It feels as if I just celebrated the end of last year and now one month in 2018 has passed. More and more often, the months go by and I struggle to maintain or create new habits and it hits me that as long as I strive to be the best version of myself, I cannot worry about what is pending. It is a constant reminder to love the moment, and not allow my mind to make up a story of how things really are. It is easy to slide into negativity or despair, or take each moment for what it is and keep working at it.
It is easy to criticize and berate myself that I didn’t eat as healthy as I wished, didn’t work out as many times or failed to get more clients, or allow myself breathing room and accept that so much of life is out of my control and that all I can do is be the best version of myself, put my foot forward and take a step towards being myself. In these quiet moments, when I slow down, my mind also slows and does not barrage me with how much I am NOT getting done.
I breathe. I contemplate. I make to do lists. I put it all in a physical form, and then I feel myself loosen, and instead of dread I meet the week with anticipation.
Happy Monday all!
