Will my future self thank me or will she curse me?
It is really all up to me. My thoughts, choices and actions will lead me one way or the other. Which way will it be?
My intention: My future self will thank me as I turn my health around. She will thank me as I nurture thoughts that guide me to make choices and take actions that are supportive of a healthy, strong and vibrant body.
My intention: My future self will thank me as I live my life from my inner truth and guidance. She will thank me as I step out of my comfort zone and align myself with thoughts, choices and actions that are guided by love and courage instead of fear.
To know that I have the power to change deeply ingrained patterns of self-sabotage and strong limiting beliefs is a gift that I’m so grateful for today. To know this gives me so much hope, a renewed excitement about life. I smile as I write this.
You see, not too long ago, I had lost hope. All that I could see was a future laden with physical pain, limited mobility and being a burden on my loved ones. I felt utterly powerless to change the path I was on. I was deep into food addiction. self-hatred and body rejection. My present self definitely cursed me, left, right and centre for my past choices and actions and for my present choices and actions too. Oh she cursed me, alright! There was no escape from such a curse!
And then things shifted. Thank goodness, things shifted! That shift came to me in the form of intermittent fasting. It’s been over six months now and I’m in such a different place than I was before I started my intermittent lifestyle. It was what I needed to break the spell of food addiction. To be honest, the spell isn’t fully broken yet. However, it is no longer all-encompassing as it used to be. Food addiction has been part of my life since I was a child. That is over 50 years! It makes sense that it would not disappear from one day to the other. I know that it might take a while and I know that clarity, mindfulness and courage will get me there.
It is a journey and for me, it is now a journey filled with hope. I fully intend for my future self to thank me!
(P.S. The shift has shown up in the form of intermittent fasting for me. I’m fully aware that shifts show up in many forms. Everyone is on their own unique journeys.)
What about you? What does your future self calling forth from you? Will she/he thank you a year from now, ten years from now?
