I found myself doing a lot of traveling for work the past couple of weeks, working very long days, all while being in the middle of a fitness Challenge and coaching a team that ranged from the East Coast to Afghanistan. And yet I had developed the habit of my reading three times a day. Okay, I admit it is usually only twice a day, but those times are sacred. Flashing through my cards is becoming one of my favorite habits and when I don’t do it, I feel a piece is missing. I always get a smile on my face when I read certain cards such as “my granddaughter thinks I am smart”, or I feel a sense of pride when I read the card that says “I was a Fitness Champion…TWICE!”
And yet some days it was a struggle to keep the positive thoughts always in the front of my mind, particularly when it related to one particular person! The best part about that seemingly negative issue is that I was cognizant and aware of those negative thoughts! PROGRESS! It is the little victories over time that will eventually lead to winning the war and achieving the life that I have dreamed of! And while I have learned more patience as I have gotten older, I am beginning to have less patience with achieving my goals which helps me to DO IT NOW and pushes me to make progress on a daily basis! Loving the process!
