Wow. I love this post but when I really sat down and started to think about what my true goals are it baffled me. Of course I want to feel better and get over my back injury and all that but what do I really want out of this?
1. Create a healthier lifestlye for myself and my family. I want my 4.5 month old son to grow up healthy not like I did on fast food.
2. Live to be 100 but still function on my own. I want to see my great grandkids without being on an oxygen tank and taking 23 medications so I can still function.
3. Enjoy my time here on earth more with my new found respect for life and the natural order of things.
4. I want to take everything I am learning here and through my own trial and error and try to really help other people. This is not a hard way to live and it really only takes a few common sense approaches to really make a difference. Besides if people want real healthcare reform then they need to realize it all starts with the individual not the doctor. They treat us only when things go wrong. This lifestyle can stop a lot of the problems beforehand.
5. Mark off everything on my list I've always wanted to do by enjoying life. Hike the Appalachian trail. Swim with the great whites off S. Africa (in a gace of course), etc.
6. Start a Primal group in Atlanta that meets once or twice a month for workouts, shoot the poo or whatever. I want others to feel that they have a support group they can count on for motivation, encouragement or just someone to throw ideas at. I wouldn't mind also to try and set up a fund for all of us to go to Primal con in the future.
Of course this list will grow and grow as time goes on but I think these for now will suffice.
Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it. If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
