It has been a struggle...

Monday, October 15, 2012

The past week has been a struggle. A real mind game. I do well all day, then the evening comes, and I eat. There is something going on that either I do not want to face, or am anticipating. I will figure it out. Being honest with myself will show where the problem lies. Writing it all out has teh ability to allow me to see where I am "coming from" with these issues.
The key is to take action. Positive actions, such as writing out possible solutions that can be done reasonably. Get feedback from others about what actions to take. Be accountable.
I have until Friday to soul search and develop a plan.
I have chosen to Spark my life. I have come too far to not regroup and progress. Perhaps I have been trying to be perfect because I KNOW what I need to do to achieve my goals. Perfection will screw up progress, and it is unattainable. Mind game... Only God is perfect.


Work For It

The difference between what you want, and what you have, is what you do. The bridge that spans from desire to fulfillment is action.

Every moment is an opportunity to act. The more of those momentary opportunities you make use of, the more quickly and richly your dreams will become real.

It doesn’t really matter what you say you want or what you wish for. What matters is what you choose to work for.

What matters is what you use your precious and irreplaceable time to accomplish. This day is filled with valuable time, so make purposeful use of it as it comes.

To have an exceptional, fulfilled life, work for it. Work for it now, today, from where you are, with what you have.

You deserve more than just empty wishes, so get busy and give yourself the best of what you deserve. Work for it, and delight in the outstanding experience of bringing your most treasured dreams to life.

— Ralph Marston

Sometimes I feel trapped by the routines I have had to do to survive the past few years, so I am rebelling. Gone far to the other side of teh spectrum. Need to find balance again.
Time. Small effort, actions will lead to balance again.
Time to center. Silence can be a great teacher.
What do I fear by MY being successful?

    Love your blog, I hope you figure out what is going on, I have the same issues sometimes- when I am stressing or anticipating something (and not fully aware of the culprit)... my issue is I won't sleep, as though staying awake may bring about the resolution instead of making it worse.

    I am sure you will figure it out by Friday... and make a very wise resolute course of action to resolve the issue.
