It has been a while since my last blog, the holidays and my partner being home all the time kind of threw me off a bit. It is always nice to have everyone around and home but it does mess up the schedule and sometimes that is so difficult for me. Also, my schedule at the gym changed and trying to acclimate to that has been a little trying too. It will alllll work out though! I have pondered what to write about for the last few days and haven't really come to anything specific, except this. CHANGE. Ugh, it is a scary word for most people, but it can also be a word of adventure and a catalyst for new things to come. Negative Nancy would dig in her heals and be incredibly bitchy (yes, that's right, I used the b word) with change. However, as I contiually make a conscious daily effort to embrace the life of Positive Patty, I look at change with excitement or another way to enjoy the benefits of the chemicals your brain releases in scary unknown situations...you know, flight or fight!! .but my challenge to you is this: try something new that has scared you in the past..step out and let the fear fuel you instead of freezing you or pushing you backwards. YOU are WORTH the steps forward that it takes to get where you want to be, even if it is scary. There will be failures and I guarantee Negative Nancy will stick her head up, but challenge yourself with Postive Patty's attitude when NN comes around. Don't let that negative rule you, because if you let it, it surely will!!
