I am SOOO incredibly excited about today being the first day of the rest of my life!!!  The possibilities are endless and each and every one of us has the ability to make our lives everything we dreamed of from right this minute forward!!!  A year ago, I had a complete shift in thinking that has resulted in realizing that I CAN have the life I have always wanted.  And it started with Tim McCain.  Just one year ago Tim sent all of us to a “Get Motivated” seminar, where the presenters were almost all older businessmen.  I admit that I grudgingly went, wondering what the heck any of them could possibly say that would relate to me – a mother of four who would rather be home making bread and quilts than work full time.  A few things struck me in a positive way and I felt that it had been a worthwhile field trip.  A few weeks later, Tim assigned all of us some required reading. I was not really excited, but  I downloaded the book and began to read.

I liked the first bit and decided to look up info on the author.  I was overjoyed and felt that Tim finally “got me” when I discovered that Leslie Householder, the Author of “The Jackrabbit Factor,” was a Christian, homeschooling mother of seven.  Now THIS was a motivator with whom I could actually relate!  I devoured this first book and then borrowed the follow up to it called “The Portal to Genius.”  I was hooked on the philosophy and concepts being taught – Visualize your future as if it was your present; believe that the how will find its way to you; and express gratitude every day for everything you have right now.   I even signed up and paid for a series of articles from the author and really studied each one, and began seeking more sources on the power of the mind when it comes to one’s success.

At this same time, I had decided that I had had it with an injury that I had been told was “irreversible, incurable and permanent” by numerous specialists.   I knew I had enough knowledge about alternative and natural healing to know where to look to find a better way.  I read a ton and I made some drastic changes, including going on a 100% raw-vegan diet and added LOTS of omega 3 oils to my diet.  Within 3 weeks, the pain was completely GONE and I had full range of motion back!  I had been told that I would never live another day in my life without pain and here I was PAIN-FREE for the first time in 4 ½ years!!!!

I HAD to share this with people and there HAD to be a way I could do this!!!  I had always wanted to do something in the field of alternative healing and had spent the last 20 years in self study in the field of whole-foods nutrition and alternative wellness.  I am raising my children on principles of natural wellness, so I know it works.  I also I knew from what I had been reading the Jackrabbit books that there was a way I could combine my passion for alternative healing and wellness into a profession. I wrote out a personal mission statement, began to visualize the life I had always wanted to live, signed up for school at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a Certified Holistic Health Counselor and gave Photolynx my “one year notice.”

During that year, I launched “Loving Life Wellness,” a private health counseling practice and began building it one health goal at a time.  I am truly changing lives of individuals and families in my own community, state, country and world, one at a time by supporting them in discovering their own path to optimal health and wellness!  It is truly my passion!!

By focusing on families who have children with neurological and auto-immune issues, I see first hand the amazing rewards of what positive, permanent changes can do for these children to help them live happier, higher functioning lives that make them feel good about who they are and what they have the power within them to do!  The transformations are nothing short of awesome!

It is time to bid a bittersweet farewell to all of you!  I am truly going to miss my family here at Photolynx.  I have made friends with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met in my life and every one of you has made a positive impact on my life.  I have learned so much about how a business that runs on a model of integrity can succeed.  I have seen company leaders lead by setting a vision and then getting out of the way.  I have experienced the type of work environment that I hope to emulate in my own wellness center with my own employees and business partners.  I have been truly transformed in a way I will never forget!!

So it is now that I give each of you a “virtual bear hug” and express deep gratitude for what you have added to my life and wish you a lifetime of happiness, health and optimal wellness!!!!
