Over the past fifty years I have traveled many roads and learned many lessons – for this I am grateful. Like most people, I experienced painful lessons as well as some that were welcomed. I know that the difficult lessons are sometimes the ones that help us grow the most.
When I was thirty years old, I decided that it was time to make the commitment to take responsibility for my health and made proper nutrition and exercising an integral part of my life. While I was in college I took an outdoor recreation class in college. It was great - I learned to cross country ski, canoe and I learned that I loved to hike.
I am sure I’m not the only person to use the “When I…” phrase. Such as, “When I get out of high school, I will…” “When I lose weight, I will…” “When I graduate from college, I will…” Years ago my phrases revolved around, “When I retire.” It went like this, “When I retire, I am going to write a novel, learn to take pictures and develop them in the darkroom, hike the Appalachian Trail, etc.” I was making a career of waiting to live my life. I was living for my retirement.
In 1999, I read a book that really brought a wonderful lesson home to me: “It’s Only Too Late If You Don’t Start Now” by Barbara Sher. Since then I started piano lessons, completed courses in novel writing course and black & white photography with darkroom. I am not a great pianist, a published novelist, or another Ansel Adams, but I am living my life, no longer putting it off for a later date. The Appalachian Trail will have to wait until I retire because I plan to do it in one six-month period, April to October 2012.
I have been blessed with a career with the Department of Veterans Affairs since leaving the Navy and graduating from college. Recently I retired from a very rewarding position as the Program Director for the Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher House, which is located in Denver, Colorado. What a blessing it was to be of assistion to those who have served in our nation's armed forces and their families who are supporting a loved one who is going through treatment of a serious illness. I am now a member of te board of directors for the Friends of the Fisher House.
I have benefited so much over the past twenty years from alternative healthcare and bodywork modalities. I want to share these gifts of health with others. To this end, I decided to pursue a degree in Massage Therapy at the Colorado School of Healing Arts. It’s my desire, as a healthcare professional, to assist others in attaining the highest level of health possible.
As a trainer in the healthcare arena over the past twenty years, I always stressed that the more you know, the more you can help others. This site is dedicated to sharing information and resources to improve the lives and health of the planet one person at a time.
In your good health and the health of the planet,
