Review of The Miracle Morning, by Hal Elrod…

I have read many articles and books on self-improvement. I have gleaned lots of knowledge, most of which I have either completely forgotten or have filed away for another time. This book is different. It was exactly what I needed to get me going in the right direction.

After finding this book, I got involved with the Facebook Community, which led me to the next book, The Miracle Equation, which I am currently reading. This has been huge for me. I am making changes that I have long thought about but used excuses as to why not to follow-through. I have had the privilege of being part of Hal’s first live training, and most importantly, I feel amazing.

I am starting to understand why it is so hard to change our behavior, and realizing that the only thing that is truly preventing me from having the life I really want, one filled with not only happiness but great health, is me.

It does not matter if you read one book, or a thousand, if you do not apply the information you have learned, you have done nothing but obtain knowledge. I highly encourage you to read this book, and then reread it, and implement the information you learn. There is a 30-day challenge at the end…what do you have to lose?!

What if you do not want to buy the book – okay, start the Miracle Morning “Crash Course“. It is free. You get 2 chapters of the book, there is a video training and audio training. It will get you started.

Here is where you can purchase the book:

One Year Later…

A year ago today I said “good-bye” to my mother. At first, I felt like it was not real, like I was walking around in an alternate universe. I felt the pain, but I kept it pushed down. For a few months I thought I had it all under control. That is until I realized that I was sleeping more than normal, and that is saying a lot for me. I would wake up after 10 hours of sleep, have my coffee and be ready to nap. Naps were usually three to five hours long, and I would be ready for bed before 10:00 pm. I started noticing how easily I was crying. Continue reading

Breaking the mould…

Today my sister helped me with a difficult and emotionally charged task. Today I let go of a lot of Facebook ‘friends’ that were not actually “friends”. As hard as it was for me to let go of some of these people, some I have actually been following for 13 years or more, it was necessary. Facebook should be about being connected to people you care about and really have some sort of connection with. Yes, there are still a few I have not actually met, but we chat, and have become friends. The others, I can follow on Instagram and Twitter, if I so choose.

There is no growth without change…

I signed up to be part of this nationwide women’s dietary study, and all of that starts for me on Monday. I did this because I know I need to make changes in order to get healthier, and accountability might help me stick with it. I also know that for at least the first couple of weeks, I will want to quit. I am not looking forward to the next couple of weeks, I dread them. However, I do look forward to them happening and getting through it. I just have to stay strong…something I do not have a good track record for doing. Continue reading
