Change, the moment it happened( I think.)
I’ve written in blogs a few times that if you think your life’s going no where that maybe it’s time for a change and that change is good.
Easier said than done, I know, and no one can just wave a magical wand and say to themselves, “there I’m changed”. If only it were that easy but anything worthwhile never is.
For me personally, (and just to let you know I’m still in the process) the decision to make some changes came one Sunday morning roughly 4 years ago. I was outside, having a smoke and a cup of coffee, the summer sun beating down on me, sweating out some alcohol from the Saturday night before and thought to myself, “I don’t like this anymore” and “NO” this didn’t happen overnight and to this day I’m not an angel but yeah, “Life is good”.
Friday night’s I’m exhausted from a week in my career but it’s a good exhausted. Being a Personal Trainer is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. That being said, partying up a storm on a Friday or for that matter, on a Saturday night is the farthest thing from my mind.
Like I said, to this day I’m still in the process of change. It takes patience and time. I’m no Psychologist and can’t tell you the proper steps to take to make this change and I don’t really think anyone, even a Psychologist, can tell you exactly how to do it. What worked for me isn’t necessarily going to work for you. We’re all different, that what makes us human.
This process has to come from the deepest parts of your soul, a decision to make some changes, no matter how small at first. Improvements don’t happen overnight but they will. It’s all up to you.
Change is indeed a scary scenario but well worth it. Peace.
