It Begins with Me
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Everything in my life - - all of it; the decisions, the actions, the goals… begin in my mind. How did I get here on this quest for self-improvement?
What I am so fascinated by is that I never truly realized it before. I often do things on impulse and pay the consequences later.
I failed to realize that I have the power to change anything that I choose to. I can make deliberate, conscious choices today.
Yesterday I received an email that if I had acted on my first response, I would have regretted my actions. I took the higher road and I was able to follow a healthier emotional path in the time that followed.
I need to remember that all of the things that I do originate from my mind. Why don’t I take the time and use it to my full advantage? This way, I can make informed decisions based on my best interest.
The same goes for my food intake and physical activity. I don’t want to sit back after having a handful of dorito chips and ask myself why I impulsively ate them?
Having the awareness that I am in control of my thoughts and my actions sounds simple, but I must really believe that I do.
And here lies the path to self-trust, self-love, healthy choices and forgiveness. It begins with me.
