A way of life I have recently adopted. It came to be on July 31, when the big fat sky lit up alongside the "blue moon" and I decided to make some personal goals for myself after reading an article on Elephant Journal.
I'm not one who believes in "hocus pocus". I do however believe in creating your own destiny
No more days should be wasted waiting for things to magically change. We are the ones that can create those changes as we have all the magic and creativity within. We just need to believe in ourselves, to be brave and rise like the phoenix from the ashes and we are capable of soaring. We can achieve everything our hearts desire with a little hard work, determination and—more than anything—self-belief.
On July 31, I practiced some yoga in the glow of the blue moon, and with a haunting storm on its way, I have made some choices:
1. I made a commitment to run three days a week, and as of last Friday, can proudly tell others I can run 5km. I am now looking forward to the 5km run Seamus and I signed up for next weekend.
2. I made the decision to terminate my working contract, early, in the data storage industry, in favour of taking on a new contract in the public transit industry. An industry I know nothing about, but with a company that is growing quickly, where I have the opportunity to work under the guidance of a successful business woman.
3. I am bringing back a bi-weekly house cleaner. She starts in two weeks, and I can't wait.
4. Cleaner eating. I have successful lost 30lbs since March 10, 2015. I feel fabulous and want to explore other areas where I can adapt a lifestyle change. It's important to me to make choices that can be forever. If it's something I know I cannot commit to, and know it's something I will not be able to sustain, then it's not for me. So while I will not eliminate animal products completely from my life, I'm going to be very choosy about what I consume. For example, if I'm going to get a burger, it better be the best damn burger.
The decision has been made, that while I have others who need my time and attention, if I continue to ignore my own health and happiness, I will one day wake up at age 60 and feel like crap-o-la. Well, that will not happen to this lady. Instead, I hope to wake up at 60 years of age, throw on my rockin' bikini, and head over to the Sandbanks and wake board with the best of them.
