Do the Best YOU Can!

Thursday, July 26, 2012

It's all we can do right? Like the Four Agreements state:

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Donít Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you wonít be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Donít Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

I had a close call to caving in to my commitment to a clean week yesterday as I was experiencing lingering headaches most of the day - which I think are partly due to my body detoxing. I managed to avert it by distracting myself and inviting PERSISTENT_GIRL over to do my Turbo Sculpt workout with me! It was emoticon to do it together and we plan on doing more together - to encourage and motivate each other.

I am hopeful about a possible 'meeting' tomorrow with someone who seems to be genuine... we'll see. I like his proposed meeting - for us to connect at the Sailing Club - as we both love being by the water - there's one big 'point' for him in my books! Fingers crossed - I'm hoping this guy turns out to NOT be a toad and that he's what he says he is and his pics are really him.

Gotta have faith... and keep on trying - in all things! Life, SParking and Love!!
