30 Days Challenge 16, One Thing

Do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself.  
– Ralph Waldo Emerson


Take a moment, step back from your concerns, and focus on one thing: You have one life to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted. Sounds simple, but when you really focus on it, let it seep into your consciousness, you realize you only have about 100 years to get every single thing you’ve ever wanted to do. No second chances. This is your only shot. Suddenly, this means you should have started yesterday. No more waiting for permission or resources to start. Today is the day you make the rest of your life happen. Write down one thing you’ve always wanted to do and how you will achieve that goal. Don’t be afraid to be very specific in how you’ll achieve it: once you start achieving, your goals will get bigger and your capability to meet them will grow.

I don't have just one goal, do have have goals at all? I'm a rather lazy person. Any goals I've had are gone with the wind I guess. I think it's fine.. everything is fine the way it is. I don't like changes, never have really. But life is all about changes and the one thing that has to change is me. Not only my inner me, but my outer me as well. The one thing I really should focus on is my huge overweight body. I want need to excercise more, loose the weight and eat more healthy, not only to loose weight, but also to stay on this beautiful earth for my boys. My dad died age 60. He was healthy, thin too, but he got colon cancer and died 5 months later. I know I am lazy and I hate myself for it. I know I had to start yesterday and still... 

The second thing I really do want to do more is meditate. I keep 'forgetting' to. I'm so busy on social media, writing, editing and so on that meditating is forgotten or put aside. That's not good. 

I know it all too well and still I'm too weak to start changing myself. I wish I had a magic wand I could wave, not to make me instant thin but to give me the courage to start to do what I have to...

1: did you talk to my sis? She's always telling me to read it too.
2: I've never really read the Secret. Started to but the belittling tone got to me and I thought I already did most of it anyway. :p
3: okay I'll read it! Jeez! ;)
