I’m not going to lie, this has been a secret I’ve been dying to tell, but since the January 2014 issue of FLARE magazine is out, I can now publicly jump for joy. It is a great honour to be featured along the likes of yogis Meghan Currie, Amber Joliat and Juice Food Truck mavens Ryan Slater and Zach Berman. (Truthfully, I was pretty happy my face didn’t appear beside a Canesten ad).
At any rate, the biggest reason why I’m so cartwheeling happy is because the face of wellness is changing. It’s not to say that I don’t like the granola mamas and papas out there, but I will say this – not everyone can relate. In fact I believe that we’ve needed to expand the face of health for some time so that it could be attainable for all. I’ve never believed you had to be 100% perfect to be healthy, because let’s face it, none of us are! We slip, fall and put on our big girl panties and get back on the bandwagon. No more punishment, guilt or shaming – we’re human, we make mistakes and in lies beauty in that imperfection.
So enter in the new faces that play Coldplay during yoga or drive their trucks through the streets of Vancouver selling juice not poutine. Throw in a dash of glam, a bit of rock and you’ve got a culture emerging that people are attaching to by the droves. And why the heck not? Health should be attainable for all rather than be limited to the elite or the hippies.
So if you get the chance, pick up the latest January 2014 copy of FLARE magazine. Everyone featured has been very candid, spoken about their daily routines and have given their resolution reboot that just might help you to create your own.
In the meantime, thanks to those of you who have supported me from the beginning, who’ve recently been following along and more importantly for supporting a new wave of health that’s emerged.
Peace, love, health…and rock & roll baby.
