in a perfect world...

A while back I sent an email to 100's of family and friends and very few responded in regards to a 5 mile walk to support heart disease. If the topic of exercise is brought up, sometimes I get a look of guilt from those around me. Why is that? I know it's not that people just don't care. But are they afraid? Afraid of letting me see their unhealthy habits? Is it that exercise just doesn't interest them? Being healthy is not a priority? They don't put themselves first? I am not judging, I'm asking why? I want to understand. What made me take the path to a healthier life and NEVER look back? I'm not even sure I fully understand my own reasons. I think maybe because I finally felt proud. Proud of my accomplishments. Proud of what I had overcome. How do I get others to get that feeling and to channel it and remember it every time they walk into a gym, or walk outside to exercise? I want to know.

I don't dislike anyone for their actions/beliefs, afterall it's their life. Plus, I am not perfect when it comes to health either, I have my faults and temptations...we all do! But I would LOVE to rally the troops, get each and every person that I know on the path to their healthiest life, but they will not all follow? What divides us? In a perfect world, I'd send out one email and 500 people would be at my doorstep ready to exercise and live healthy! RIGHT??

I have been trying to get back into the grove and I always feel good about myself when I do. Thanks for the inspiration! I am a new follower from the Patterns of Life Hop. Vicky from www.messforless.net

I don't know if this makes you feel any better, but I usually turn down invites to do charity walks because I'd rather find a charity run. Maybe I'm not the only one?
