Years ago i was walking through the grocery store and picked up a rose, deciding as I reached for it that I would make a commitment to myself not to buy anything in the store that I didn't believe to be healthy. If I did, I'd return the rose. I was tempted numerous times, but I didn't want to put my rose back! I've continued the process for years and roses continue to remind me to make healthy choices!
That was the beginning of a shift for me in how I cared from myself. Years later, in January of 2011, I designed and delivered an online course, encouraging others to make healthy choices because they deserved the very best. The course was well received, but I didn't do anything further with it until this year.
This is the rose I drew to re-create the Take the Rose Instead coaching course, this time including a poster and a six week course. There is also an application to be certain that people are ready to take the steps to commit to improved health.
