So, interestingly, I started another blog about eight years ago - also called Harvest the Day. It was just a small personal little project. I started it to share news about the health of the planet. Specifically, how things were getting increasingly worse and what we could do in order to help keep the earth healthy and well. I posted information that inspired me to my core and still really gets me all pumped up. However, since that time (and the six riveting posts that I actually published) I have been constantly doing a lot of self-examination in terms of where my true values and beliefs lie on the 'activism-spectrum.' I'm still not entirely clear on all that but one thing I am increasingly sure of is that there is not much good we can do for others or even the planet - if we do not try to sort ourselves out the best we can first!
I know - this is not revolutionary information. Be the change.. etc. However, it is one thing to say 'sort your life and health out' and another thing to actually DO it! Well, that's why I'm ten times more excited today then I was eight years ago when I was passionately sending out my 'let's save the planet!' posts. Here I am, three quarters of the way completed through a course that has literally changed my life. My life started to change the night I read the curriculum! And now I can take the tools and resources that I've been taught and learning to integrate into my own life and share them with others.
To be clear, I'm not a wild, preaching hippy that will insist you must live on alfalfa sprouts, kale and sunflower seeds. The contrary - I'm here to listen and won't preach a single thing, except that you are worthy of your health and well-being and it is all achievable. I don't know how to say it without being corny. Regardless, the tone I guess I'm trying to set for this blog is that:
1) I'm human.
2) Our health and well-being come first (true well-being).
3) If it's good for us, then it must be good for the planet too.
I hope some of that can resonate with you and if you'd like to hear more about how my new role as a Health Coach can impact you then please get in touch.
Wishing you peace and wellness, deep down inside.
