If it ain't broke don't fix it.
I was brought up to take care of my possessions, polish my shoes, darn holes and fix buttons to get the maximum use of each item. Today its called eco-conscious. We called it normal.
When it comes to our bodies we are never the same from one minute to the next. They are in constant renewal. It takes 60 seconds for a red blood cell to circumnavigate the body or 7 years for the body to completely renew itself. As our bodies rejuvenate so must our thinking and way of being.
Last night I presented a workshop called Stop, Reflect and Redirect to the Women's Network at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. It was a snippet of a longer workshop with the intent to take a snapshot of one's life. Habits and our way of being can become stale, leaving us lethargic, uninspired and demotivated. By changing one simple thought or incorporating one new habit regularly we can radically change our lives.
Change your thoughts and you change your world. Norman Vincent Peale
A good friend resisted all my efforts to attend one of my yoga classes by saying, "I don't DO yoga' based on a previous experience she preferred to forget. I assured her Kundalini was different and that she could do all the exercises and meditations sitting in a chair. Despite her protestations her mind was open to change. At the end of the class her radiant smile and obvious transformation warmed the cockles of my heart. This one class has changed her life.
The trouble is, you think you have time. Buddha
This week I invite you to think of one mindset or belief you hold to be true and open yourself to the possibility that it could change. You may surprise yourself.
