Enjoying the journey

Friday, December 28, 2012

Today I was listening to a great podcast about changing limiting beliefs. Renee Stephens gave this quote,

"The reason you want every single thing that you want, is because you think that you'll feel really good when you get there. But if you don't feel really good on your way to there, you can't get there. You have to be satisfied with what is, while you're reaching for more."

In order to get what we want, we have to enjoy the journey.

It was really important for me to hear that today, a day in which I woke up panicking about my recent weight gain.

The truth is that when I'm on a healthy path and I take care of myself, it's actually easier and more enjoyable. And I can enjoy today, even if I've gained some weight. I can enjoy the healthy choices I'm making now and focus on all the good around me. As I remember how great it feels to take care of my body and eat foods that make me feel great over time, life feels a lot more manageable.

    I'm glad that you have the outlook that you do. You are an inspirational spark friend for sure! Don't worry about a few pounds. Ups and downs are part of the ride, and losing weight can be fun! I'm right with you on that! ;)

    Sure "liked" this!

Remember that ol' song . . . "It's not getting what you've got, but wanting what you've got". I'm always having to remind myself to enjoy the journey, every day: because the maintenance journey has no destination!!
