If we only focus on our destination the end will always seems a long way off. Stepping stones are what gets us to where we are going. Rewards are good for the soul. Breaking things down into manageable targets and rewarding yourself for achieving them keeps you on track.
If your only focus is the destination ( whatever that is) will make you feel like you will never achieve it.
Small achievable targets will keep you on track. People rarely FAIL they simply stop trying. Learning is a step by step process. We often get distracted and don’t take the next step, we need to keep moving forward to achieve your goals.
Sometime the universe steps in to help you just have to listen. For me it has been a picture of a book and a bagel on a Facebook group that lend to a conversation to make me sit up and take notice. All I have had to do is change my mind set!!
You have to set the intention for your life and stop letting life happen to you. I do this now by changing my view of my life and each day. I used to wake up and think this is another day ‘I HAVE TO GET THROUGH’. I now get up and open my journal and put the date and write ‘TODAY IS A GOOD DAY’ i have then set my intention for the day.
At the end of the day I write in my journal my gratitude’s for that day because even if the day had not been all good there is always something good in every day.
I remember all many years ago being told I have fibromyalgia being handed a leaflet and sent on my way. Still not sure what they were saying I had. Although after years of not knowing what it was I know had a name a lable for it.
They started me on pain medication and I had side effect to which they gave me other medication. I remember thinking there has got to be another way but pain consumed my life and I took the pills and had to keep increasing them.
I started to consider the though that food can heal me.
I had let myself become my disease I spent all my time looking up a and reading about symptoms that I could see nothing else in my life. I started slowly doing a few steps on the treadmill as I didn’t then have to work out the half way point to insure I could get home and each time did a little more and with the encouragement of my now ex started eating better and doing more exercise.
I have more recently battle and for the most part won my battle with depression, anxiety and panic attacks to which they wanted to give me yet more medication I have very bad side effects these were some of the worst days of my life but again my thoughts wandered to can food heal me ? Can I improve my health by what I put into it ?
I start to consider that this is a continuous process and I had been well and the hit road bumps and lost sight of what made me and keeps me well. I need to keep up with my list of things that keep me well.
