Patience and Presence
Thursday, April 03, 2014
There are some big changes going on in my life:
1) I am a few weeks away from changing jobs
2) Changing jobs means moving to a new state (Wyoming to California)
3) The move means being away from my family for a whole month
4) It also means selling our house.
5) Selling our house means PACKING our house...
Yikes. It is all exciting, and it is all good...but I do get a kind of "my head is going to explode" feeling when I think about the details of what has to happen. So, I keep pulling back on the reigns and reminding myself that focusing on what I am doing now, and staying calm will be the most effective and least stressful approach.
I know I can do it because it is the same approach that I have taken to my health and fitness journey. Starring down a 113 pound weight loss goal is really daunting. But taking it day by day, choice by choice is what has brought me down by 29 pounds WITHOUT making me feel like my head is going to explode. I clearly see the path to success. I am on that path, and I find new ways to stay on that path everyday.
So, even though these big changes seem a little overwhelming at times, I am committed to remaining patient with myself (and my family), as well as the process, and reminding myself that being present in NOW is the best present I can give myself.
