Many who know me well, know that I have a love hate relationship with the gym. I hate going, but once I am there I find love in the experience. A couple of weeks ago, I notice my clothes were getting a little tighter, and my love for comfort food was starting to grow, perhaps it was the change in seasons, or schedule, whatever the case, the pounds were starting to come on.
I soon recognized that my level discipline in the gym was not what it once was, I was starting to get in later and later, staying for shorter and shorter amounts of time. Rather than get upset with myself, or become worrisome about my sudden weight gain, I took a deep breath and said, “its time to re-calibrate.”
For me, that is the crux of what makes success possible, my life feel filled with purpose, and my urge to quit wane. It’s my understanding that in life, I am bound to have moments where I gain weight, do not perform at the level I should/want, and nurture my relationships in the ways I espouse, but like all of us, I have the power and the wherewithal to re-calibrate.
In my book, I use the word Grace, but by any word you so chose, its basically the ability to check, to rectify, and correct. To re-calibrate means that I have managed enough self-worth to know that I have the ability to make change happen, coupled with the self-awareness to know how.
So, whether your tempter is food, your finances, friends, and/or family, know that until our last breath is drawn, our ability to re-calibrate at some level is there. Autumn is upon us, the seasons have changed, and we are all invited to see what “changes” (or re-calibrations) we need to make to allow joy, and our full self-expression to manifest powerfully.
