“If you will change, everything will change for you.”- Jim Rohn
Sometimes we make plans in life, and because of circumstances we allow ourselves to get sidetracked. Distraction happens to us all but as always, it’s about how we respond. I can think of numerous conversations with my clients on simply the matter of their nutrition and fitness plans. They are excited, we set a goal, and they get distracted, and come to a halt. This is a lesson that I consider, even myself from time to time. I learn to listen to my body, and the energy of my spirit. Sometimes, I just have to pause everything around me. Yet no matter what, I always honor myself and choose to the press the RESET button. As long as you have breath in your body, and see you another day, hour or moment, you can press reset. Now at the other end of the spectrum, at each moment in our lives we are the sum of the choices that we decided to make and not make. The outcome of that person is still allowed permission to press reset and change who they show up as. It doesn’t erase the pass, but it could sure enough make for a powerful future. At 26, I have been gone through schools, jobs, relationships, friendships, geographical locations, and several “Floating Periods,” and no matter what, whenever I felt stuck, curious of what’s next or defeated, I’ve always given myself permission to RESET.
This notion is very important because just as simple as it is to get excited and make a plan, it’s just as easy to come down on ourselves if we feel like we’ve came to a halt. The RESET represents at any moment, an opportunity for a transitional mindset. It’s as if you’re telling yourself, “Ok, self, let’s go this time. Are you ready? Let’s Do Better. Let’s Be Stronger.” This is why games are presented in fractions of times (quarters, rounds, etc.) Each block of time gives players the opportunity to triumph or progress from an earlier starting point. No different in the game of life. Never let someone tell you it’s too late to be better. There’s always more time for improvement or reconstructing.
December is a great month to reflect and think about your year up till now? What did you accomplished? Where were you strong? What could you have improved on? Most importantly, what experiences did you enjoy, and what experiences were valuable enough to live thru again?
Remember that in the end, our lives are not defined by the goals we do or don’t accomplish but the experiences we have in between. As long as you are going for those desires in your heart, not giving up on yourself, loving others, and spreading your gifts, in the grander scheme of things your life will be enjoyed.
Don’t sweat the big or the small stuff. Do your best and enjoy life in between. We make mistakes. We fall. We grow. We learn. When it’s time to reset, just evaluate your journey up to that point and put your best foot forward.
