Your Past Is Just A Chapter,
Not The Whole Book

By Jane Enright
Wellness Expert. Award Winning Author. Inspirational Speaker. CEO at My Super Awesome Life Inc.

Moving forward after an unexpected setback or loss can be challenging. This is because it is common for us to become defined by our past experiences. This thinking, combined with fear of the unknown, can lead to a pattern of rewriting the same chapter of our lives over and over again. Instead of moving on, we are waiting for the other shoe to drop. The good news is that shifting our perspective to a more positive, purposeful mindset can help us recalibrate our thinking, and motivate us to envision and create fresh starts for ourselves.

Your best way to achieve these eating goals is to try and cook more at home.
