phone calls, conversion, Joyce Meyer,and Miracles

Monday, December 31, 2012

It seems like every one makes goals this time of year. I am no exception. Each year I do so and mostly I fail.I fail because I am not realistic and not converted to the hard work and the "my path" of it. I didn't know i was going to make goals for 2013 when I made the mistake of contacting a workout lady via FB.

I didn't realize she was selling protein shakes and herself. GRHH. But as I talked with her, I realized that I do know quite a bit about health. Not it all, no never. But enough to be doing better than I am. I need to convert myself to a lifestyle and work on it bit by bit.

In the past I have tried everyone's path and then get mad when it isn't working after a month. So I quit. But Rita did say something that stuck: You have to find what works for you. I haven't yet, but maybe this time.

Next I went to church and in the matter of 3 hours got the same message: Goals and being converted to your goals. I don't know if that really was the message there, but it was what I needed.
Then I listened to Joyce Meyer this morning. Got that message again.

I sat down on my bed and opened a notebook. I started with what I wanted. it became my top 10 list and I put them in order of what I wanted. I opened each diet program I have. Which is a lot. Why it has seems so hard, pfft? I think the menu list didn't seem like I could buy these things in a rural area.

However, today, the menus seemed to fall into place. Then I found FB message that helped me find a way to meet these goals.
Small, I mean s-m-a-l-l steps is the way this idea sees that people will meet success.
I got so excited that I wrote a how to essay to myself, but if anyone wants a copy, I am willing to share. Just be aware that it is Christian based. Hoepfully, people like Yoovie can see the point behind it and not get offended with the vehicle how i figured it out.

I am going to try to mix my personal study each morning with journaling about my thoughts, my goals, and my emotions as I proceed each day.
I will make and work on mini goals in each area, and as I master the mini ones, I will move on to another mini one while not worrying about how long it takes. I will keep motivated by celebrating the daily successes. I never have allowed my self to celebrate until IT was noticeable and big.
I think I will "check in" with myself about once a quarter and see if what I wrote today are really the same goals I want. I thing if I dedicated time to write and ponder each morning that these goals or some part of them will be a success.

Miracles don't usually come instantaneously. They come from hard work and struggle in the midnight hour when you're alone and thinking you can't do one more thing.
