Today, My Focus Is.....Me!

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Today, I am spending time on me. I can't work on my issues without spending time by myself and on myself. (Gee, that sounds a little selfish! Yikes!) What I have done today is study the data that I've collected for the past week. I'm looking for patterns in my behavior that I can work to improve. I thought that this would be tedious and possibly a little depressing but it isn't. Quite the contrary! Taking steps to correct areas that need work, makes me feel like I have some control and power over my own life. I can use the data that I've collected to help me formulate a plan and set goals for myself.

Does this process take some time? Yes it does. Am I worth spending time on? Yes I am! Will I solve all of my issues in one fell swoop? Most likely not, but over time I feel that I can be successful in making positive changes in many areas. I plan to take my findings to my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow to share with the group.

What is the biggest perk that I get from this whole process? The process gives me hope for a better tomorrow. I can start taking steps right now that will improve my life tomorrow. The process won't always be obvious to other people but in my own heart and mind, I will know that I am in the process of becoming a new and improved version of myself. That evolution is what this journey is all about!

    Hooray for hope for a better tomorrow! WooHoo on spending time to improve yourself! It is not selfish. Taking responsibility for your self is essential. It's like in the airplane when they tell you to put the oxygen mask on yourself before you help others. You are no good to anyone if you don't take care of yourself.

    Taking care of yourself is not all bliss. It is hard work. It requires staying focused on goals and developing resistence, passing up momentary pleasures for long term success. You are just doing great, Cyndi!! Glad we are on this journey together. I've been struggling with the eating the last couple weeks and knowing you are having success is helping me.-Marsha

    You should and need to take time for yourself because if you don't who else will. You have to take care of YOU that is the only way you will get and be where you want to be in life. Happy and Healthy. Good Luck, and DON'T feel guilty. You deserve it.
