I can not believe that my week at U1st Fitness is drawing to a close. The week has been filled with surprises at every turn and although there is a sadness to leaving, I am feeling prepared and equipped to succeed at home. I have been able to identify a number of reasons why my progress towards wellness has been slower at home than I would like. One very key element was a lack of vision. I had one foot in the camp of success and one foot in the camp of apathy. If I hit my goal I would marvel and feel ecstatic and if I did not, it was ok because I didn’t really think I would make it anyway….now, as I type that out, I realize how self-defeating my lack of vision has been to my desired outcomes.
Tonight I enjoyed a few hours with my U1st friends making vision boards. We were invited to consider the vision we have for ourselves. This could be communicated in many different ways and the end product is a delightful visual of my vision!
We were also invited to identify our vision as to how we wanted to relate with other people. Life is about loving and being loved and it feels so right to clarify my vision both for how I am going to live and how I am committed to live with those I love and care about….
I wonder if you have taken time to crystallize your vision?
I wonder if you have put words to your vision and invited someone to encourage you and remind you of that vision on days you lose sight…
Consider these thoughts on vision and awaken your soul….the clarity of the picture is refreshing!
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision. Helen Keller
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. Carl Jung
