I have so many things that I want to write down and share with you. Sometimes, I even have the feeling that I can write more than you could possibly read. 🙂 I have no idea if you know it, but I am extremely thankful to every one of you – for reading, sharing, trying, changing and inspiring. There is nothing more valuable for a person who writes, than people who read your words and breath in them life and meaning.
I was thinking about the choices we make – ever minute. How everything that we think, then do is a message to our body and our life. If the body is the main instrument, which creates our world – our life couldn’t be any better than the state of our body. Because, at the end of the day, no material possession and no external success, could change what you carry with yourself – feelings, thoughts, and emotions.
I was thinking, how every one of our choices is just a statement about who we want to become.
No matter what we say, our actions are stronger – they will always scream – without making a sound.
It doesn’t matter if we say that we want to lose weight, to change our lifestyle, to feel more confident about whom we are.
Every time we choose to eat crappy food, we make a statement about the choice to be sick, overweight and with low self esteem.
Every time, when we say that we want to prepare quality food and move more, yet we choose to stay at home, on the couch and order pizza or eat a sandwich, we make a statement about the choice to give a priority to the short term pleasure (illusionary), instead of the long term happiness and self actualization.
Every time, when we postpone working out and eating better for tomorrow or for Monday, we actually make a statement about the choice to postpone our own self and our own potential.
I imagine every choice like the palette of an artist, and every action like his drawing hand. Everything that we choose and everything that we do, at the end of the day, paints the image that reflects in the mirror – every morning.
The body and the life of every one of us is our own mission and masterpiece. The body gives in to change and it doesn’t matter where we are today and what we have done to it – it is like a shadow and it moves in synchrony with the change in our convictions and our self-awareness.
The body is just an external expression of an internal decision – for something better and something more meaningful.
Some of us choose to live life as victims – punished by their own limitations, excuses and lack of vision about life.
Being who you want to become, requires just as much effort, as being somebody you can’t stand – but the first one leads you to places where every step brings you pleasure, satisfaction and a sense of meaning. The other one – it leads you to the baseness of human existence.
And do you know what? Many people think that they lack motivation. In reality, they lack an answer to the question “why”.
If every time we remind ourselves that what we do, makes a statement about who we are, then in every second we will be more conscious and more honest about where and why we are in a particular place and state.
A person can’t change, until he takes full responsibility for his life and actions.
Nothing happens in spite of us – everything happens through us.
What I choose makes a statement about who I am.
