I had a lovely acupuncture appointment today with my ND. We talked alot about the wellness journey. I explained to her that I was beginning to feel better, how it seemed to be a slow and steady journey, and how bit by bit, day by day, I was feeling improvements, more energy, a better outlook.
Knowing how I project manage everything (this didn’t take her long to figure out), she counseled me on the process of wellness and how health is not a project – there is no start, middle or end. It is not “accomplished” once a certain goal is reached. It is a constant and continuous journey.
I have a hard time with this concept I must say. How does one manage something that doesn’t have a start and end? This is definitely homework on my end – maybe I need to ‘project manage’ my inclination to project manage my health. JK.
In the meantime, I read this on The Happiness Project today, so I thought I’d share
- To delay to do something important until you have some “free time,” because you may never have any free time
- To retreat into isolation when you’re unhappy
- To neglect to make a small change because you think a big change is necessary
- To refuse to consider a big change because you assume you can only make a small change
- To “treat” yourself to something you wouldn’t ordinarily permit yourself, because you’re feeling blue
- To postpone something important until you’re feeling healthier, or thinner, or married, or whatever
- To think that you can “make” someone else be happy
- To imagine that what’s true for other people is true for you
- To spend too much time, or not enough time, thinking about the past, present, or future
- To ignore the truth about your own temperament, interests, and aptitudes
Well, in my opinion, there are no mistakes – only learning.
Happy Hump Day everyone, let the sun shine on.
