Post image for Letting Go of “All or Nothing”

Some days, we’re just not feeling 100%. People, events and obligations are tugging at us from left and right, each taking bits of our precious time and energy one by one. On these days, it just doesn’t seem possible to put in our usual “all”… so we choose to put in nothing.

I enjoyed reading this but was hoping to hear more about the models who really aren’t just models, but who are also making an impact in the world through music, art and charity. It would be nice to have details on all the wonderful things they are doing.

Hi fp Julie, Thank you for listening to and being sensitive to readers such as Ana. I appreciate that you deleted the sweeping generalization and replaced it with appetizing, accurate description! This salad looks so delicious, I will definitely be saving this recipe for later.

Ana - Thank you for reading and for bringing this oversight to our attention, the title and all usage of that particular word has been edited.

Thank you so much for this post. I'm struggling with chronic pain and recovery from multiple surgeries. The emotional tole I let it take upon me has opened my mind to what I can do about this and the best thing about it is, it's a learning process. How amazing to learn anatomy through one self, not just a textbook and teachers. It has inspired me to know that a career path in healing is my calling, but I also have let it make me think I'm not worth healing others. It's a process of facing myself which I need. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and thoughts with us.

I completely understand your pain and what you are going through. I used to workout doing the P90X program, and snowboard, ride horses, do Muay Thai kicboxing etc. When I was 27 I was doing P90X Plyometrics, and all of a sudden my leg gave out. I have 4 herniated discs in my low back, 3 in my neck, Scoliosis and Degenerative Disc Disease. I have had 2 back surgeries since then, both of which have failed. I have been through PT, the chiropractor, injections, pain meds (which I am working to get off of now... it's a long process), etc. Through the last 5-6 years (I'll be 33 this year) I have struggled to snowboard (I don't know if that will ever happen) and I have my good and bad days. I picked up paddleboarding this year, and I began the Tone It Up program, which I do in moderation when I can. I have good and bad days... today is a bad day, and on those I struggle to even walk my dog as the pain shoots down my leg and into my hands. I also lost my little brother a few years ago, and I know the stress and pain of that alone has definitely hindered my heeling. I am going to take what you have written to heart, because I beat myself up way too much for feeling like a failure, so I thank you for writing this article. Maybe your words will help me find my way to the best place I can, even though that will never be the same as before. I think my brother would tell me the same thing as you, and until today I think I forgot that. I wish you a speedy and healthy recovery, and as they all say, it really does get better over time, no matter how long that may be.

I can't believe you were here!!! I hope you had an amazing time! Also, you're absolutely right, we do eat lots of fruit, my favorite is pineapple, maracuyá, banana and coconut water.

I live in Utah also! Anyone who hasn't been should visit. We've really got it all here.
Faiza -Oct 05, 2015, 9:50AM
For me, I believe it's the trees that connect me to home, but the universe as a whole. I'm in love with how many there are and their age. But, the mountains, I don't have many here. And the mountains are my call to adventure. I must travel to Utah.
