And so I must begin my journey. The whole idea behind creating this blog was to make it easier (somehow) for me to embark on my own personal journey of transformation and return to me. Although I have posted quotes, pictures, and writing of various forms, I have not however grasped what this blog is really meant to be about. And you may ask yourself the same question that I have asked myself: WHY? well the answer is simple, yet profound. Because it is difficult to face your demons, to heal old scars and to expose yourself to the world. But this is what I have decided to do nonetheless.
I am tired of hiding my pain and my past. I want to find myself and the real reason why I’m sharing my life with you, dear reader, is because I feel perfectly alone, alone like I have always been since I was a child. I don’t feel sorry for myself on the contrary, I want to expose my scars to the whole world so that from my pain and experience I may be of help to others. Like I said at the beginning of this blog “One must rise to the challenge of change in order to embrace was best about us, to understand and connect to our inner world.” This blog has been divided into categories not just because they are of interest to me but also because these are the areas in which I wish to change.
BODY: All my life I have weighed 48 kilos but since that terrible illness I went up to 74 kilos! I am now at 67 kilos soooo the challenge and transformation for me is to go down to 48 kilos by the 1st March. I’m planning to exercise one hour at day, to walk to the park which I absolutely love, and to practice yoga daily. I simply cannot follow a diet, so what I’m planning to do is to eat healthy meals and include organic coconut virgin oil which is amazing to aid weight loss.
SPIRIT: I am going to get up at 5:00am everyday to pray and get closer to the source of life and energy, to God.
EMOTION/MIND: I am a fervent reader and I particularly love reading self-development books. At the moment I am reading a few books at the same time whiles listening to audiotapes as well. I am going to recommend to you my dear reader some of the books I am reading, that I have found incredibly helpful, those are the following:
- Anthony Robbins “Awaken the Giant Within.”
- Stephen R. Covey “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”
- Penney Peirce “The Intuitive Way.”
- Dale Carnegie “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”
There are also very good channels on you tube I can suggest. One in particular which is a series of talks on success and positive mental attitude by Napoleon Hill I highly recommend it . Do not be put off by the vintage look, just look for the treasure in the message. Well! from now on I will be posting my advancement and steps in this journey under the different categories. I am not even sure if this post will be read by anyone or if it will be of interest at all but I have committed myself to this challenge and therefore I will see it through until the end. I sincerely hope you can accompanied me in this journey of recovery and transformation. I can assure you that your company, comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! ever so much for taking the time to read my post and be part of my magical world.
