Challenge Assignment 6...Excuses

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

My Excuses
1. Not sure if this counts as an excuse or a reason, but chronic pain issues make it really hard to exercise some times.
2. it gets pretty old and hard to keep going when day after day, month after month, I watch calories, I exercise, I don’t eat junk food and the weight still doesn’t come off. I mean really, if I can’t lose anything anyway, I might as well just eat whatever I want to and forget the pain that goes with exercise.
3. We’re on a trip….I can’t possibly exercise in a hotel room, not can I hurt the hostess feelings by turning down whatever food she is serving.

    How are you going to ignore the excuses? Chronic pain isn't one, but what about the others?

    I can relate to your struggle. I will share some of my thoughts and if it resonates with you, great. Nothing personal if it doesn't. Blessings of Love and light.

    As a life coach, I practice what I preach and take 100% responsibility for what is happening in my life. Yes, that includes my pain.

    It can be challenging when we have only been taught to blame and complain.

    This is how we give our power away.

    I will share what I do when I experience pain. I tune into what it is telling me. The bodies purpose is to get us in touch with what limiting beliefs we have that keep us from living up to our full potential.

    The key is to not judge the pain as "bad". Forgiveness is always the key to release from the bondage of pain. This can only happen when we allow it to be and are willing to learn from it.

    I hope this helps you see that, even though pain is an excuse, it is NOT a sign that you are flawed. The pain represents untruth. The wonderful part of all this, is that if we have the power to make the pain, we also have the power to let it go. It is a process and it takes plenty of love and understanding which we need to willingly give to ourselves.
