Marshawn Lynch once said, “he was all about that action boss”. And here we are, two weeks into the New Year and how many of us have made promises to ourselves that we haven’t kept?
I’ve always heard change isn’t change until it’s changed. I can talk about something until I’m blue in the face but until I put some action behind it, it’s nothing but empty promises. My word is very reliable when it comes to keeping it to others, but when it comes to keeping it to myself, I consistently fail.
I want to encourage you to make yourself a priority in this year of 2023! Our word is our currency and when we don’t keep it, it stops the flow! There are two of many top priorities I want to be consistent in doing for myself in this new year. One is drinking more water and two is exercising. I've noticed that every morning when my dog Gina wakes up, the first thing she does is stretch really well (I have to do better with this too) and then go to her water bowl and drink lots of water. To help me be more successful with this, I keep a water bottle by my bed and force myself to drink it immediately after waking up. Now, have I drunk water every day for the last two weeks, absolutely not. But I did accomplish this goal 9 out of 15 days. That is a win in my opinion. When I change my habit to drinking more water every day, I will enhance me life.
When it came to exercising, I told myself I didn't care what I did, as long as I moved my body for at least 30 minutes each day. I went to the gym six times in the past two weeks, walked Gina & Ganja three times as the weather permitted, and danced in front of the TV three times. With each of these movements, I was keeping my word to myself. As a side note, I stand at my desk all day while working my day job and stand at the register on the nights I am scheduled to work my grocery job, but I wanted to do something extra each day. I want to be intentional about my promises to me!
Make sure you keep the promises you made to yourself. You will be better for it!
Give yourself the gift of importance this year because you matter! I encourage you as I encourage myself. Let's get up and go up together!
Sending you love, light and positive vibes,
**Always remember to LIVE life to the fullest, LAUGH at everything and LOVE unconditionally!**
