Just Do It!
Friday, March 15, 2019
I'm learning to forget about my good intentions because they seem to go nowhere. Instead, when a good health decision enters my mind, I'm telling myself; "Just do It!" and, before I can think about it at all...it's done.
If I hesitate, my mind starts arguing with me and comes up with all kinds of reasonable complaints about why I shouldn't have to do this or do that. Worse, it thinks up things to do that would inevitably reverse my progress. You see, I have an active mind; a bit like an unruly child...but I can distract it...challenge it...focus it...make it accountable and then enjoy the confidence that comes in knowing that I will reach my health goals eventually.
I've a mountain to move...a real mountain, but all I need be concerned with is the very next step. Just one step at a time, one choice at a time, one moment at a time and one day at a time. It takes a miracle to move a mountain and I'm finding that this miracle is actually happening, through faith in the process that I'm undertaking...that it will work and is working, slowly but surely.
Let's just do it!
