We all have desires, goals, objectives, or whatever you would like to call them. This is true whether we actually sit down and define them or not. Throughout the day we might think things like, I wish I could do this, or I really want to do that. And then comes the dangerous part… The self-imposed roadblocks.
If only I didn’t weigh as much as I do. If only I had time for exercise. If only the stars aligned just perfectly, and everything on my to do list disappears, and it’s the second Tuesday in May… Then I’ll start, surely.
The fact is that these things are all doable, in some form or other. Want to weigh less? Much of the equation comes down to healthy eating. And, after all, you are going to eat something, right? Why not make it a good choice instead of a bad choice? “No time” for exercise? There’s not one place you could walk where you’re going anyways? Not 5 minutes to do something? You know, instead of browsing social media, mindlessly surfing the web, and watching reruns.
The stars will never align just right, because even when they do, there will be another reason.
This will happen until we decide to knock down our self-imposed roadblocks.
There are always many reasons to not do something, but we forget the reasons to do something.
We’ve got to make ourselves a priority. Not in a selfish manner, but the opposite actually holds true. The better we take care of ourselves, the better we can care for the people around us. It’s common sense really. If we, ourselves, eat healthy and feel great then we know what to encourage others to eat so they can feel great. If we know that exercise makes us well, then we know to pass along this wisdom to other people.
Make sense? Got roadblocks? Smash them.
