Article previously posted on my blog "A WOMAN'S VOICE"

Many of you have already read my book I’m Not Perfect And It’s Okay, so I am not going to go into too much detail about what’s in it.  I just want to share with you the first small step of many more steps to come that helped turn my life around. It is very hard to motivate yourself when you have little desire and even less energy to do so.

 

Many of us have been there.  There is something inside us that tells us things just aren’t quite right.  We want to be right with ourselves and right with the world.  There is an inner discontentment that sits in the pit of our stomach which affects our zest for life. What can we do about it because we hate the way we feel about ourselves, our jobs and many other aspects of our lives? In the end, we can actually hate ourselves because we can’t understand what is wrong with us.

 

I recommend this suggestion based on my own experiences. Start by one small step at a time…one small accomplishable step in the right direction.  I started by actually taking physical steps by beginning a daily walking regime, one block of walking, day after day until I built myself up to three miles a day.  That was over twenty-five years ago.  That was the best decision I ever made in helping myself get out of the pit I found myself in.  I got off the bench in life and became a player.  I took charge of my own life and decided to make a difference.  It worked.  I sang this song as I walked, “these boots are made for walking and”…..that’s just what I did!  I had to help myself. There was no other way!  My dad often used this expression, “The Good Lord helps those who help themselves!”  It’s very true .  Just try it and you’ll find out for yourself
