The Reason

I had a heart attack 10 days before my 41st birthday. I thought I was doing all the right things, and mostly, I was. What I learned both immediately and in the months that followed was that for me, it wasn’t enough. I had to redefine what a “normal life” would look like if I wanted to see my kids grow up and be the wife and friend I’ve always wanted to be. And I did. And it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought or people told me it would be.

The way you live on a daily basis is the the fruition of a series of choices. From what you eat, to how or if you exercise, to purchases and relationships, what you decide is “normal” can be your life. We are constantly told by our mass media in all of its manifestations what should be normal. This is about finding new ways that are better for our health, our environment, and each other. It’s about being satisfied with our choices.
