April Plan - Just Show Up
Wednesday, April 02, 2014
My Plan this month is to Just Show Up....
This might sound a bit odd to some but I've thought a lot about it the past few days. I show up for work, for friends, for my children - even when I'm exhausted. I'm there to support my spouse, my co-workers, my neighbors (which happen to be my in-laws -
), I "SHOW UP" for them. But there are few times where I show up for me.
And I don't mean that I'm taking an hour to work out at the gym or go for a walk or something that is so planned and stringent that it stresses me out.
I'm just going to make a conscious effort every day to show up -- just 1 time. That might mean I log on to SP and spin the wheel or I use less dressing on my salad. Maybe I park in the last row and walk the furthest to the building at work. Or I trade my bagel for yogurt at breakfast -- just 1 time.
I have this mantra taped to my mirror in my bedroom. I see it every morning getting ready for the day.
SP friends - every day just show up 1 time, every day. We might get to a point where we show up 2 times or even 3 times in one day.
Happy Spring - my knees are thanking God we are out of the 30 degree temps and rising.
Peace my friends.
