Don’t Wait for Inspiration…

I do love it when someone or something inspires me. I see a building, or listen to a piece of music, or am drawn in by a story, or get lost in a photograph and I feel so full of life. It is as though a light flutter comes over me, I feel lighter and more awake. I feel productive and ready to create something. This is what inspiration feels like for me.

So far 6/6 days of meeting my goal this week! Very happy about this.

It’s true, inspiration is da bomb. However, sometimes, I have to show up and do the work before inspiration slips in like the life of the party. Doing the work means: all the planning, the preparing, the commitment to my weekly goals, going to WW meetings, taking time to be mindful, and finding activity that I enjoy doing.

So, if you’re not feeling it yet (I get it) don’t be discouraged. It takes time to change your lifestyle. Inspiration will catch up to you; so, keep at this. Ok? I will too because I find the more I put into this process the more inspired I become.

Day Forty…

Thank you to everyone for all the support and love. This was a cool message to get…

Full confession, some of those likes are my own because (especially when I was starting out)I see it as a kind of positive self-talk.  Kindness counts and it meant to be given freely and generously so why not lavish it on yourself?

Saturday is my day to see if I make Lifetime and I’m starting to get a little nervous that it may not happen. I hope I’m wrong because I would really love to make this goal right out of the gate. That would be great, plus it would be awesome to (finally) sit in a free seat.  In the scheme of things, the more important part of this is that I am learning how to live my life in a healthy way.

Yes, you can do this and so can I.
