Do you want to be a butterfly, a pearl or a diamond?

Saturday, September 08, 2012

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to the blog “Marc and Angel hack life” on the blog of another Spark friend – I would give you a shout-out but I honestly can’t remember who wrote about it. The link is below if you are interested.

Today’s comments from Marc and Angel about “Ten words to live by”, captured my interest.

Their explanation of the word PATIENCE seems really relevant to our Spark journey.

“Using time, pressure and patience, the universe gradually changes caterpillars into butterflies, sand into pearls, and coal into diamonds. You’re being worked on too, so hang in there. Just because something isn’t happening for you right now, doesn’t mean it will never happen.”

I have come to the conclusion that the journey to achieve my goals and aspirations will take time – and as long as I am making progress there is no rush – every day I feel healthier, I am able to do more, I am stronger, I am able to wear clothes that I wouldn’t have even tried on before, I am more active, I enjoy going to the gym and working out, I love riding my bike, I can see and reach my toes, my knees don’t knock together any more, I make great food choices 95% of the time and I have made so many new friends and learned so much on Spark people.

I have accepted that if I keep following my plan, I will eventually reach my goal – the magic is already happening – and I am already feeling many of the benefits along the way.

All I need is a bit of PATIENCE!! After all, it took many years of bad choices, decisions and abuse to get to my heaviest weight – with the right attitude and plans, I know that I will achieve my goals.

Are you with me??

Have a wonderful week making healthy choices, one at a time.
