Moments of Clarity

Lately I have been reading a sweet little book by Miranda Kerr entitled Treasure Yourself.  It is an easy "pick up/put down" sort of book.  One that has short chapters and "to the point" points.

I don't know why, but last night it helped me have what Oprah would call an "ah ha" moment.  A moment of clarity if you will.  It was all about making statements that are more meaningful. 
Like this:
instead of writing down 
 "I wish to be fit and healthy"
write down
"I am on my way to being fit and healthy".

Now at first, this rearranging of words seems a bit simple and trite, but as I lay there and let the idea sit with me a little, I really liked it.  I am going to try this out and see how it goes.

You see it had been a perfectly normal and uneventful Saturday night, like most of them are in our household - sitting with hubby half-watching a DVD while enjoying a couple of glasses of wine.  I realised that this was not what I wanted (not the hubby - he is my rock!).  I meant the regularness of wine and in-activity and lack of engagement with each other.  

Wine was put down, a bath run and I made myself think about what it actually is that I do want.  Simple ideas can lead to big changes.  I started on this journey (I hate that word, but alas can't think of another one)... earlier in the year, but struggled to commit and get the results I was after.  Thanks to the book the ah ha moment was only I can make myself accountable.

So with this in mind, today I start over.  It is going to be difficult, but I am now committed to myself to get there.   I don't know where it will take me, but hopefully to a stronger, fitter more balanced happy me.  The best me I can be.
