Change takes time. The decision to make health and wellness a priority may be building up over time, until one day, BAM! You decide, I’ve had enough, it’s time to make a change. That rush of motivation is like adrenaline that ignites inner motivation to take action. It’s harder to hold onto that focused effort for the long term.
It’s all about the energy you’re willing to reserve for the journey. Finding things that inspire helps, a favorite song, something beautiful in the natural world, a favorite outfit, it can be anything so long as it makes you feel good. Filling yourself up with the things you love helps to draw in the positive energy that helps us all to make better choices along the way.
Today was a hard day, I’m transitioning back to work, and while I get a lot of personal satisfaction from work, I’m sad to be losing this intimate time with my family. My son is growing up, and changes are on the horizon. It’s so easy to lose yourself and health and wellness require attention. If I want to make these positive changes to my life for keeps, I have to find ways to set aside some of that love and care I feel for everyone else for me too.
