now." - INDYGIRL a.k.a. Beth Donovan stated in the dailySpark blog
As August draws to a close, surprising lessons have been learned.
Evening Snack Report
∎ Put it on a plate.
∎ ASK: 'Am I hungry?' (if I feel I want more)
∎ Wait 20 minutes (if I want more)
I have done this for a month, with positive results. I will keep going with this as long as I have an evening snack.
I have always heard "find your passion", all these years I have looked for it. But what I haven't done is to look within and be proud of who I am. I was always trying to be what others wanted me to be, living up to others' expectations. Ah... I learned to be compliant, because of consequences. I have been rebelling instead of living.
I'm still following KO1215's Seven Day Inspiration Series. Day 4 was "Your dreams are just waiting to be lived." Between KO1215 and INDYGIRL, my stuffy head has been swirling.
The following come from INDYGIRL's blog:
“Don’t try to find yourself, create yourself.”
“It’s never too late to be who you’ve always wanted to be.”
It’s how you see yourself that matters...
When I read “Don’t try to find yourself, create yourself.” it was like someone opened a window and I could breathe.
What do I want?
What do I believe? That is who I am.
“The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.”
—Frank Loyd Wright

I'm off to live my life....
