Day 33/100 - I AM .........

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Day 33/100 on the I AM PROGRAM, and I am enjoying myself, and really appreciating the interesting contributions from my Sparkfriends. I am certainly learning a lot.

I am 1/3 rd of the way through my challenge. In view of this milestone date, I have changed my mantra slightly and turned everything into an I AM statement.

I like the words 'I AM' they make me accountable and are different from my usual 'I WILL', they seem to evoke a different mind set in me. For me, all my 'I AM's' need to work in a degree of harmony, in order to live the life that I imagine myself living, so my last line is that 'I AM harmonious'.

My little whack-a-moles are going to stop being the enemy, and they are going to start dancing to a tune that is productive and that I am orchestrating.

"Begin with the end in mind. In this paradigm, you might consider all things as being created twice, first mentally, then 'physically' This is the difference between living by default (letting your situation and circumstances determine your position in life) and living by design (having visions and goals, and taking action towards them)". John W Robertson.

    Love "I am". You go girl! That's what's living in the moment's all about! Forget about "will". Always been such a hopeless word for me anyway. Sometimes wonder whether I'd be able to enter the Guiness Book of Records as the world's biggest procrastinator.

As for the guilt, that's easily dealt with. You just have to go to your local library and sift out books with the title "In Praise of Idleness" and the like. They'll certainly put everything into better perspective instead of this perpetual goading and self-flagellation we all seem to do to ourselves.

Good on you for wresting back control from those damn moles! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I like that too, Habitatvitality! STRONG is a wonderful word, very onomatopoeic!

Allow yourself a blah day, your body and brain will be needing a rest from all the changes and excitement you've been experiencing. The last two Saturday's I've just chilled and slobbed about, without feeling guilty, I reasoned it was my body telling me it needed time to process changes and information, now I wasn't using the wine to do the job.

The fire will come back once you've rested. You are a star!!

    Very powerful blog - thank you - I need to hear some strong, determined talk at the moment! "start as you intend to finish" is another strong saying that I love. I see it as start STRONG and finish STRONG! So staying STRONG is the key. Have a great day today flylady!! emoticon
