In a few weeks I’ll hit a milestone –the two year anniversary of launching Plant Food ROCKS. It’s hard to believe it has been that long. My intention with the blog has always been to promote the benefits of following a plant based diet.
From that perspective, I’ve shared everything from healing foods to super foods. I’ve shared my fitness journey from hiking, to my 21-day yoga challenge, and my greatest feat of participating in a sprint triathlon.
I’ve also incorporated spiritual lessons I’ve learned about faith, prayer, and meditation. My favorite blogs have been those that have evoked the most response from you. Most of you tend to respond favorably when I’m transparent on matters that you can relate to.
As you know, I approach health and wellness from a holistic perspective: mind, body, and soul. Every area of our lives impact our health. If our lives are out of balance in any area, it’s going to impact our ability to obtain optimal health.
The last few months I have been reconsidering my objective with the blog. Some days there were things I wanted to share that fit my objective, but didn’t feel authentic. I can honestly say my desire has shifted a little bit. So, I’ve been working through that. I made the conscious decision to pull back on blogging until I was clear about the direction I wanted to take. I’ve asked myself: what’s next for the blog? More importantly, what’s next for me?
I’ve spent time getting to the bare bones of what I believe, what I’m passionate about, who I want to impact, and what I have to teach. At heart I’ve always been a teacher. Whenever I learn something, I feel compelled to share it with others. That typically comes through in the form of a workshop, blog, or sometimes while just having dinner with a friend.
I’ve come to a point in my life where I’m thinking about the imprint I want to leave in this life. How I can cause a ripple effect on the world – effect generational change. It’s easy to convince ourselves that if we don’t have a lot of money or celebrity then we’re not capable of doing anything that really matters. We can’t impact real change.
I choose to believe that I CAN do something. The truth is – we all can. Just start with where you are and do what you can. At the end of the day, that’s all you’re responsible for- doing your part.
Well, I’m excited to say that I have clarity on that. I know what it is I’m supposed to be doing. On the anniversary of Plant Food ROCKS, I’m going to announce that change. I will say that it’s not a drastic change. It’s actually a very appropriate next step. It’s a shift from an individual impact to a more community impact. The next chapter for me involves getting to the heart of the community and impacting change with those who really need it most.
So, I hope that you will stay tuned to find out what I’m doing. I also hope that it will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and pursue your own dreams. If you don’t have a dream, perhaps it will motivate you to begin to form one. Until next time…
