8 days on the run.

We think about being on the run has being something scary or suspicious however its all about context. The context of this blog post is all about health and well-being and in particular keeping moving forward.

Last Wednesday

I have been feeling quite lethargic over this last few months, the weather hasn’t been too good, I experienced a great deal of loss last year but I have decided in the last few months that I really need to do something, I have put on some weight over the last couple of years, and my health has suffered quite a lot.

Enjoying a walk in the sunshine

No one said that life would be easy however if you want to enjoy your life then anything is possible, I try to find balance in my life especially in 4 aspects of it: Physical Social Emotional Spiritual Mental

Physical, I try and follow a good diet, sleep pattern, exercise and generally take care of my appearance. Social / Emotional- I have good relationships with people, supporting and encouraging them and being supported and encouraged by them, set clear boundaries and manage expectations. Spiritual – This is more about my relationship with self and the world around me, my character and the way that I behave inwardly and outwardly, living true to the values that I hold. Mental – I seek out opportunities to learn and engage in experiences that are wholesome, read good books, watch documentaries on the subjects I am interested in, wildlife, Sharks and sealife, do some puzzles etc.

Me in 2014
Josie and I a couple of months ago.

So why the title because on the last day in May upto and including today I have completed 10,000 steps plus each day and in the last week lost 4lbs in weight, for the 1st time in nearly 2 years I am close to getting to 15 stone in weight 😊 weigh day tomorrow so 🤞🤞

My mantra for life

I am a 56 years old male living for the last 5 years in Pembrokeshire West Wales in the UK. I have entitled this blog along with my Facebook page as A Life worth giving because when I was growing up I was taught that the only way to get on in life was to be selfish, not even sharing sweets, books, pens or anything. I moved into adulthood with very much the same view of life and entered in my teens a life of alcohol dependency, another very selfish trait, my drinking consumed every waking moment and I saw alcohol as both my best friend and worst enemy, the only real positive was that it never let me down. Life changed for me in 1997 in the month of April when I stopped drinking and started to awaken my feelings, I found that I actually enjoyed life, enjoyed feeling although it was hard and left me feeling vulnerable yet today I am at my happiest, in a very loving relationship and life is good. A life worth giving is about my journey through life but also about being selfless and serving others willingly and with an attitude of gratitude.
