Yesterday I was talking to a friend, giving her some advice (hmm I wonder now if that advice was wanted...). Basically I was telling her just to "do." How she's read all the books and she's made lots of plans and at some point she just has to do. How that waiting to for the "perfect plan" or the "perfect starting point" is holding her back from actually achieving what she says she wants.
Well, no sooner had I finished telling this to her, when I heard a voice tell me "You're one to talk. Maybe you should try taking your own advice." gasp! But it's true. I've been doing the same thing as my friend, just in a different area of my life.
I came up with this (what I think is) a great vision regarding some of my "New Year's Goals" & self-love. I've been putting off getting started for many different reasons - waiting for the "perfect day", the "perfect title", someone else to give me the go-ahead. Really what I think it all boils own to is resistance - fear of the unknown (which really isn't that unknown), fear of the work that I know is going to be involved, fear of letting go of...well, a lot of things.
But I know what is on the other side of that fear is the gold. I have to walk through the metaphorical fire to get to the gold. So many times we imagine that fire to be a lot bigger and hotter than it really ends up being too. I want that gold! I can see the gold; I can visualize the life I want. So today I start the journey - My Service To Self Journey - Becoming My Best Me.
I have a basic idea (vision) of what I want to do on this journey. I'm sure as things progress my ideals may change and that's okay too. If you've read my blog before you know that I have worked with Freeman Michaels in the past doing the Weight-Release Program. The Weight-Release program at the core is so much more than just about weight; it's about changing your life. So I've decided I'm going to start this week with re-reading Weight-Release A Liberating Journey.
Each week for however long (I really only have a vision - the plan will just happen); I'm going to work on some aspect of my life that I want to change or cultivate.
This is going to be an exciting journey! I'm so excited to see how this is going to unfold and how my life is going to change for the better. Hold on for the ride - it might get bumpy but it's sure to be exciting!
Play with life, laugh with life, dance lightly with life, and smile at the riddles of life, knowing that life’s only true lessons are writ small in the margin. Whatever you want in life, start today. Not tomorrow - today. Let it be a small beginning - a tiny beginning. Your happiness depends on starting today - every day! LIVE! ~ Jonathan Lockwood Huie.
