BE GENTLY UNSTOPPABLE
Racing as an elite Ironman distance triathlete, and overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds along the way, including a near-fatal car accident, required a tool box of determination, courage, and audacious commitment.
Janelle knows what it takes to achieve the “impossible.” She also know that if the destination becomes more important than the journey – the result is unfulfilling.
What’s important to Janelle is living her “second chance” at life. For her, that means making a difference in the lives of others by reminding them not to miss theirs.
Too many moments are spent worrying about something that happened yesterday. Planning something for tomorrow. We’re forgetting that everything we need is right here, and that right now, everything is perfect.
The quality of life we enjoy has never been higher – so what’s missing?
We’re pretending that where we’re going is more important than where we are.
We’re pretending that once we’ve done enough, we’ll BE the person we most want to be.
We’re pretending that we can’t BE that person now.
We’re pretending that we can control things we can’t control.
We’re pretending that continuing to choose to live with stress, worry and anxiety is “fine.”
We’re pretending the only way to achieve the success we dream of is “hard” work.
We’re pretending that there’s something better than THIS
The time that we stop pretending – has arrived. It’s time that we stop missing our lives and start living them.
