Chapter 2: Focus
Friday, January 29, 2010
Although I have made many goals...and broken many of them along the way throughout the years, I never really thought about my personal desires...not just personal goals. I never really thought this was anything important. Especially not important enough for losing weight. Apparently I was wrong. Setting personal desires gives a person something to focus on during his or her healthy lifestyle transformation. So I am going to include a few of my personl desires.
MY PERSONAL DESIRES:
1. to be able to play and run around with my children
2. to not be so tired and angry all the time
3. to be happy for the first time in my life
To be the best mother, step-mother, fiance, future wife, friend, and family member I can possibly be. To do these things, I need to be healthy. I need to work on me. Once I focus more on my health, I can then focus on being the person I long to be for everyone else.
I am happy. I am running after my children outside, no longer needing my inhaler. I am in a very loving relationship, with no trust issues. I am there for my friends and encourage and help those who need it. I live in the present, looking fofrward to the future, no longer dwelling on things from the past.
By making small changes along the way, I should have no problem meeting these affirmations. It will take time to overcome certain things, as I am very stubborn and cling on to the past. This si one of the first things I will need to deal with. If I do not let go, I will never be happy...and I will be the one to blame for this, not anyone else
