Starting From Scratch


"It's Never Too Late, It's Never Too Bad and You're Never Too Old Or Too Sick To Start From Scratch Once Again" - Bikram Choudhury


When at the bottom of a mountain, looking up to the top, "starting from scratch" seems like an overwhelming "mission impossible". The thought of it can leave you feeling defeated and hopeless. All you see is the distance and rough terrain between where you are now and where you would like to be. And you likely have more than one "doubter" validating their own limiting beliefs by trying to convince you to settle for what they would do. But you are not them and they are not you.

If you look closely at the side of a mountain, there are all sorts of pathways that twist and turn, avoiding dangerous cliffs with little oases of pure clean rivers, green grass, and fragrant flowers. These resting spots and "secret passages" are hidden under the thick tree cover as a whole new world that you cannot see from a distance. This world is there if you listen to your heart, and have the courage to travel deep into the forest and climb that mountain. I have been told many times in my life "that is just not possible". And when I had no support, I tried anyways. I set the intention, put the energy in motion and the path appeared. Healing my chronic illnesses was one of those pathways. It took me 20 years but I never gave up. It was really difficult. At times I wanted to quit and just die. But I also had the most incredible transformation of body, mind, and spirit. I experienced some of my greatest joys during those tough years. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times", the balance of the yin and yang of life. Today, at 58, I am physically healthier, stronger, more mentally clear, emotionally balanced, and spiritually connected than I was at 18. I look forward to my senior years. I thought "basic health" was my goal at the top of the mountain. But a foundation of health from which I can forever evolve is now my ultimate prize. The picture below is of me moving hay last winter, working with men half my age, and crushing it! I am getting stronger and more vital every day.

If you are in a position in life where you feel like you are "starting from scratch" and have no idea how you will achieve your goal, then remember that nothing is as it appears to be, when you first glance at it. In the midst of the struggle, there will be beautiful gifts along the way and joys that cannot be imagined. There is a pathway, waiting just for you. It is your life to live. You are never too old, never too sick and your situation is never too bad or too late to begin again. I am here to support you with H.E.L.P. ...
