Self Talk.... begin to live from your heart!

Saturday, October 20, 2012

The past 20 days have been tough for me! I KNOW what works for me. I allowed myself to get off track, and it is twice as hard for me to get back into my routines and good habits. Fortunately, I laid a good foundation when I joined SP a year ago, and I have kept to the basics. The biggest thing for me is to take it only one day at time. I cannot go back to where I was, I can only begin where I am NOW. So, just for today, I am tracking. I am making sure I drink my water. I am trying to be patient with myself. I am not perfect, but I am making progress. I am working on getting my mindset back to where it needs to be. I am not who I was a year ago. I AM better because of SP! It took years to get the point where I was ready to hear what SP had to say. I am taking in all the SP info I can, because it WILL click in eventually.
Keep reading every day. The smallest victory each day will help you through the next day. When you do not have the day you wanted, forgive and realize that every morning is a NEW DAY! A new start! Once the day has passed, it has passed. What happened just "was". There really is no "good" or "bad". It was just a day... you had sucesses, and some not so successful outcomes. Either way, you made it through that day! Celebrate that you did! Pat yourself on your back and choose to be grateful for ALL of that day.There is no failure... only feedback! Learn from how you lived the day, and improve the next one as best you can. Life is going to happen regardless of how we choose to live it... LOL! So do your very best, and let it go!
SPARKing is a lifestyle and a lifelong journey. There is no easy answer and NO quick fix! Your worth is NOT determined by the number on the scales, nor by how perfectly you lived the day. It is not defined by the size of clothes you wear. It is not defined by your fitness routine, or your lack thereof.
DO you feel better? YES!
Are you in less pain than a year ago... physically and emotionally? YES!
Do YOU see visible improvement when you look into the mirror? YES!
Is your inner spirit more at peace now? YES!
So, just what IS your problem?... that's a whole other blog! But I have some thoughts about the solution, and some actions I will take. And that IS another blog! LOL!
SP has given me a new way of looking at life, and how to live it. Despite the setbacks(or what I perceive as such) and my lack of energy right now, I am proud of the forward steps I have made. I have become too content with where I am now. I've "rested" enough. It is time to move again.

Live From The Heart

There is nothing you will gain by pretending to be someone you are not. Be who you are, and live from the heart.

There is great power in your own unique purpose. Dare to connect with that purpose, and let it energize your every action.

Your true dreams and desires are not there to frustrate you. They are there to inspire you and to point the way forward.

You are immersed in a sea of abundance and possibilities. Choose to passionately follow the possibilities that resonate with your heart.

Don’t be overly concerned with what you must get through. Keep your focus solidly on what you have chosen to get to.

You are beautiful, so let that beauty give its power to everything you do. Live from the heart, and be your most magnificent best.

— Ralph Marston
