My mind has begun to activate the work of imagery in the last 24 hours. I am imagining myself jumping rope (which I am not very good at all), jogging longer distances than my normal very short jog duration, jumping onto blocks (I honestly can say I hate to jump (especially high)) and performing many activities with confidence and delight, as opposed to fear and wondering if I will succeed.
I do believe that often our success’ and our failures begin in our thoughts….and so I am committed to taking my thoughts captive and creating the environment for my thoughts to work in my favor. I find myself doubting my thoughts, even as I go through this process of imagery. It is all very interesting…
This week I will be putting my mind and body to the test, but the training I am going through at U1st Fitness (http://u1stfitness.com/ is about much more than physical health. I have a strong commitment to ensuring I am well-rounded in body (or lean), mind and spirit….
I wonder how you are doing in this area….are you working on all aspects of your development….maybe your imagery starts in exploring your story and putting words to your fears, dreams or desires. Maybe your imagery includes using your voice more and risking being misunderstood. Maybe your imagery is crossing a finish line of some kind…a commitment to see something through….
I hope you will join me in taking your thoughts captive and envisioning something that seems just beyond your reach. I have learned not to just envision those size 8 jeans…but envision the woman I will be when I step into them!
Let the journey begin again!

Trish, what a wonderful entry. I will be praying for you next week while you are away. On Monday I have a lot of time to meditate. Love you much, Aunt Anita
