Today's blog is courtesy of the amazing "Daily Motivator" (link included below).
I swear that Ralph Marston knows just what to put there for me on any particular day (but of course some days just speak louder). I find that for the month of May - I have been a bit 'lost' and this affirmation is re-directing me to MY source and MY way.
Too many times we worry about outside factors, we compare ourselves (our progress or lack thereof) to others ... and this my friends is perhaps my biggest challenge... because I feel that on my SP journey I am always left behind or back pedalling that darned ticker!!
April was a pretty good month for me - I spent about 10 days in 150Ville and comparing it to this month - well I only was in 150Ville for ONE day... back up to a dreaded plateau area and currently at 164.5lbs (from my ticker point still showing at 157). Now I struggle with - do I re-set the ticker - YET AGAIN... or do I try to just make it back there again...
I'm going to give myself to the end of the month - which is just around the corner - less than a week away.
I'm going to take some time to re-strategize my plan (eating, working out, etc) AND I have to re-commit to being AF for a streak ... because it's obvious I have lost the handle on having more AF days than not. This of course leads to the weight gain (and it started with my Moncton trip).
I have to learn to live my life including those social events, but returning to my regular life before too much damage is done. I need to stop the Yo-Yoing...
So as I find my way over this weekend... I share the Daily Motivator with you and hope it helps to inspire you to do the same... as we always have to adjust our course as things occur in life... the GPS of life is never constant - the only constant is change and the difference in how we make out in the map of life is all in our ATTITUDE! Think good and positive thoughts friends... Visualize your goal and feel it as if it were here now and it WILL come!
Find your way
Don’t complain that something is blocking your path. Find a way over it, under it, around it or through.
Just because the work is difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Find a way, and you’ll absolutely make it happen.
You can’t expect to be told exactly what steps will get you where you want to go. Find joy and sweet fulfillment in the fact that it’s up to you to find your own way.
Don’t waste your time crafting elaborate excuses or seeking the pity of others. Invest your precious time in finding a way forward.
You might think it would be nice if someone else were to cater to your every need and whim. Yet what your spirit truly desires is to find its own way, and deep inside you know that.
You were born to find your own unique way through life’s richness of possibilities. Your treasures await, so get going right now.
— Ralph Marston
