MANIFESTO

 
 

I am promising myself that change starts now.  That in this moment there is something I can do to make progress.  And once that thing is accomplished there will be something else I can do to take the next step forward to progress in this journey.

I am promising myself that when I fall, I will get back up.  Because #life.  I am not perfect, but I am flexible, adaptable and teachable.  I choose not to beat myself over decisions that weren’t the wisest.  I choose to figure out what triggered that decision, learn from it and change.

I am promising myself to live a healthy, balanced life.  There is a time and a place to let loose.  There is a time and a place to enjoy fun foods.  There will be unplanned events that will take priority over this journey.  I choose to be in those moments whole heartedly.  I also choose to not change lanes from the path that I am on, but consider these events as bumps or hills on the straight and narrow road I’m traveling on.

I am promising myself to love myself, right now.  To love the skin I am in.  To appreciate where I am right now and everything that has contributed to it.  To love the successes and gains that I’ve worked hard for.  To love the fails and losses as they have built character and taught me lessons along the way.

Last, but not least, I know that I will never arrive, because having arrived is claiming perfection and no human can ever be without fault or flaw.  Therefore, I will always strive for progress and improvement.  To continuously progress and improve, I must always be open to new ideas and outcomes, for change is constant.

Now go!
