Matt’s Motivational Monday 12-02-2019
|Happy MONDAY! TGIM!|
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “The secret of making lasting change is to acknowledge and accept that real change takes time and patience. We didn’t get chronically ill overnight. We didn’t gain weight in one week or even one month. Good chance, it may take us longer than twenty-one days to overcome whatever we’re facing. Whether it’s something physical, emotional, spiritual, or a combination, we may need to be realistic in our goals for meaningful change to happen. The first step is getting started!”
― Dana Arcuri
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Well the holiday season is upon us and for part of me this is my favorite part of the year – the reflection, the joy, the peace. For the other part of me it’s the craziest busiest part of the year with so many extra things to do. I enjoy having a little bit more time to do things and clean out my closet and the extra stuff in my bedroom and to de-clutter.
There are a lot of ways to restart your diet or your fitness routine etc. And a lot of people try to make changes during this time. I have found myself saying this year is going to be different. Or this year is going to be better and I think in some ways it can be. But like this quote says real change takes time and patience.
Doing small things every day to make change is the key. You have to be in it for the long haul and understand that life has ups and downs and everyone experiences set backs and obstacles along the way.
AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY:
1) I love and accept myself unconditionally in this moment.
2) Life loves me.
3) This moment is perfect and exactly how it’s supposed to be.
