Just 4 Today, I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. I will walk 3 miles, drink 2 liters of water and take my fiber supplement.
This post starts with an affirmation.
Drifting is all to easy for me. I’ve lost whole decades without making progress on my goals. That’s sad but, the lesson I learned from the experience is powerful: Wake up this morning and do something. Right now (I told myself), decide what it is and write it down. So I did.
Your list could (and surely will) be quite different. It’s not my purpose to convert you to accepting my goals. But, if there is something you want to do – something that hasn’t been working in your life then, the only hope you have of getting it done is to do something today.
I’m not going to let the obstacles/challenges/complexities standing (pushing against) me succeed in delaying my progress one more day. So what if it’s snowing – and probably going to snow for the rest of the week? I let that stop me in January but, it’s not going to stop me in February!
I’m going mall-walking.
What about you?
I was told that new readers are confused by this method – my affirmation on top of a thought-piece. And over the last few years, I’ve experimented with a number of different formats for my affirmation and contemplation posts. Those experiments just didn’t work for me – for this blog – and I’m going back to this format. And I apologize in advance for any confusion for new readers.
