What If? or I Am?

Have you ever asked yourself the question “What If”? I know I do on a daily basis. “What if that person doesn’t like me, what if I am not good enough, what if I fail?”.

This phrase is often centered around negativity and self doubt. What if we made changes right now to take care of ourselves instead. To know we are worthy to be kind to us. To change our thoughts from “What If” to the powerful “I Am”.

I started off this new year with a resolve to make some huge changes in my life. Health, relationships, finance, attitude, positivity, gratitude, and so many more little steps that will drastically change my “What If” statement to my “I am” outlook. Even if you haven’t started to make any changes, and you feel like you missed out on New Years to make these resolutions, make them right now! Make the commitment to the empowering “I am”.

I am only telling you all this because my mother, who has been a a huge inspiration to so many people, asked herself these questions 2 years ago. She started a blog yesterday called “What If?”. You have to see it to believe everything she has done. Read her story and I promise you will be inspired. Here is the link:


Also subscribe to her blog if you want to be part of this journey to better physical and mental health. She truly is amazing and has helped every single person in our family, as well as friends, to get in better health.

It took a lot of persuading on my part for me to convince her to share her story because she didn’t feel like she could help anyone. After I told her to look at the combined weight loss of her own family, and then ask herself if she really didn’t think she could help anyone, she decided to give it a try. I am so thankful she did!

I hope you are having a great start to your 2013. I hope you are with me in making our lives and this world a better place for all of us.

I am leaving you with a quote by Jim Rohn “Goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There’s no telling what will happen when you act on them.”

I can tell you this from my own personal experience. I promise you, nothing will happen if you don’t act on your goals, but you must start out by dreaming the positive thought of “I am capable”. I appreciate the opportunity to turn my “What if’s” into “I ams”.
