What a day, oy!
I’ve been struggling for a few weeks; I can’t seem to get my head in the game. I feel distracted. So this week I began an eight-week progression into a new mindset. Hypnotic progression just helps give you clarity and focus, I know, I know what it sounds like. For me, it’s I label it more like meditation, I listen to a new clip each week that focuses on what I may be struggling with. I listen to it each day. This week my focus is waiting. I’ll be elaborating each week while I blog to let you know what’s going on.
Today was my mom’s birthday, I was determined to not set out to have a “sad” day, and I didn’t. I got up did the whole morning routine and drop off and decided to go somewhere different. I like being spontaneous even if it’s only for me.
I sat and looked out at the beautiful view and listened to one of my progression clips. It was exactly what I needed to hear today. I sat for a while after thinking. “Giving thanks for every single thing in my life now and everything that has brought me to this moment. I AM ALL THAT I NEED for all that I desire. This energy inside me fills me with love, confidence, clarity, and peace. I am the one creating my story, no one else.” Today wound up being better than the last few. This whole weight loss thing really is a mental challenge, not a physical one.
The day progressed as I got involved in work, house etc.
I had to laugh at myself as I’m carrying easily a hundred pounds (in multiple baskets) of wet laundry up the stairs, out to my car, out of the car, into the laundromat and then back again because, you guessed it, the washing machine broke. I took it back home to dry because there wouldn’t have been enough time to get the kids. Good thing I put dinner in the crock-pot this morning!
It would be super if I could go, oh I don’t know, six months without something major breaking. But at least I got some lifting in today right?!
One of the things I am supposed to be focusing on this week is waiting. I feel like I spend a lot of time waiting on other people. I’m always here, for everyone; no problem, I can wait. Amy asked me what I thought about that, honestly either I’m not held in the same regard as I hold that person or situation…or maybe I don’t hold my own time as valuable as I do theirs. Either way, I’m working on it. I struggle with this in both my personal and professional life.
So for my friends, whatever it is you’re going through I’m here whenever you need me; but I won’t be missing out on my own stuff in the meantime. Always sending nothing but love. 🙂
I can’t control everything or anyone around me, I can only control how I react to it.
