Reinventing Life @60+

When this site went live the articles from previous times were all jumbled together and I was struck by my enthusiasm of how much the alkalinity work we had done had changed my health.  Lost 4o Pounds? All back now.  Felt stronger?  Those were the days.

That was it - those were the days and I wanted them back.  First steps then were to drag out what I knew about alkaline and dig in.  You know how it is with "new" or maybe reborn habits: first push is glorious =filled with the vision / second week the difficulties of change set in.

That is where I am as I start to write.  Read on if either merging alkaline with a typical Western diet OR habit change is of interest...

Whether or not a person celebrates Easter, it is true for most, that spring is a time to reconnect with our bodies and to push back on the sluggish aspects of our lives.  Two ways in which this plays out for me are the focus of these next two blogs: 1) living with HOPE (and understanding in a new way what it means) and 2) alkaline foods.  They both connect in my life as I embrace this spring and move into maximum energy and liveliness for the rest of the year.

I confess that hope has seemed a weak word to me before now – to say “I hope this happens” seemed like fobbing it off on some other aspect of the universe without taking responsibility for doing our part.  Or maybe, rather, just being passive on a situation that was bigger than we were. 

I had it completely wrong!.

I set myself to be who I am
My spirit would not have allowed anything else,
I had to push, t say what I feel t be true and always...

 'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

`Hi!  This is E. Alana James: author, speaker, entrepreneur.  I moved from the US to Ireland 10+ years ago and it was one in a long stream of defining moments in my life - each with a seed of what it takes to continually reinvent ourselves throughout life.  At 59 I felt like a "deer in headlights", which was the first time my image of aging had ever upset my equilibrium.

Where are your dreams taking you?  Its always good to have your eyes on the horizon your shoot for.
