If I’d Only Known

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone gave us the roadmap to a perfect life? What would you have done differently? How would your life look if you knew then what you know now? I have been thinking about that a bit lately and this is what I came up with.

No regrets

I don’t have regrets because the life I’ve lived got me where I am today so I can’t say I’ve wasted my time. I had a very rewarding professional career from which I recently retired. I have a rich, full life with people I love and who love me. I have twice come back from life-threatening experiences, stronger and better off. But there are things I might have done differently.

If I’d only known

I would have been more fearless
I would have had more adventures
I would have had more patience
I would have been more involved with what is important to those important to me
I would have treated my body better
I would have learned more about nutrition much earlier

If I’d only known…I would have started my coaching practice as a side hustle much earlier

I’m one of the lucky ones

I finally know what I want to be when I grow up. Not everyone gets the privilege or has the insight but I figured it out for me. It would have been nice to know many years before I got here but then I might not have realized I had arrived. Life happens in divine timing I suppose. We don’t necessarily know what that timing is however until we have the benefit of hindsight.

I have no complaints and I believe I have lots of time and opportunity to write the ending. But we never really know that, do we? You know…divine timing and all.

As a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, I work with women who face serious health challenges like heart disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes, or who have been diagnosed as having a precursor to a serious health issue such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood sugar. I help them make food and lifestyle changes so they can get healthy, live longer and enjoy a fuller, happier, more energetic life.

    I found my passion and I have made it my career too.
