“ Learn to fly, so you can soar! “
Sometimes we get so caught up in the now or the doing of this journey itself we forget where we were when we started. We get impatient that nothing is happening when in reality, something big is happening. Little small changes are happening with our choices ever day leading to those physical and mental changes we want/need. If we keep working we are slowly becoming the person we are meant to be!
This morning on my daily blog jaunt while reading Elle’s another priorfatgirl’s blog I was reminded of this. Right now I’m in a really good place. I'm putting in lots of effort and feeling great most of the time. I have this feeling lately that amazing things are happening in my life. School finally feels like I’m getting somewhere, Life Off the D List is doing well, Life in general is going fairly well. For once I am seeing these changes happening and taking the time to appreciate them. I have big plans for my future and I know there will be lots of hard work involved, but I’m ready to take it on. Now if they could just happen in my time instead of God’s time. Impatient much, yep that can be me at times. They say good things come to those who wait, but it’s not just about waiting, you can not just sit and wait. If you want these things to happen you have to be willing to do what it will take to get there. Sometimes it takes a long, long time. If we keep working at it though it will happen. This is so hard to remember sometimes.
There is a reason this has to be a life style. There are not quick fixes for anything in life. What may seem like a miracle quick fix just about always turns out to be little more than a band aid. Band aids tend to hurt when they get ripped off, I need a permanent fix. To get this I have to change almost everything about who I am. Clearly I was not born a runner, but I will be one. I was not taught to do mindful eating, I was taught when your sad/mad/happy/sleepy/bored here, here is something to make you feel better. I was not taught that its ok to talk about your emotions, but now I do. I didn’t grow up learning balance in life, but I’m finding it. Maybe this is as much a pep talk for me as motivation for you but the truth is if you keep working AMAZING things will happen. Work hard, keep going! Emerge as that beautiful butterfly that lays dormant within you.
Peace, Love and Happy Blogging
