I have named this March- Make-Over March! I got so excited when March first was a Monday that it just seemed to be a perfect time for refreshing some parts of my life. Of course, I know that when I refresh some parts of my life, all of the other parts benefit, as well. (and all of the people in those parts)
I started with my eating. I still hadn’t left the sugar habit I started during the holidays completely behind and had just been feeling a little bit off in what I had been eating. My guide is Kathy Freston’s book Quantum Wellness. I like her approach as it address more than just the food you eat- it is about wellness for your whole self. Another things I like is that it is for everyone- even if you are doing well, you can easily see how to take things to an even greater level- and she helps you to see why you would want to, in a way that you can understand!
I also decided that I wanted to raise the level and amount of great “stuff” I am putting into my head each day- reading, watching, listening to everything that keeps my mindset in a powerful place and stretches me. Making over my brain in March means learning some new things, and thinking some new thoughts. I have had this movie by Dr. Wayne Dyer hanging around my house for many months- it is called The Shift. I finally decided to watch it- and would now suggest it to anyone interested in looking at their life in a new way. One of the quotes from the move that I love is “you are always only a thought away from changing your life.” It takes a shift in how you look at things to bring about great things!
A make-over doesn’t have to be about huge things- it can be the little shifts the make the biggest impact. You can choose to make lots of changes at once, or just one. My big idea is to have fun with it all, be light hearted- you will fall back, just start moving again. Just the idea that you have the intention and are taking action is exciting in itself! Trust and believe in the process and be open to what happens next!
