Her daughter, Kate, told us to think of three events in our lives that we consider being peak experiences. That will give us insight into what we truly believe to be important values. Since we give meaning to the events in our life, this affects how you perceive your world around you.

Now, she said, go to your bank and credit card statements to see what how you’re spending your money. Are your expenses aligned with your personal philosophies and goals—or do they indicate a difference between what you say you want and what you actually believe is true.

Holy cow! What an eye opener! There are many kinds of well-being and financial is one of them. By looking at the statements, I saw a big dis-connect between what I believed and what I actually was doing.

Try it. It will help you get very clear, and you’ll connect with the very thing that drives you. You’ll identify your purpose.


Irene Ross is a certified nutrition and health coach who helps people get off the diet roller coaster–to lose the weight, keep it off and let your
“fabulousness” shine.

“Healthy weight is a lot more about simply walking away with a list of so-called good foods and bad foods. It’s about a lot of things. Like learning how to balance blood sugar and knowing about the connection between hormones and processed foods and the adrenals and thyroid; and like learning how chronic stress and sleep deprivation affect our weight–among other things. And people need to know that everything feeds us; for instance, career, relationships, self-care, because if just one thing is out of balance they’ll always be, well, hungry.

“In short, I don’t just focus on the action (i.e., list of foods), but on the proper ecology (root problem) so that real and lasting transformation happens.”

Author of the forthcoming book, 25 Ways to Fire Up Your Day: Increase Energy, Get More Done in Less Time, Balance Your Life,  she believes that a wellness-centered family includes everyone–even the 4-legged furry kids, Irene writes frequently on the topic of pet wellness. She also has a pet wellness blog:
