Lance and I are not sports fans. We have no idea what team is which sport be it basketball, football, baseball, hockey or soccer…okay I know 3 teams: Man United (random i know), 49er’s and The Knicks. But ask us any other team, Rangers, Giants, whatever and Lance and I look at each other totally clueless. I bring this up because one of my big realizations this year is how much team work means. I was thinking about all this because after Lance’s super awesome last post (especially the last line about ME…ahem..), I’ve felt super intimidated to write anything! And then I realized (with great relief), I don’t have to be the spiritual sage that my other half is. He can do that! Lance reads to me in bed often at night (be it Thomas Keating, or Joel Goldsmith, or Rachel Remen or the Bible or Ulysses (it’s clear here who the intellectual half is) and then I impart all my nutritional wisdom on him. I coach him through tough times and we cheer each other on whether it’s getting up early to meditate, juice, be focused, stay on our path, make sage decisions, or any of the many choices we face on a daily basis.
I bring all this up cause this team (Lance and Nance) is starting this blog and moving away from CaringBridge. This all started because a couple weeks ago, I really put myself out there and made a video of myself for a contest I entered to win a ticket to a women’s entrepreuneral event in NY (Lance is telling me to post the link, I am ever so slightly hesitant). I didn’t win (boo-boo) but am still going (yay! I leave tomorrow!) but really it was an exercise for me to get clear on something that has been bubbling inside me these past few months. Over the year we have had people ask us, “What are you eating?” “What are you reading?” “Can you give me some recipes?” “What’s your routine like?” A few people have mentioned our CB website read more like a blog and a few people have encouraged us to start one. What will it be about exactly? Well, it is something that is going to evolve, I imagine. But it looks something like this: be healthy NOW, eat well NOW, take care of your body, mind and spirit NOW, make choices on what you need in your life and what you don’t NOW, Laugh MORE, Love MORE and EAT your g**damn veggies NOW! There is so much that we ALL can do to take better care of ourselves before DiS-EASE strikes and we are going to motivate you to do it NOW!
We also both like the idea of moving away from CaringBridge and having you follow us here where there can be more of a dialog and being the opportunist (and optimist) that I am that’s 1000 people reading and participating on this site! It’s also a symbolic move, for sure, one that is full of LOVE, LAUGH(TER) & VEGGIES. Please post comments here rather than on CB.
