Did you ever watch a child pound a puzzle piece into place? Or hit a wooden square into a star shape with a peg hammer?
Every diet, powder, pill, gadget and promise is the same as that misshapen puzzle piece. We try desperately to force solutions that are not aligned with who we are causing stress, fear and anguish.
This strategy begins a cycle of starting and stopping every new diet which leads to failing and procrastination.
In time, we feel our problems begin to simmer, yet we are too busy to really get a handle on those issues until those issues turn into “medication” or inability to enjoy life.
Do you want a goal of running a 5k? Progress might be walking 2.5k or it might simply be putting on running shoes in the morning and standing on the treadmill. You never know how life will unfold for you. Our focus is to take the small daily steps that we are committed too. Sometimes we are able to jump and sometimes we are able to crawl. And BOTH of those are ok.
