Hi my dear Spark Friends:
Yes, I'm finally back home after another long week of over eating and gaining more weight again. But I'm so HAPPY to report that I've just logged-in my breakfast and I'm really EXICTED about getting back to healthy eating, exercising and having a balance in my life in body, mind and spirit.
My problem right now this morning is that I want to do everything NOW...read my books, catch up with you guys, unpack, exercise, grocery shopping..etc.etc..my list is long but I need to take one step at the time and not get too overhelmed...what I get done today is good and what I don't, can wait till tomorrow.
But I did get to read the following from my book "If Life is a Game, These are the Rules" by Cheir Carter-Scott, Ph. D.
Six basic steps to executing any change in your life.
1. Awareness -- becoming conscious of the pattern or issue
2. Acknowledgment -- admiting that you need to release the pattern
3. Choice -- actively selecting to release the pattern
4. Strategy -- creating a realistic plan
5. Commitment -- taking action, aided by external accountability
6. Celebration -- rewarding yourself for succeeding
No lasting change can be made, nor any pattern released permanently, without going through each of these steps. In order to facilitate your process of change, you will need to learn the lessons of Awareness, Willingness, Causality and Patience. Once you master these, you will most likely find the challenge of identifying and relasing your patterns far less intimidating.
WELL....this really hit me this morning and it was just what I needed. Tomorrow morning I will be reading on AWARENESS.
So, gotta go dear friends...more to do on my list :)
Have a fantastic day!
Love & Light
