I blog for Change…

As I attempt to orient the windy and often treacherous roads that encapsulate life, here are some of my thoughts on the successes, failures and ultimately the hope and positivity in which I strive for a better world. I also hope that I can use this blog as a platform to elevate the social justice issues that are somewhat forgotten in the modern discourse of staying silent on issues that challenge. Sx

DAY 12 – Take Action on Your Plan from Day 11

My Health

I really have to work at this aspect of my life. Even though I have been blessed with good health I have fallen into some terrible habits that I really need to kick. I really need to stop eating junk, exercise more and also meditate more often. I give in to my anxiety and stress a lot of the time and tend to take the easy but highly unhealthy route of binging on whatever is closest. I vow to end this habit and take the more difficult but rewarding path of investing in my future health.

The love I have in my life

I am well and truly going to take more active steps in cherishing my loved ones. I don’t tell them enough how much they mean to me or how they positively impact my life each and every day. I promise to let them know how grateful I am for their places in my life and express my love and gratitude for their influence and practice of unconditional love that they have always applied to my existence. I will never again take you all for granted.

My level of comfort in life

I pride myself on not being a materialistic person, however after discovering how many paris of shoes I had in a recent clear out due to my move back home I am slightly reconsidering that sentiment. I have to remember that material possessions are just that, material. They do not add any value or levels of happiness to my life, they are simply things, and most importantly, things that I can do without. From this day forward, I will attempt to cut back on this area of my life and instead focus on obtaining the things that matter; love, ambition and gratitude.
