The journey unfolds. If your just joining me, welcome. I have decided (after a lecture from several people) to do a bit of a life overhaul. Not in the “I hate my life, everything must change”, type of way but more in a I need to be more conscious of the choices I am making for me. So I decided to start with 13 goals of a witch and work thought them while bring my life more in line with what I want it to be. I have started with Know yourself.
I am still working on my lists but here is the progress I have made. I got to thinking about the various ways we can contribute to our health and having watched the movie Chasing Mavericks recently I kept thinking about what Frosty said about the 4 pillars of a person. So this image came to my head. As you know I’m not an artist per say but I don’t mind. After writing the headings I decided to go back and write in some supporting characteristics of the categories.
I tried a few different ways to write down a list of things I wanted to do every day but I don’t feel that either list is really complete and so this one is still a work in progress.
Then there is the long list of everything I have to do. I have actually gone back and added a few more things. I know this picture made some people (poor miss Jennie) freak out because it is too much. Dear Jennie is absolutely right. It is too much, but currently this is everything on my plate. So It is now a question of culling and delegating. I still think without this list I still might feel like I should be able to get it all done and do more.
Having done the work to understand where I stand at this very moment I am choosing to move forward and start with examining and working on my Physical pillar. I am starting there as 1. my health is a little bit of an issue at the moment. 2. I tend to ignore my physical body more than I should. 3 this is the vessel for the other pillars so I want to sure it up. I am starting this again just by observation. I am observing how my body is carrying out its tasks and recording some key information. I am keeping a food diary. I have done this before and it is always interesting. I am writing down amounts of food I eat (roughly) but more I am writing down what did I eat, why did I eat? When did I eat? How did I feel after and what did I think of the food, the flavor? I am also trying to up my water intake as that always helps and I have yet to meet a person who drinks enough water. I will probably start adding in sleep notes too.
I have started a section in my Filofax called “a better me” and that is where I’m writing all this down. Btw if you’re wondering from the picture above with the big list that is a Personal Metropol Filo in Red and it has the Lime Tree Fruits calendar
