm here. I need to remember the purpose behind what I'm doing for my own health so I set myself up for the healthiest life I can lead.

Knowledge is power and I am continually amazed at the number of choices I have to control my own health and wellness when I slow down enough to see them. The more involved I get with my own health, the better I feel and the more energized I become to share the experiences to encourage someone else. I definitely was one of those people who "didn't know what I didn't know". I look back even five years ago and am so very grateful for the knowledge and time I've spent investing in my own health. From weekly chiropractic wellness visits (thanks to Dr. Scott Levan) and holistic dentistry (thanks to Hershey Dental Associates), for the first time in my life, I feel truly healthy overall.

So, if you're ahead of me, keep going and I'll be right behind you! If you're beside me, thank you for sharing this journey. If you're behind me, keep focused on the horizon and enjoy the individual successes along the way. It's well worth it!
