SW 198.2

emoticon MONDAY "LIFESTYLE ACTION WORDS" - 25 points
1) Mindset ~The way I think. I dont always think to my potential regarding "me" and let self doubt in. I tend to think hot/cold, in/out, up/down ... I neet to reqaluize a balanced mindset.
2) Support ~ People who help or challenge. I need a form of structure (a path to follow). I don't often ask for help. I do realize success in being challenged.
3) Visualization ~Seeing what isn't there. I have trouble with this. I don't know what I want to look like, but know I want to feel better.
4) Acceptance ~Taking possession. I need to take possession of and embrace who I am, every step of this journey, realizing that where I am at any particular moment is the right place if I am working at achieving my goals. Im wandering in this...Its a stumbling block, big time.
5) Obstacles ~ Things to overcome. I am my biggest obstacle at the moment, however, I am making right steps to avoid/overcome obstacles. Short term goals are keys.
6) Time Management ~ Scheduling. Making time for what is important - Fitness, nutrition, and overall wellness. This is a platform to spring to success.
Beyond Comfort ~Making myself vulnerable. Works in unison with Acceptance.
Stress Management ~Breathe in, breathe out.
7) Rewards ~Recognition. Small goals/milestones are worthy of notice and remembrance. I am working on identifying meaningful rewards to document my journey.

    When you Accept who you are at the moment that defeats the self doubt. That being said is easier than being comfortable with yourself. Self doubt is a problem for me too. We can conquer it together!

    Honest reflection of where you are and what you're working towards! Remember... You don't have to see the BIG picture in detail to know where you wish to be! Life is a canvas...Splash a little paint here, add a few brush strokes there, blend some colors together, and before you know it the subject matter has developed into a complete masterpiece to be cherished! emoticon
