Welcome to what I hope will be a randomly recurring feature here, the Reader Weigh-in. Your chance to ‘weigh in’ with your thoughts on a topic currently consuming my thoughts at any given moment.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about change, specifically how some “healthier lifestyle” changes I thought would be extremely difficult turned out not to be that hard after all. I know now that I was too focused on the desired outcome rather than on the process of changing. When I put all my energies on the changes themselves, executing them day in and day out (usually), the results followed. It all makes so much sense now, but I was rather surprised by it at the time.
When I was asked recently if there was one change I’d made that I was most proud of, I immediately had an answer: consistency. My path has never been perfect–it never will be–but, by golly, for the past five years, I’ve been nothing if not consistent. And I’m proud of that!
And now it’s your turn: What change have you made that has you feeling a little (or a lot!) proud? C’mon, don’t be shy!
