Healthy with Jodi

Reflection…a year in review…


    I sit in quiet in the morning and collect my thoughts and decided to copy my thoughts to my website instead of just my healthy blog and email newsletter.  It’s that important to for my voice to be heard.  And not heard because I want praise, but because I want the world to feel different about the future and realize it can be better but it starts deep inside each one of us.  We change no one but ourselves.  If we looked inward instead of blaming others for our situation or circumstances then this world becomes a softer, kinder place to live in.  Sadness would be replaced by happiness. I’ve seen it, I believe it.


    My Midlife…is my best life…as I reflect on this year, I have come to the conclusion that I love everyday I wake up and open my heart and mind to enlightenment. Truly believing that everything in the universe is divinely orchestrated and placed in our paths for accepting more love and growth in our lives.

    So…. I am no longer waiting for a special occasion; I burn the best candles on ordinary days.

    I am no longer waiting for the house to be clean; I fill it with people who understand that their presence is more important.

    I am no longer waiting for everyone to understand me, it’s just not their journey.

    I am no longer waiting for the perfect children; my children have their own names that burn as brightly as any star.

    I am no longer waiting for the other shoe to drop; It already has and I survived.

    I am no longer waiting for the time to be right; the time is always NOW.

    I am no longer waiting for the perfect mate who will complete me; I am grateful to be so warmly, tenderly held by the light in the sky in the form of the Sun, Moon and Stars.

    I am no longer waiting for a quiet moment; my heart can be stilled whenever and wherever it is called to.

    I am no longer waiting for the world to be at peace; I unclench my jaw and breathe peace in and exhale uncertainty.

    I am no longer waiting to do something great; being awake to carry my grain of sand is enough.

    I do not need to be recognized; I know that I dance in a holy circle.

    I am no longer waiting for Forgiveness. I believe I am enough.

    I asked my daughter if she had any resolutions and she said it was just another day Mom. I told her I can make a new goal just like I can any other day of the year and I redirected her thoughts and challenged her to make her yearly bucket list. What are the things she wanted to accomplish this year, where did she want to do, and how did she want to feel, who did she want to surround herself with?

    I know I want an adventure every month. I know I want to wake up grateful everyday that my body works and carries through another day of inspiration. I know I want to see change in the world, and I know that starts with me and my heart. It’s a daily choice of how great we want to be. I like the circle of life I dance in and plan to expand this year. As I open my heart to more love and acceptance the world does change….one soul at a time.

    I’m grateful for all those that believed in me and trusted me with their health goals and emotional health.  I am grateful for all the tender lessons you’ve taught me, for touching my heart, enriching my life and allowing me to be apart of your journey.


    Much Love and Light in 2019
