To Live a Life of Change (reflection 4)

I just got back from a conference to renew my credentials. One of the messages I got from it was our mentor's vision to change lives.

It is awesome to find a mentor whom you can align yourself and share a common vision - bigger than yourself.

I know that I am going to be useful and helpful in this journey for a long time but it will require me also to shape up in order to give my best years to serve others.

This includes improving myself physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. These are all work in progress areas.

Physically as I need all the energy to get to the action necessary. Eating right. Exercise. Rest.

Emotionally as I need to always remind myself not to get carried away with my downhill habits.

Intellectually as I can't teach what I don't have knowledge and experience in.

Spiritually as I know that each one of us has a reason to be in this world - to serve others.

Detangle Mind, Body, Spirit connection with Food (reflection 3)

IN the past, I got fit because I worked hard (exercise, run, swim, dragonboat). My eating habits hardly change much.

But now, I have to remove my notion of food as:

  • Reward - don't splurge on food as a means to reward myself.
  • Consolation - don't use food as a perk me up.
  • Love - don't use food as a means to express or demonstrate love.
  • Comfort - don't use food to cope with stress or heavy emotion.
  • Celebration - don't use food as a default means to celebrate special events.
  • Loneliness - don't use food as a companion when I am lonely.
  • Laziness - don't use food eating as an activity when I don't want to do anything else.

I partnered with a fitness coach to support what they want to accomplish with their programs. A long time connection / client, this opportunity kept showing up whenever I contemplate on my health. Becoming active in this field will be of great help to the personal transformation I am aiming for.

Fitness & Private Discipline (reflection 2)

Those closest to us would always be the first to express their concern about our health. Although when I focus on something, my discipline - most of the time - goes along with it.

In the past, i have also blogged about my fitness and sports journey but realized that they were tied to a fitness or sports related advocacy or campaign I was promoting then. But once I accomplished my goal, I move forward to the next one.

Hence is the reason why I am also doing this blog series to constantly remind me of this commitment I am making. That this time - this is not for a client campaign or sports advocacy of a friend I supported - this is for myself, the people I care for, and the vision I want to achieve.
