It’s 6:34 a.m. on the last Sunday morning of 2014. I have to get up at least 2 hours ahead of time to drink a full bottle of water and eat a banana.
The water wakes up my digestive system and the banana gives me the nutrition I need before I start my class.
It’s cold outside. Oh no, not like your cold if you’re in the Midwest or on the East Coast.
I’ve had a California Christmas, as the song “Mary Mary” echoes in the background.
So my cold is 37 degrees outside.
The voice in my head tells me that I could stay in bed and write blog posts … like this one. Then the voice is quiet. It doesn’t have a very convincing argument.
My intention is stronger.
I decided on Christmas Day that I would attend my yoga class—Bikram Hot Yoga, that is—four days in a row.
I had already been twice this week, the Tuesday and Wednesday before Christmas, but of course I couldn’t attend ON Christmas Day.
So here I am, on the last Sunday in 2014, with three days in a row and the voice starts.
In truth, I can’t stay in bed. Here’s why.
I’m in a Mastermind class for one year. I made a hefty investment in my business and myself to be a Game Changer for 2015.
One of the things I’ve learned that is changing my reality is that it is not a matter of how I feel, unless I’m legitimately sick. Rather it’s…
- A matter of who I AM for myself.
- About how I show up for myself, and
- About keeping my word to myself,
My word to myself was that I would attend yoga four days in a row—actually as many days as I have free without having my son tag along and wait for the 90 minutes of the class. Don’t get me wrong; I honor my feelings and listen to them, they just don’t solely determine my actions. Instead, I use them as a gauge for where I am in my vibration and energy.
What about you? It’s the last Monday of 2014, depending on when you read this. How will you stand for yourself in 2015? What do you have in place to honor your promises to yourself, first, so that you see the results in your life and business that you deserve?
Let me know. Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear from you.
I wish you a fulfilling, prosperous, happy and healthy New Year.
Much love and respect,
