We bought a ZOO!


Have any of you seen the show "We bought a Zoo"

This quote was written by Benjamin Mee in his book, which later became a Hollywood film in which actor Matt Damon, played Benjamin.  It is a great story about his Family's obstacles they went through and how they overcame them. The book is great and so is the movie. Very inspiring!

You can read more about his story here

So when I read this quote I had to talk about overcoming our obstacles. 

Maybe an obstacle for you is getting back into working out, eating healthier. 
Maybe an obstacle for you is changing up your exercise routine to get different results and get past a plateau in your weight loss.
Maybe an obstacle for you is getting past any mental block that is keeping you from taking care of yourself physically, emotionally. Like taking of yourself first, so that you have the energy to take care of your family.

So whatever your obstacle is, think of the story of Benjamin Mee, and think of what he said, "it takes 20 seconds of INSANE COURAGE, and something great will come of it." 
Stepping outside of our comfort zones and being will to make a change. 

Once you overcome an obstacle and decide for you and for others around you that you are going to 
BE BRAVE, and take that next step- sometimes we don't know what will come of it- sometimes we do. But we won't know until we DO IT!

So I challenge you to overcome any obstacle you have been facing, have the courage, even if it takes you out of your comfort zone, and find out for YOU how it has changed your life. 

CHANGE IS GOOD!

Thanks for checking in,
