I’ve learned that there is no secret formula for success in anything.
Complete academic goals. Dream big, listen, learn, and believe that you can do anything you put your mind to (even if it’s not exactly what you had planned).
Some decide to make a life change mid-career. Maybe it’s to raise a family, or simply take a new direction in life. Imagine the risk - selling, moving, buying, and trying to fit into established circles, finding work, beginning on the first rung of the ladder, and starting all over again in a new endeavour. Roll up sleeves and dig in.
However, all work and no play is no way to live- let’s agree? We should enjoy every moment of spare time, be nice to each other, look forward- not backwards, and not stress about negative words that find their way back to us.
We should embrace our relationships, and be brave enough to let go of the ones that are toxic. We should eat well, indulge now and then, exercise and be good to our bodies. Enjoy silence when the moment presents itself, but do whatever makes us happy, healthy and fulfilled. We have one life; we should live it to the best of our individual abilities. Put to bed the regrets. Find peace.
Now that we are past deciding whether our new year’s resolutions worked or didn’t, we have spring to celebrate. It’s another chance at making positive changes to our lifestyle.
One “must attend” local event that is sure to help us celebrate spring and embrace change is the Healthy Living EXPO on May 6th, 2017.
After a two-year hiatus, the EXPO returns to the Bay of Quinte Region in a new venue, Centennial Secondary School, with hundreds of vendors. Some vendors will be offering various free health screenings, wellness coaching, fitness demonstrations, mindfulness strategies, eco living, naturopathy and alternative medicine, products and services - all geared toward helping us live a positive, healthy life.
New to the EXPO will be a “Foodie Market”, where local chefs, food experts and farmers will be serving mouth-watering dishes and samples.
For only a $2 admission (with 50% of proceeds going to the Three Oaks Foundation) on May 6th, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, attendees will be entered into hundreds of draws at the door, given a free welcome bag to fill with samples, swag and information, and meet and talk to local industry experts. All under one roof!
See you on Saturday, May 6th!
