What do you see when you look in the mirror. I know one thing for sure I see something very different to what I use to see. It didn’t always look this positive and healthy for me. Once upon a time my life looked very different indeed, and I’m pretty sure it’s the same for a lot of people out there.


I worked hard to get to where I’m at now, and I’m not talking solely about my physical appearance. Over the past 10 or so years I’ve experienced a full metaphysical overhaul, seeing both my mental attitude, and my physicality improve vastly. It didn’t happen over night like a lot of people assume, and a lot of the time for many others the journey is difficult, and filled with temptation along the way.


But today I stand knowing who I am better than I ever have, and happier with where I am also….something that might not have been the case many years ago. All of us have the ability to improve  our health, our bodies, and our brains. But the first step is to have the drive to know that there is no quick fix, if you want to do it right it’s a long time in the making, it’s a difficult journey, but one that’s definitely worth while, and far better than the alternative one.


Even for me 10 years on I still crave things from the past, I still get tempted by junk food in a daily basis (the temptation never leaves), but I just say no these days more than I say yes. I’m not telling everyone to cut out everything bad, I’m just saying once you show your body a bit more respect, and treat it with a little more care, it will thank you for it.
