I want to share some gratitude and a subtle lesson I learned.
My son received some candy from his school Halloween party at the time I am writing this. I suggested to him that he could go through his bag of goodies over the weekend. I was kind of pleased that he forgot about the candy bag for a few days all together…! We decided together on the idea that he would make three piles of his treats: (YES, NO, MAYBE).
I also wanted to empower him to make his own choices about his treats without me around.
In other words, sometimes saying NO gives us tremendous freedom and joy to enjoy what is right in front of us fully and completely.
THE ACTION TAKING COMES BEFORE THE WILLPOWER DOES.
“Action precedes motivation”
First we take action, then we feel confidence and proud of ourself, therefore increasing willpower and motivation.
If you wait around for Willpower to come first (before action taking), you’ll be waiting a long time.
By the way, the 18 Day Love Yourself Naked Cleanse Challenge could be perfectly timed to break your tastebuds of those sweet sensations – and they will need it desperately after holidays.
