Just checking in.
Every once in awhile I send a text to my kids. “Hi, how’s it going. I’m just checking in. I love you.”
I sometimes interrupt my own self to send this little note. Someone once told me that if somebody pops into your head, you shouldn’t ignore that. That somewhere, that person needs to hear from you. Lots of times when I have sent this little note, I get a note or a call back saying, “Thanks Mom, I really needed that. How did you know?” This is my note to you, “Just checking in, how’s it going?”
How are you doing? How are you feeling? Do you need anything from me? Wanna talk?
We set out on our Q4fit.com journey to be a partner in our collective journey to a healthier life. Part of that is making sure that we are there for you. I have found a lot of fulfillment in writing these blog posts. For me they have been a new journey and as I sit each week to reach out and put my thoughts out there for you to read them, I hope beyond hope that what I am saying is being helpful to you in your journey. I am so excited, that for me, I can be a proactive member of a community that wants to continue to improve ourselves. I get to research new things. Learn things that I have taken for granted my whole life. I get to put into ‘regular people language’ stuff that is sometimes way more confusing than it needs to be. I am growing and learning as part of my journey and hopefully helping you in yours.
We have people in our world that are quite complacent. They are happy to stay just as they are and work really hard not to upset their routine. They want to remain the same because for them it works. I never want to be that person. I want to continue to learn and grow. As a stay at home mom for a very long time, it was really exciting to see my kids come home from school and show me what they learned that day. As they got older, it got harder for them to share their excitement because they were not excited to be in school any more. As they found that there was so much more learning to do outside of high school and they went on to study the things that were important to them, that excitement came back. Now, it’s my time to find what excites me and as it so happens, writing to you is it. Not just any writing, but writing about our own weight loss, better health, nutritional journey.
So, checking in, what are you excited about these days? What wakes you up and makes you happy? Yes, I know, it’s the alarm clock. And yes, I know most of you have a J.O.B. to attend to, but there are a few more hours in the day beyond that. What else do you do? What new sport do you want to try? What new cooking class looks fun? What new book has been looking back at you?
