Babying the inner child
Friday, July 26, 2013
Inner child, you say...psychobabble! Well, maybe. I'll share this anyway. When I am content and at peace inside, I stick to my goals so much easier. So I wondered what keeps the inside soothed and nurtured. After some reflection and tracking of my own I discovered this: there's always some kind of connection with my childhood. The things I loved, warmed my heart, gave me joy and the people who made me feel worthy, loved and made me laugh are more often connected to the contentment inside. This is now my secret to staying motivated. I play! I let go! I let my hair down! I do "inappropriate" childish things because it makes me happy and keeps me going. I've lost 12 kg in total since this discovery. Weight issues are more than just body issues and discipline. It's about babying the inner child. What do you think? Silly? That's ok, I'm losing weight and feel really good! See ya, I'm off to play. Today, I'll be splashing some paint on a huge piece of paper in all the colours I have! Beautiful! Can't wait!
