Chapter 2 from The Spark

Chapter 2 from The Spark book is about focus. Learning your motivation for your goals, making sure you have the right goals for yourself, and seeing and believing in your goals.
My motivation for losing weight comes from many places. When I'm being completely honest with myself I realized that I want to feel sexy. I had a very strong and healthy libido in my early twenties. As I began gaining weight I no longer felt comfortable with the way my body looks. When someone touches me I can't help but think that they are grossed out by how my body feels.
I also want to be a good role model for my kids, in particular my daughter. I want to be the example of a healthy self esteem and healthy life style.
I want to be able to have full range of motion in my body. I don't want to play with my kids for a few minutes and be out of breath. I want to be active and enjoy being active.
Lastly, I love to clothes shop! My mother and I used to do it all the time together and it's just not as much fun when you have a hard time finding clothes that fit or you can't stand the way you look in those clothes.
There's more, but those are the big ones. Those are what drive me. Those are what I need to post up reminders of throughout my home so that I remember why I'm making better choices.
I think the goals I've set for myself are appropriate for me. I've set goals before that were based on what I thought I should have or be. Now, I look inside myself and set goals to create the future I want!
This path I'm laying out for myself is important to me. I will continue reading materials that help motivate and guide me to where I want to go. One of my goals is to take pictures, some of the things I want to take pictures of are the things I want to create for myself. I will create collages of the things that are important to me and the things that I want. Most importantly, I will continue to change my inner voice to be a possitive one that supports me and loves me and treats me with gentleness and kindness.
Divine love will flow in, through, and out me.
