I do not like cheesy statements so trying write a mission statement is a difficult process for me. I can’t bear reading ‘I like pink and I like cup cakes, i like blah blah blah’ even though I do, in fact, like ‘pink’ and I do like ‘cupcakes’ (mainly the icing). Writing likes, dislikes, goals and beliefs when you are 16, maybe 24, is fine… further on than that and I cant help feeling it becomes an emotional, estrogen roller coaster, over indulging the need to share ones opinions.
Having a purpose, however, i do like. Motivating, inspiring stories; factual, interesting findings, I also feel useful. Is this all the same thing wrapped up in a different package? Yes, probably, but its an important one to establish because i have my reservations about writing a blog incase I achieve spectacular blog-failure in the form of a status anxiety riddled need for attention. My aim is to be the opposite of this.
I was a personal trainer for 10 years and was lucky enough to meet and work with some amazing individuals so, I have, shall we say, an ‘elevated’ understanding about health and exercise compared to many. However, I have found fitness is much more about life than about exercise. Ones life needs to reflect health rather than trying to shoe-horn exercise into ones life (and normally failing because it’s boring).
So, my mission is to enjoy the land of health and fitness through all mediums, to photograph it, and to write about it, without becoming the equivalent to moaning/spoilt 8 year old in written form.
Health, fitness and fashion; here’s to keeping it real peeps!
