Last July when I started this journey I made the commitment to myself to grow within and love the skin that I live in. I promised myself that I would travel; take my health back and always be kind to myself and to plan.
Planning has always been hard for me. My soul gravitates towards being spontaneous with each and every moment I can find; which is comical because I have always planned for others professionally and with family and friends. So, I could never figure out why it was so hard.
When it comes to planning for me, myself and I, it has always felt like suffocation and control. I feel like I would plan and plan, but the action never stayed consistent. What I have found is that it wasn’t about the planning; it was about how all the tools I found were designed. The Planning model to me has always felt so rigid. That’s why I was always searching for the magic plan, that one plan that would roll me into action and solve all my problems.
During this past year I have been breathing and thinking a lot. Listening to myself speak and how certain things made me feel inside my heart and brain. The things I loved I kept and the things that didn’t serve me I freed. I’m still doing this, I believe this is the way I’m meant to plan and live. I feel light, not suffocated. Learning to love myself, be kind to myself and share the message that everyone is beautiful and unique. That the very first step to change is to start with the commitment of anything you set out to do will be from a place of love and kindness for yourself.
So, yes I plan “Swiss” style. My style, taking a little bit of this and that that I find along the way in this beautiful thing we call life. No magic answers, no best way, no E book coming your way, just sharing these words with you and what has been life changing for me in my weight loss , fitness and soul journey.
