I’m secretly pretending that the cup of green tea on my desk is actually a beautiful crystal champagne flute filled with chilled Veuve – celebrations are in order!
Fit Life Canada is officially here – functioning, alive, with a pulse counting the beats of its little brand new digital WordPress heart. The name pretty much describes the types of magical things you will find here: anything and everything related to health, fitness and wellness. Exciting stuff!
Here I hope to share my ideas, discoveries, thoughts, and experiences, have some great conversations with those of you who are equally passionate about these topics, and, most importantly, have lots of fun while doing it!
Another reason to start this blog is purely charitable – in an effort to spare the ears of my very patient friends and family of my constant questions, ‘lectures’ and advice around all things related to healthy living. You are welcome!
The idea to start a blog dedicated to my biggest passions in life – health, fitness and wellness – has been looming in my head for quite some time. But as many of us might agree, the sad reality of life is that it does, in fact, get in the way. However, I’ll be the first one to admit that the only true reason why it’s taken me so long is simple – and painfully embarrassing - fear. Fear of not following through, making mistakes, but worst of all, sucking at this blogging thing. Badly.
And some might say resolutions like “I will do one thing a day that scares me” sound cliche and almost naive, but it feels like this particular muscle rarely gets the workout it really needs and deserves.
So let’s begin… Without being afraid of consequences, with a single promise to myself and anyone who will be touched by this experience: here is to enjoying the journey, making small steps, being inspired and dreaming big.
Because not taking the first step is far scarier to me than screwing this up. And however small this step is, I hope with all my heart that it will make me braver and help me bring all the wonderful things I have drawn in my mind to life.
So here is to first steps… You’ve just witnessed mine. What will be yours?
