Today, I am spending time on me. I can't work on my issues without spending time by myself and on myself. (Gee, that sounds a little selfish! Yikes!) What I have done today is study the data that I've collected for the past week. I'm looking for patterns in my behavior that I can work to improve. I thought that this would be tedious and possibly a little depressing but it isn't. Quite the contrary! Taking steps to correct areas that need work, makes me feel like I have some control and power over my own life. I can use the data that I've collected to help me formulate a plan and set goals for myself.
Does this process take some time? Yes it does. Am I worth spending time on? Yes I am! Will I solve all of my issues in one fell swoop? Most likely not, but over time I feel that I can be successful in making positive changes in many areas. I plan to take my findings to my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow to share with the group.
What is the biggest perk that I get from this whole process? The process gives me hope for a better tomorrow. I can start taking steps right now that will improve my life tomorrow. The process won't always be obvious to other people but in my own heart and mind, I will know that I am in the process of becoming a new and improved version of myself. That evolution is what this journey is all about!
