Like Tracy Chapman said…
If not now then when
If not today then
Why make your promises
A love declared for days to come
Is as good as none
Let’s look at this in terms of self-love. You can make yourself promises all day long and the thought is lovely, but what is really accomplished? Yes, dreaming, planning, visualizing and thinking are all good and perhaps necessary steps in accomplishing our goals, including our health and fitness goals.
But nothing makes a true change like actually doing something! An action is the only thing that will change the synapses in your brain and actually create real, new habit-pathways!
Doing something for your health right now, – that is love in action! That is real love. Take a step in your habit of real self-care, real self-love, and take a giant step onto the life path of being good to yourself right now!
If not now, then when?
And can I add…..
If not you, then who?
It’s in your hands! What is the next step? Any step in a positive direction will do. Any healthy choice, whether going for a walk or a run or drinking a glass of water or planning a raw menu plan for the rest of the day and tomorrow or just your next meal….Perhaps just saying “no” to the next temptation. Maybe the best thing you can do for your health at this moment is getting a massage or doing some journaling or visiting a friend. Only you know!
Keep going with it and watch this build momentum until your life is transformed!
