One year of mindfulness – my steps #2

After my insights, what Alex tried to make me realize and do is that I needed to start to act accordingly. I wrote about this before, and it sounds so simple. One action a day that is in sync with my wishes, so that my outer world matches my inner one.

It has not been an easy road to work on this. Sometimes I wished for a miracle to happen and SWISH new me, new life, all good. Nonsense, of course. So I worked on making the change I desired feasible in my everyday life. More than once I fell into what I’d like to call “old“ habits and ways of thinking, and more than once I cursed myself that I had even set one daring toe on this exhausting yet for me right path.

Luckily, my life coach (believe me, the term still makes me roll my eyes, every time 😉 ) knows what she is doing, so I began to see and feel progress, or change, and that has motivated me a lot. 🙂 As did comments by friends and family who were observant and noted something was different, too. It encouraged me, so thanks, sincerely. 💞

Beliefs of my coach – and she was right:
1. Trying out new activities will help me find those that bring me joy and I can identify with (i.e. writing this blog, dancing, travelling, summer university or other further edication). And give me new input.
2. Through opening my life/broadening my horizon and finding new joyful activities and living a more mindful life, more people that share my interest and mindset will enter my circle of friends.
3. Visualizing the kind of relationship I would like to lead will make me see different men and change my dating life.

I do not know if it was her belief in me or my belief that she was right that mattered more in crucial moments…however, I have taken stock and must say I like where I am today. 🙂 🙂 🙂
