Imagine if you could change your life simply because you made a conscious decision to do so. Not because you had a near death experience, a health scare, or a friend or relative pass away – simply because you made a choice.
Imagine if you didn’t even need to start on a Monday, because a Sunday or a Wednesday were just as good.
Imagine if you stopped believing the stories (*cough, cough* – excuses) you tell yourself to avoid doing the things you say you want to.
If that were possible, imagine what sort of life you could lead.
Now imagine you don’t have to imagine at all, because changing your life really is as simple and as difficult as making a choice.

Mindfulness and putting your own oxygen mask on first mean different things to different people.

For me, it’s exercise.
