It’s good to have goals. Mine are set a little high but at least it gives me something to aim for.
In attaining my goals I practice mindfulness.
Too often my mind is elsewhere and I will throw out something important in the garbage, or turn on the wrong burner on the stove, or overindulge in addictions.
I lost those 30 pounds by practicing mindfulness. I want to lose 12 more by the way.
Shopping starts as a mindless activity scrolling through Amazon or eBay.
Then there’s forgetfulness, forgetting what you just ate or bought.
The pounds and dollars can easily add up.
I start every day early by reminding myself of my goal and my ultimate reward.
The days of living in the right way will add up too.
I am enjoying my new trim self.
We have to watch our self talk too. Be careful of saying I need this or need that.
IOP taught us that the only things we absolutely need are food, water, air, warmth, and sometimes a certain medication.
So no I don’t need a lot of food and no I don’t need to make a lot of purchases either.
I’m in the business of making new habits I guess I could say.
The secret is in becoming less needy overall and meeting our own needs rather than relying on others.
I was weaker when I needed a person.
I am stronger now, less emotional.
I am looking forward to living my best life.
I don’t want to be lazy and take my salvation for granted.
Every day I work on becoming a better person. In competition with myself.
Keep my mind on the present rather than ruminating on the past or worrying about the future.
That’s what mindfulness is.
Becoming a better person is a goal within itself.
