Its time for action

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

I've spent the last few months doing some fairly heavy work on myself mentally and spiritually. Its been difficult and confronting but also really rewarding.

My therapist awesome and doesn't let me rest on my laurels for long and knows that all I need is a gentle push in the right direction to now start getting my own momentum.

Instead of just waiting as we often do for whatever that "thing" is that suddenly kicks in and we just find motivation I now know I have to create that for myself. That guy who sits in my subconscious and in the past has pushed me to lose weight has let me know that he's not ready to keep doing that if the rest of me won't commit. Probably sounds strange but it makes sense for me :)

I am writing this as I wait for my nutritionist to call in for her 2 weekly visit. Unfortunately I have not been good BUT the last few days have finally opened my eyes so I am back in the swing of things.

So - its time for action. And I feel completely ready for it.

A little quote that I have put up above the jug so I can read it while I wait for the jug to boil:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?

Actually, who are you NOT to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small doesn't serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.


So just shine - alright?

Can't wait to go around and see what all my Sparkies have been up to.

    Hi: This article that you posted is good for my Team: Dealing with our fears. We are children of GOD and HE always is helping us; but sometimes we think we are alone because things aren't like we want. But I know HE never leave me. emoticon
