Ep041: Have You Thought About Your Health Lately?

How much time do you spend thinking about your health? Do you consider yourself healthy?

Do you fall in to the trap of thinking “health” only relates to your physical body?

In this week’s episode, I talk about the many types of health and offer an invitation to improve your overall health.



Episode Notes:

I referred to Episode 040: Facing Fear with the Power of Your Passions.

I also invited you to learn more about the Healthier Habits Starter Program.


Each week I share another (hopefully) inspirational message to encourage and support you. If you’d like me to e-mail you a reminder when a new episode is published (every Tuesday morning), just fill in your name and e-mail below. I’ll take care of the rest.

Reduce Goal Achieving Overwhelm

Have you ever been working on a project and moving forward nicely and then suddenly stalled? Or perhaps you had a great idea, but couldn’t quite get yourself started.

I know it happens to me. In fact, it happens fairly often.

I think it happens to most (if not all) of us.

What we do when that happens, we we stall on our journey to achieving our goals, is what matters. It can change the outcome of any work we’ve put forth in achieving that goal.

Today’s goal setting tip offers a way to free up your brain power so you can start moving forward again.

Ep040: Facing Fear with the Power of Your Passion

FEAR: Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise. Which approach do you take when facing those nagging voices of fear that whisper in your ear?

Do you listen to them? Do you question them? Do you challenge them?

In this week’s episode of Reflections of a Recovering Ugly Duckling, I share with you my struggle with FEAR.



Fear of success. Fear of failure. Fear of people talking about me. Fear of not measuring up. Fear of planning a party that no one will attend.

There are more types and levels of fear that I can list here. Some rear their ugly heads only in certain conditions. Others remain a constant presence in our hearts.

Fear can be vanquished, when we have the courage to face it.


This week I am challenging the voice that whispers, “What if no one comes?” as I invite you to join me in a new program I’ve developed.

If you are interested in improving your health, you are invited to participate in my Healthier Habits Starter Program. I’ve been planning this for months! I have some great tips and tricks to share to help you focus on the habits you can develop to become healthier and happier.

Aim High and Stretch to Reach Your Goals

Michelango said, “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

When you set your goals, do you aim so that you are guaranteed to achieve them? If you do, I have a question for you… where’s the fun in that? 🙂

Goal setting should be scary and exciting. It should make your heart race and your inner voice scream for you to slow down, take a breath, be “realistic!”

In this week’s goal setting tip, I encourage you to dream big AND support the people around you who dare to dream big.

Ep039: Become Who You Want to Be

Sometimes an amazing thing happens when we are living our lives. We transform into the person we always wanted to be. Take a few minutes to think about who you were, who you are, and who you want to be.

It isn’t too late to start a new hobby, a new athletic endeavor or a new career. If you want to “be” someone else, now is your time to do it!



Have you paid attention to the transformations you’ve gone thru over the course of your life? Have you had identity shifts as you’ve walked your life’s path? I would love to hear about them, if you are interested in sharing them! Comment below with your greatest transformation story!
