Focus on the Positive (SparkCoach Assignment)

Monday, June 24, 2013

Today I am to list at least 3 things I've accomplished recently to further my journey to health:

1. I've switched my focus from numbers (specifically, the number on the scale) to focusing on my health.

2. I've sent a goal to attempt at least one new recipe each week.

3. I'm doing research on meditation for dealing with chronic shoulder pain. (Xrays reveal nothing, and I am not willing to undergo exploratory surgery.)

4. Continue dealing with & dumping repressed issues from my past.

5. Continue MOVIN' IT at least 10 minutes, twice a day.

6. Learn to like me.

    Great assignment!

Actually I have been getting a gentle urge to write a list of what has changed with me during my time at SP & especially over the past few weeks.

I believe it is important to review how far one has come.

God bless!

    Wasn't there a song about that? "Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative, Latch onto the Affirmative, Don't Mess With Mr. In-Between". I think it was Bing Crosby.

    Not sure which I like better, the pic of the little girl, or the advice to sleep lots. emoticon

I already like you. That's the easiest one for me on your list.
