The Need for Self-direction

“To bring anything into your life, imagine that it’s already there.”
– Richard Bach

The first thing to notice about self-direction is that you’re already doing it. You already make choices and decisions about your own health and health care, whether in a completely independent way or by way of choosing your doctor and following her advice. You’re already responsible for your health choices. The question to ask yourself is how conscious are you of that responsibility?

On the wellness adventure

“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and
you do not know what it will bring back, a new
life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.”
– Anais Nin

You know you’re in the Wellness Adventure stage when the journey has turned into an exciting adventure and all the changes you’ve made, the help you’ve found, and the choices and decisions become something greater. This stage is characterized by feelings of gratitude, a desire to give back, and the sense of connection to something greater than us.
