21. This is a long one. You just spent three weeks reflecting on yourself and your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Write yourself a heartfelt, loving intention to help you reach your goal.
An example is, "I intend to show up for myself everyday, in every way to support my physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. I will continue to be a healthy, vivacious person. I will take responsibility for anything and everything that enters my mind, body and soul. I will honor myself."
Write your own intention, but you can also use prayers, essays or motivational phrases from elsewhere. Whatever you write or "borrow" should resonate deeply and be helpful to you as a source of strength and motivation.'
I intend to pursue my goals with an open heart and an open mind. I will allow myself to fail, but strive for excellence. I will continue to meet my fitness goals each day, extending my streak even further. I will take responsibility for my choices and my thoughts in all aspects of my life.
Three walks with Cooper again today. Had lunch with my friend, Peter. He is funny, but a bit of a perv. I think the term dirty old man was invented with him in mind. I also stopped at the library and went to my afternoon appointment. My therapist is concerned as some of my symptoms have gotten worse in the past month or so. Nothing too alarming as of yet, but enough for there to be reason for vigilance. Mental illness can be so devastating, and so misunderstood. I am working at maintaining mental and emotional stability. Some days are better than others... but every day now is better than where I was 2 years ago.
