That moment in life when you realise that things have to change! You are tired of the same old nonsense everyday! What do you do? How do you make the necessary change? How you move from one level of life into another. Do you just wake up and say let’s do this, or do you gradually fall into change? I am one who has never liked change and to certain levels I have even been afraid of change! I get pumped up and make a list of all the things I would like to do differently… and then tell myself I’ll start tomorrow! Tomorrow comes but I still find myself doing the same things and then I tell myself oh I’ll start tomorrow. Of course the trend continues until its next month, next year even!
Let me give an example of weight loss! Growing up I was never overweight, I was skinny all the way from primary school through to my twenties. When I started taking birth control pills I just ballooned and ever since I have always struggled to drop the weight. So when I fell pregnant back in 2011, I piled on more weight. After the baby, I weighed a shocking 85kg and that’s when I decided to work harder to lose weight. I planned to eat healthier and exercise more. I started out great (pumped up!) then after a couple of days I went back to my old ways. I told myself oh well, I can start again tomorrow can’t I? Truth be told, I wasn’t happy with what I saw in the mirror, but what could I do? This weak person who can’t stick to change was holding me hostage! So there I was, unhappy but without the willpower to change my situation!
I can think of so many other things I have wanted to change, things I have been unhappy with, things I have the power to change but sadly enough have never had the courage to. Today I ask myself, what stops me from becoming the person I want to become?
