I have decided the only way to make progress in my journey is to know myself better. If I am willing to recognize the real things I believe about myself and the motivation behind my actions I will be able to make the changes I need.
I have been more diligent with my scripture study. One thought that came to me today during prayer and meditation was that I can relate something I learned at work to my personal life. As a retail manager, I train my coworkers to see the sales floor the way I see it. I see every detail, when something is missing or out of place, opportunities to move products to increase sales, missing pricing, etc. I even do exercises with them to try to teach them to see with "Carolyn's eyes".
I realized that I need to improve myself by learning to see the world through God's eyes. I need to feel the same love God has for all of his children, to see them without prejudice or preconceived ideas. Not only that, but I need to see myself through God's eyes, to see my value as his daughter, to see my full potential, to believe my potential to be happy and satisfied with my life without using food to stifle or hide emotions.
I am happy to have this revelation, and continue good habits which will take me one step further on my journey.
