Happy 4th of july

Friday, July 04, 2014

Independence day!! A day to be thankful for the freedom we have living in this great country!

I have joined the"half size me"community. If you don't know what it is it is a great podcast and community of people that weightless and getting healthy as their goal. Heather is a great leader who has lost 130 lbs I urge everyone to check it out
She was blogging about how she turned her life around on 4th of July. She used independence day as her day to break free from things in her life that was binding her down

That is what I am going to do. No more" stinking negative thinking" concentrate and write down one positive thing each day that I have accomplished. No more feeling like I am ugly or fat. I am free to change my life and the things that hold me back

Her last meeting meeting talked about saying can't vs won't. Instead of saying I can't do something say I won't or I choose not to because.,.. that is bringing the ownership back to you. I can't jog? I won't jog because I am afraid my knees will hurt. Well, then take ownership and start with slow intervals.

This whole can't vs won't is freeing for my life. A whole new concept.

I am going to try this all day today. Every time I have a negative thought I am going to turn it around into an" I won't because" statement

This will increase my self confidence because I will realize anything I want to do is in my control

Have a great 4th everyone!! emoticon

    Lovely blog!! Enjoyed reading about taking ownership of ones actions or lack of them! I agree that one must realise that we are in control here, not our feelings... :-)
