The Spark Chapter 1

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

reading Chris' story was really inspiring. I am working at a pretty... "dead end" job ad often get down on myself for not having a career I like (even with 3 different college degrees...) and to also add feeling fat and gross to that makes it seem like a downward spiral. I find reading about other people changing helps me to stay motivated to change. I can't force myself to find the career I want, but I can be a really healthy, fit, and maybe even thinner and prettier cashier. I could be the healthiest $8/hour employee there ever was, And why not? I think that a lot of my "problems" in life would resolve if I became healthier, because healthy = happy. And happy people achieve great things!

    The good thing is that you are already thinking about how to change some of the things in your life -- and like the book talks about all the crisscross effect (I love that concept!) I bet as you start to see changes and improvements in your own health and mind, that you might start to see other ways to change your life for the better too. But it all starts with a first step -- otherwise it might be overwhelming to think of all the things you don't like or want to change. Start small -- and build on it!

    You're right - you can't change everything at one time and it seems that you need to feel confident in yourself and maybe you'll find the strength to make career changes when you feel that you have the strength. I fully understand the unhappy work life and it's really tough - keep at it and be strong and you'll get there!!
