I have literally fallen into fall. Fallen face first onto my bed, snuggled with my pillow and had to take a much needed inventory of my health. As many of you know I have been the energizer bunny all month long as it has been breast cancer awareness month. I have had many amazing opportunities to travel, speak and to raise awareness. What I failed to do was make my health a priority within the hustle and bustle of this month. I have neglected the one thing I have total control of, and the one thing I constantly remind others of.
As October came to a close I laid in my bed, looking at a night table full of prescription antibiotics, holistic remedies, and warm tea for the numerous ailments that I incurred over the month. I realized I had put myself there. I truly neglected my health and my well being. This is not the first time this has happened and to be brutally honest it probably won’t be the last.
I want to change that behavior, I want to walk the walk and talk the talk. I have no problem telling others that self care should be top priority but when it comes to my own well being I struggle to find balance. This is not easy to admit but I feel this is a step in the right direction. Sharing honestly about my struggles with all of you is also admitting to myself that I am struggling. I have fallen and for a moment lost my spark. Rising from that I am promising to bring the whole damn fire! SO this article is my new beginning, my promise to do the very thing I set out to do – BEAT CANCER!
Today marks 4 weeks until the beginning of the Christmas Holiday, I have a plan in place and all of you are my Fabulous witnesses . I will be updating my progress throughout the month and I hope to inspire someone to make their own health a number one priority.
I am realizing that falling down is human, but it is how we Fabulously Fight to rise up. We are all worth the effort and love.
