For better or worse, I have never been one to choose easy.
Sometimes I wish I could. Sometimes I would love to just leave things as they are and coast -- find a simpler path and collapse into the hammock of passivity that sometimes tries to lure me in. I trick myself into thinking life would be simpler, more light and breezy if I could just take the easy route, follow a path that has already been laid out, forgetting that ultimately it is our own footsteps that are the path.
Taking the easy route often leads us to creating, doing and being less than we are capable of.
We stifle our great potential at the risk of feeling safe/comfortable/fill-in-your-blank. Attempting to force our own stagnation is the surest path to our own suffering, whether that be in the form of loss of passion, crumbling relationships or the development of disease.
And so every once in a while, often when that fear sets in just before we make a big decision, we have to ask ourselves:
Do I want to choose easy, or am I capable of doing what's possible?
We are all capable of choosing possible over easy. Possible is turned into reality by knowing that we are always able to put first what is in our heart to learn, create, try, share, do and be. And it is our responsibility to do so.
Anything is possible when we decide that it is.
How many thousands of great examples can you think of? We know of greatness not because these are examples of easy, but because they were possible.
This is me and this is you. Being who we are today and who we have the ability to be tomorrow means honouring the fact we are all capable of so much more than easy.
The result of trying to do what I believe to be possible has resulted in the most amazing gifts life could dream up.
Once again, I am taking a leap and attempting Possible.
The Culinary Nutrition Expert Program was once my dream to create, to fill a need for this type of education and make it accessible no matter where anyone may live. I trusted that because I felt the desire to create this, that it was possible.
I am thrilled to announce that we are now taking it to the next level, because that too is possible.
We at Meghan Telpner Inc. are building our very own school: The Academy Of Culinary Nutrition.
The school will officially open its doors this Spring and will be the new home of the Culinary Nutrition Expert program along with several advanced Culinary Nutrition and Business For Health Professionals courses taught by me and other experts in the field.
The school will be 100 % online, making everything we offer possible to anyone in the world. A portion of tuition from every course will go to organizations that support people who have likely never known easy, and have only dared to dream of what is possible.
To be kept up to-date on the development of the school and our programs, please sign up for our updates here.
