You Are Worth the Work!

This morning I was reading about the work actor Matthew Perry is doing to help fellow addicts seek sobriety. One of the greatest gifts about the journey of recovery is having the opportunity to be a light for others who are new to the path of deeper living.

Many struggling with addiction- be it food, booze, sex, drugs, or anything else- believe that if they are "good" for a month or that if they go to enough meetings or abstain for a certain period of time, they'll be "cured,"- "all better" or that there was no issue to begin with. I certainly thought that way in the beginning, and then I ended up continuously falling into destructive patterns for nearly half my life!

It's not just about the BEHAVIOR, it's about the THINKING behind the behavior. If you've physically and mentally been operating a certain way for 10, 20, 30 years, why would you think that you can turn it around in a week or a month? Don't be so hard on yourself!

Recovery means learning a new way of living and being, AND doing the work to carry out that new way each and every day. You step into a daily ritual of gratefully rebuilding yourself until eventually, it becomes you, and even so, THE RITUAL CONTINUES BECAUSE IT HONORS THE BEAUTY AND THE PURPOSE OF YOUR LIFE.

Today, I'm thinking of all those who are new to the path. Yes, it is really tough stuff, but you are tougher, more resilient and YOU ARE WORTH THE WORK.



Tangram Fitness News

Tangram Fitness has been receiving some great press lately- what an auspicious start to 2015! 
Check out The Asian Entrepreneur to read about the Tangram Fitness vision and my own transformation. I've also been named as one of the best at-home Personal Trainers in Singapore by Sassy Mama. A big thanks to The Asian Entrepreneur and Sassy Mama!

Needless to say, there's a lot of work to be done this year and so many new things to learn. I'm currently finishing my training as an Addiction Recovery Coach and will soon be launching a new program for women who are interested in exploring their relationship with alcohol, whether they're looking to cut back, quit, or just find more balance. This program is one of a kind, based on my personal learnings through the recovery process; my training as a life coach, health coach and addiction recovery coach; and some of the work that I'm doing currently with clients across the globe. 

There are a lot more health and fitness surprises in the pipeline this year and I'm working with some amazing coaches in the US to see them through. To be the best, it's best to work with the best! This also means that expansion, change and a little refurbishing is necessary. Change is growth! I'll keep everyone in the loop via the newsletter, so if you haven't signed up already, please do so at the sidebar of this blog or on the website homepage.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and healthy Year of the Goat!
