Great work from Jon McMahon – inspiring way beyond diabesity

Something that is great about having this blog, that is not directly connected to my business (that I do because I do not want others to suffer through ignorance as I did) is having the freedom to change direction and share what is on my mind that I feel will be of benefit.

You may have noticed how excited I have been about the iThrive series and seeing its links with mood and therefore with bipolar disorder.

This morning, I am feeling very much as the creator of the series shares in an email I just opened. I’m simply going to paste most of that email here and ask how much you have needed to (or will need to) change your life to truly be the best you can be?

“…one of the biggest factors in reclaiming our health and our life, is…

CONNECTION

Every day we have a choice… to open our hearts to the world or not.

To care about other people enough to give to them…

To care about ourselves enough to take care of ourselves.

It’s a risk to open our hearts again… to love again… and to try again.

We can fail.  And we can be hurt.

For years I hid away from the world.

Well…

Today…

Today, I choose to LIVE!

I choose to LOVE today.

I choose to feed my heart, my cells, my brain and my soul with the care, the love, the nutrients, the fresh air, the movement and the connection that it takes to truly thrive!

And tomorrow?

I will wake up and great the day anew.  And I will aim to honor this one precious life I have, and my new-found mission!

I will do my best to be an example to you and everyone I meet.

Some days I may fall…

But when I do, I will not retreat in shame and self-blame.

No, I will rise up, and remember who I really am.  And the great work I have to do, and the people I get to serve.
