Future Netty

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Daily Visualization

Today, imagine your "future self" giving your past (or current) self a hug. See your future self thanking your past self for having the courage to move forward in this healthy lifestyle journey. How does it feel to look back on your former self with new eyes?

***This was today's Spark-Coach Visualization***

Future Self to Netty Now: Thank you for having the courage to move forward in this healthy lifestyle journey.

How does it feel to look back on your former self with new eyes?
I am proud of Netty Now and I was proud of Netty Then... she just couldn't see it then. She needed her friends and family to surround her in unconditional love to find her inner-love for herself. But, she found it and look at you now. You are still the same person you were then. Just a little more compassionate, a little kinder, a little more able to cry, a little more thoughtful, and A lot more LOVED by yourself.

    Kind of sweet. I think if I go back far enough, the past me needs a lot of encouragement and forgiveness. The not so far in the past me had the courage to take one step at a time towards recovery and persevere. The present me is rocking it. At this moment the future me is taking a nap so I'm going to let her rest... shhhh... she deserves it after all this work!

  I've come to realize that it is the loving yourself first that really makes the difference. It took me a long time to get there; but I'm glad you're there now. I think it will make all the difference. maybe add forgiving yourself to the list as well; that's something I've never done well and I hope you are able to do that too. Especially with the ups and downs of trying to lose and then maintain this weight.
Take care!

The wonderful thing about changing and evolving is to look back and to see how far we've traveled!

    I often envision my current self sending waves of hope to my past self, like pre 2003 Tricia. or teenage Tricia. The Indigo Girls have a great song, "Love will come to you"

    Very cool idea -

I wrote a blog a while back - a letter from my future self regarding the next six (now five, probably) months. Helped to put some things in perspective, and to give me strength.
