Are You A Testament to “Change IS Possible”?

Hello, fabulous readers!

I am thinking ahead to when The Kid arrives … there’s not going to be a whole lot of blogging going on for a while around that time.

I thought it would be neat to have a series of guest posts of people telling their story. I know personally half a dozen people who have made huge changes in their lives in just the last year or two. I have no idea how many others have done similar things, or did them longer ago and I just don’t know about it.

If you’d like to share your story, please contact me at heather at secondchancefit dot com.

Does it need to be an amazing tale of losing tons of weight? No! You can write about changing a bad habit, making healthier habits, how your eating/drinking/exercising/use of chemicals/stress management/general mindset have changed. You can write about the snowball effect: you changed one little thing which led to another and then another. It can be something that was triggered by an event (illness in yourself or someone else, a car accident, etc.), something that you just decided, or something that someone else encouraged you to do that you decided to do. You can write about something else that I’m not thinking of off the top of my head.

In my life, if this request were made of me, I might write about:

  • doing my first 5K
  • doing my first triathlon
  • the gradual change of my eating habits over the past 10+ years
  • my more recent awareness of chemicals in foods, drinks, and storage containers
  • how being a cancer survivor has changed my life
  • how I’ve come to be more at peace with myself and my life and less of a stressball
  • how we continue to clean out/declutter the house and its effect on us mentally and financially

I’d like to have submissions by September 1 so we can make sure any revisions or anything are done and your post is ready to go. I’m due October 15, but The Kid seems to be growing much like I did, and I ended up being quite a bit early, so I’m looking to be ready to go by September 15.

Looking forward to reading your stories!
