I like the sound of that!
Me from the past:
I’d get up at around 12.30, sometimes 2pm. Not having very much to do, lying in bed is an easy option. Not having any money to spend, lying in bed is an easy option. Not knowing if others are at work or off work, lying in bed is an easy option. Not eating the right food, lying in bed is an easy option. Not having the healthiest lifestyle, lying in bed is an easy option. Not having a plan, a goal, a direction or a purpose, lying in bed is an easy option.
I didn’t lie in bed all of the time… sometimes I would lie on the sofa.
The easy option is not always the best option. Why does it take so long to learn this lesson?
Me, several years later:
Having lots of money but no-one to enjoy it with, having to buy enormous clothes that only just met in the middle, being breathless after taking one step up, hiding behind words such as ‘if only…’, or ‘why did I?’ or ‘why has this happened to me?’, wanting something better but always having the same.
There’s a message in there somewhere, why couldn’t I see it?
I have an idea of where I want to be, and whether I get there or not is my choice. At present, my idea is just that, an idea. I can see myself being fine – no, well – no, really good! I have a healthy body, a nice selection of friends, and ideas after ideas pop up and keep pushing me further one step at a time. I am motivated to do what I want to do, or think I should do, or enjoy doing. I appreciate help from others, and also help others too. I enjoy myself immensely with everything that I do, and because of that everything happens just right. Things appear just at the right time. People appear at random and I know they are there to push me onwards. I have a clear path ahead of me. I can see the wood from the trees. I have confidence in my abilities, and know that I have confidence in those around me when I need their help. I learn from my mistakes, and do not make excuses when a particular aspect does not go the anticipated way. That is the exciting part. Looking at how to do something different.
Things don’t need to stay the same. Change is good. Being part of the change is even better!
Me in the future:
I’m not there yet, but it looks good from here!
Having clarity, definite clarity, is one good way to move forward!
