I’m going to call this girl Roxy.
Roxy likes to complain about her bad decisions and situations that arise from poor decision-making. These complaints are not just the type of complaints that resemble a 2 minute debrief to her babe-status clique over group chat but the type of complaint that reaches twitter followers and the odd online stalker or two. Roxy has her day-to-day drama but feels like she has no control over anything in her life. Her sometimes weekly gym session always seems to get delayed by some other super important plan and her after-work wines are starting to look like morning-after struggles. Let me add in the fact that she loves the sneaky treat now and then which satisfies her sweet tooth, her savoury tooth and her whole gob in general. Let’s cut to the chase -She’s now upset that she’s gaining weight. Poor Roxy, Life is rough ain’t it? Rough indeed.
I had a chat to Roxy. Roxy wanted to change her lifestyle. Change what exactly? That’s the question Roxy needed to ask herself. It’s not just passing by the thought that you want change – if you’re committed to it, you need to be completely honest with yourself with “where am I right now in each area of my life?” then consciously think “where do I want to be with each of these areas?”
We can get like this sometimes, just like Roxy. We over-think our situations and end up not taking any action at all to get to our vision for ourselves.
Just a simple “where exactly am I now, where do I want to be and what am I going to do to get there?” Don’t complicate it. Don’t over think it. Just start taking little steps day by day that are aligned with your vision for yourself and you’ll be closer to that vision every time you make a tiny step. It’s better to move slowly than not move at all.
