I created this blog at the beginning of the year in hopes that I could use it to educate my patients and community. I did decent with posting on a regular basis then I allowed “life” get in the way and for that I apologize. All too often I think we let “life” get in the way of our dreams, goals, etc. I know there are situations that occur that can halt our progress (as it should), but how many times do things halt our progress that shouldn’t? It seems to happen to me a lot. For instance, getting back on track after having my daughter. I had thought that I would give myself one year to get back in shape, after all, pregnancy does not happen over night. It takes 10 months to make a full term healthy baby and it is a lot of work and takes a toll on our bodies. However, it has been nearly two years and I am not any closer than I was 6 months after I had her. I always seems to have something going on that keeps me from working out like I did before having a child. Another example is my business. This year I have really been trying to make corrections so that it runs smoother and is more successful, this goes from patient procedures all the way to marketing. I find myself having so many things that need to be “fixed” that most of the time I don’t even know where to start, therefore, I don’t start anything. So needless to say I recently looked at what my goals were at the beginning of the year and started evaluating where I am now and boy am I disappointed in myself. 😦 I look back and say to myself, “What have I actually accomplished so far this year from my original goals?” Sadly there isn’t much. I feel like I have been busy and that I have been busting my tail but there isn’t much head way to show it. So I got to thinking how many times do we become stagnant while still busting our butts just chasing our tails? I decided it is time for a change for this girl, so from here on out I am going to make educating my patients and my community my priority and everything else will fall in line. If anyone else wants to jump on my bandwagon to start changing their lives here is your chance to have an accountability partner! Let’s do this!
