Monday Motivation: If you don’t like it, change it.
Posted By Charissa Talbot On June 24, 2013 @ 10:27 AM In Featured,Monday Motivation | 10 Comments
I’ve written about this concept before in my Nothing Changes if You Change Nothing post, but today I have a bit of a different message for you.
I’m always asking you those big, life-changing, scary questions. I know. Sometimes I feel like this is the even more fun part of reaching out to you all than even teaching you about nutrition and health.
Maybe you are waiting for the perfect moment when everything is “right” so that you can make that change.
Maybe you’ve been telling yourself that now isn’t the right time to make a change, because of situation X, Y, or Z.
Maybe you aren’t sure that a change you make will actually lead to the desired result.
Maybe you’re worried that you won’t make it to your goal, so the idea of even making a change to get started it completely freaks you out.
Today – what we do today – is what will affect the future most, not thinking or worrying about the future.
Some pray or set positive intentions for change. Others simply work hard on a path to change.
Whatever path you choose, choose something. Sitting still in the moment may be helpful when you aren’t sure what you even want out of your life. But, when you know what you want, don’t sit paralyzed. Make some kind of change – big or small – to see what may happen next.
No one around you wants to hear you complain. Sure, your friends are there to listen or provide a shoulder for you to cry on now and then. You’re human, and that’s perfectly normal. But are you just complaining over and over without doing anything about it?
Your friends may not be the ones who want to tell you that they’re tired if hearing it, or don’t know what else they can tell you. So I’ll do it. Listen to yourself next time you’re talking to (or texting) your friends – are you informing them of what’s going on in your life and asking for their support? Or are you just venting and complaining? Again, we all need to do the venting and complaining now and then, but realize when the time comes to snap out of it and just make an action plan.
Based on the questions I get all the time, as well as some things going on in my own life these days, where’s what I’ve got for you today:
Tell me about it in the comments below.
