Everyone has a dream of what they want to achieve. The question is how badly do they desire that dream, Martin Luther king Jr said I have a dream and expressed that dream. We are all telling our own dreams and working to find those supporters.
That dream may well be a healthier life, it may be more family time, it could be any area we so desire. After many Years one of the strongest desires alongside having twins is improved health. It’s been gradually getting stronger over the years.
Overcoming multiple injuries changing the diet that eat and being more active.
For a long time there was no desire or motivation to change health. It was that day back around 2006 when I was told either You lose weight or You could end up with more health challenges including diabetes. I wanted to change that as much as anything as mum was a diabetic. All the family was overweight and had a unhealthy lifestyle.
Part of that was learning new habits, what foods were healthy. Cutting back on soft drinks where prior to improving my health I would buy a 1.25 litre soft drink and that would be gone within hours. I’d worked for the fast food industry and knew nothing about healthier foods.
It has been that continued desire for improved health that has stopped from going back to the unhealthy lifestyle that once knew. These days eating salad with most lunches and dinners, a soft drink is a treat but it’s rare for a lot. At times a small amount is enough and it’s put aside until the following day.
This desire is to be stronger, healthier and fitter. I have the best health now that I have had in many years now. So much better than knew as a child. Where You could walk in and grab a handful of candy from Your grandparents and eat that, where salads was rare.
Part of my own desire is the twin daughters, the model train layout, aswell as being in ninja warrior shape for my own family. For me that is an amazing dream a long with more family time.
A huge thank you to my amazing wife for life Jenny. The awesome friends and family from mentoring for free, including Ken Klemm and Linda and Michael Dlouhy for Your continued guidance, friendship, support and love.
Bug hugs my amazing friends and family,
Your friend and mentor for life,

Ps. Anyone who is in a relationship started off with a desire for that relationship, at times we are tested and just need to keep turning up as eventually we will win.
