"A Transformational Program"
By Certified Personal Fitness Trainer/Health Coach - Karen R. Johnson
What is the Re Start Movement?
Restart is about second chances, "A REDO!"
It's a life-changing system designed to empower, transform and enable you to discover your divine purpose; it's about people taking massive action to take control of their lives in an authentic way and growing on a deeper spiritual level; thereby, changing the course and direction of their lives to become whole and begin to live again!
The Re Start Movement is a simple, yet comprehensive BLUE PRINT on how to recreate your life by addressing every area of your life mind, body and spirit and empowering you to LIVE AGAIN! It's about meeting people where they are through compassion, education and faith; hence, bringing clarity and purpose to your life. You will look better, feel better and have increased energy, vibrant health and vitality so you can begin to live the abundant life Christ promised.
RE START can be summed up in three ways:
Trust in Divine Power – Putting God first in our lives
Becoming Fit from the Inside Out! – Developing a daily routine of whole nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and exercise
Fulfilling God's plan and purpose for our lives

I remember when not to long ago I was planning out my life. Seeing my future with my husband, and I remember not very long ago we were on our date night. It seemed like just yesterday, everything was so perfect. And I can remember sitting across from him and thinking how blessed I was and how happy I was to be out with him enjoying an evening together. And I remember thinking to myself how ordinary my day started out. I can remember how awesome it was that on that very day my husband and I were ebbing and flowing like never before. I remember us planning out our life together, and imagining growing old together. And I distinctly remember him turning (as I drove us to the restaurant) and speaking these very words, "honey it's going to be a great year." And then everything changed, everything changed!
I can also remember sitting back thinking wow! This couldn't be happening. No not to me! This happens to other people. With no warning, my husband of five and a half years was snatched away from me, "MURDERED" in cold blood with "no time to say goodbye!" I just lost my soul mate. After, I remember going through a period of time when I lived in constant fear. I couldn't wake up, I had to take medication to go to sleep, I couldn't eat, I lost 16 pounds in a week. I was in excruciating pain from emotional and physical stress, and I couldn't do anything to change my circumstance. I didn't understand why this happened "to me, to us." I remember feeling like I was hurled into a dark pit. I remember walking around in a daze, numb and for weeks being so confused, my mind scrambled; I remember the helplessness and hopelessness I felt during those dark hours. I was in so much despair it was difficult to think past my next breath. I remember being angry at the enemy (Satan), myself, and my husband. I remember being mad at the world and feeling sorry for myself because this shouldn't have happened. I remember thinking "what am I to do about my situation?" How was I going to go on living without him?
Then all of a sudden, I don't know exactly when it happened, but it seemed to come out of no where. It was as if a light bulb suddenly went off and I can recall sitting back one day and thinking I can't live like this anymore. I can't blame the world. I can't blame myself, it wasn't my fault and it's time for me to take massive action and change the course of my life. I knew I couldn't change what happened, but I could change the outcome. I remember saying "Karen you can wallow or you can pick your self up and fight." I remember pondering, there is a reason why I'm still here, and there's a reason why I wasn't killed that dark cold night. I remember saying to myself, "Karen, it's time to practice what you preach. What Satan meant for bad God meant it for good." And that my friends, is when I set out to find the good and that is when I began to LIVE AGAIN!
How about you? Have you ever felt like this? Can you relate? How did you recover or are you still wallowing like I once was?
Looking back, having made my mind up to LIVE AGAIN, I didn't know where to start. I had never been through anything this horrific, but Instinctively, It was as if I was being guided step-by-step what to do first, second, third and so on. God was directing my steps and He was putting people in my path to help bring back clarity to my life and my purpose. Well, its seven and a half years since that traumatic night and the loss of my beloved Jon, but it's a new day.
So, let's lock arms, it's time TO LIVE AGAIN, IT'S TIME TO RE-START YOUR LIFE, it's your time to shine my friends.
