I'm working on a new life plan that I've put off for... years. It's amazing how many excuses we can make to put something off. Further, our weight can be tied in with life. It gets stuck when we get stuck. When we can clean out the closets, let go of the fear, anger or take a step in faith into the unknown, then we finally release the weight - both physically and mentally - and move forward.
A big issue is my a career transition. I was laid off from what was supposed to have been my "dream job". I knew things were unraveling long before the end, but I didn't know what else I wanted to do. So for a long time I've felt "stuck". I've had several losses in my life as well, so I think I've also been scared to make a move.
So I am writing anything that comes to mind or that I feel about life, work or the way I'd like things to be. For example, I may have been denying that I still want to do some form of my old work as a photojournalist. The thought of it makes me nervous, want to eat, get a stomach ache. It provokes some emotion in me so must be important. But instead of eating, I write. It is hard and I keep thinking of everything else I would rather do than work on it, but I'm doing it...
Have a great weekend all!
