I’ve finally realized what has been missing this year, apart from a clean bill of health – I need a mantra – a string of words that I can repeat to myself to keep motivated while passing through this adventure called life. It’s interesting to take some time to think of what would be appropriate – what is going to inspire me on a daily basis.
After thinking about what could be my own personal mantra I finally settled on something that resonated with me: “Feed your mind, nourish your body”.
After all of the changes I’ve made in my life over the last two years this one really strikes a chord with me. From losing weight and learning how to properly feed my body, ending relationships that were toxic to me to starting this blog, it all seemed to fall into place. My body was craving the proper nourishment I was depriving it of and my mind was craving the attention of a myriad of words and ideas. Solved – feed your mind, nourish your body.
It’s such a simple run of words but something I can repeat to myself that will keep me focused on what has become most important to me as an individual. I now have it written on my fridge so if I feel I’m getting off my course it is there to remind me of where I was 24 months ago and where I am now.
Maybe you’ve always had your own mantra or maybe you’ve never even thought of the idea but it’s a simple thing to do, it costs no money and could potentially drive you to accomplish more that you thought possible.
If you already have one, I’d love to know what it is – and if you’ve never thought about it, give it a try. It may make a big difference in your daily life.
I’m glad I participated in trifecta 3 word resolution, I’ve been following my – word harder, smarter – pretty well, so far….for a week.
I like that one…but you work smart all the time. 🙂
Mine is, no joke, “Stop being so damn lazy!”
I’ve been feeling that way for two weeks!! And I can’t imagine you being lazy with all you have going on!
Lately I have been finding me apalling. But I WILL turn it around.
I could always email you every now and then and tell you to get off you ass!! 😛
I would appreciate that, Susan. I would indeed.
I kind of feel like I need a mantra as well, but the best I’ve come up with so far is: “Try not to suck.”
You could never suck!!
I get through my day by repeating “I love my life. I love my job” under my breath.
The heavier the sarcasm, the better.
You? Sarcasm? Nooooooo
It’s all good. That is what I constantly tell myself when the shit has hit the fan. I don’t know if I believe that or not, but I suppose it helps calm me down when things are hectic.
I like that….it’s all good!
