Enjoy the journey

  • Location: SNOHOMISH,
I'm an IT professional at Providence with many outside interests. A significant life change came when I had to give up my active lifestyle due to multiple joint replacements [two hips and one knee]. I was challenged to find a non-work activity that would replace my previous sports hobbies for mental and physical health. I realized that I'd need to find a strategy to stay as active as possible given my limitations. Suffice to say there have been ebbs and flows or successes and lapses of inactivity. I've learned that one must stay committed to the goal of a healthy lifestyle despite periods where you realize you should have been more physically active. Part of my motivation is to enjoy the journey and not let missing a goal enable me to depart from the journey at hand toward a healthy lifestyle.
