The Simple Act of Doing ...
Saturday, July 06, 2013
I have not always been a Doer.. I have often in my life been a procrastinator.. a complainer.. a why me.. why do I have to do it .. I can't do it .. it is to hard to do .. I would go through these stages before just Doing... and sometimes I just wouldn't do it.
Since I have been on this Journey I have tried to practice the thought of simply just DO IT !! While I have not been 100% in this action I have come a long , long way and I find it easier and better for my own psyche to just DO IT !!
In the act of doing a simple everyday task without complaining or even asking why me just in my head.. I am better off emotionally..
In the past and a few time even now (but not often) When I don't practice just do .. my self judger comes out.. and wow am I hard on myself and that can lead or at least in the past to the emotional eating.. To stuff my inner judge out .. to say it was okay for me to not have to do something.. sound crazy to me now but that is how it was ..
Now I allow myself to do what I can .. and I don't put all these crazy expectations that I just can't fulfill in one day on myself. I do the very best I can each day and say it was a great day.
I don't put off today what I can do today and I am realistic in all I can and can not get done. I am pretty good but I really don't possess super human will or strength. So I have to be realistic in my own expectations for a day.. This also means if I don't start at 7 am .. then I am off the hook as it would take up to much of my day.. IT means Just DO the very best you can ... it doesn't all have to be today .. but make a honest effort.
The simple act of just doing what I can today ... is a great feeling and one more thing handled to keep that emotional eater at bay.. to not give my psyche a reason to want to stuff it down..
I encourage you to Simply Do what you can Today !
