The ‘What’ and ‘Why’

My name is Jalyn, and I chose recovery. It was the best decision I have ever made.

I beat the odds against immense adversities, and learned lessons no one should have to learn the hard way. Now here I am as a young adult — ready for a change. I spent my youth doing everything wrong, which fortunately taught me how to do everything right. On January 22nd of 2016, I decided to change my entire life for the better. I accomplished my goal, but self-improvement is a life-long journey. This blog merely records my journey and provides accountability.

Months have passed since 1/22/16 — now I consider myself quite happy and successful. Through hard work I managed to change my life around, and I hope my lessons can inspire others too.

What I Want to Change and Things I Have Changed:

  • Achieve my desired level of health and fitness
  • Live a life of zest and vibrancy
  • Engage myself in what’s meaningful
  • Model the behavior and attitudes I admire
  • Live on my values, principles, and moral code
  • Be in the top 20% of society
  • Make a difference in this world

As a dear friend once told me, “May peace be the journey.”
