Taking the Plunge…sort of.

I’ve taken the plunge, in a sense. Do you know someone who is the “go-to” person in your circle of friends for advice, the shoulder to lean on, or even gives you that slap in the face dose of reality? Well…that’s me in a nutshell. I’m always dishing out stuff to my friends and family, whether they ask or not(sorry!!!). Yet, I hardly ever take my own advice or put my tips into practical use. Now it stops. I’m taking the plunge and will start living what I preach.

Okay…I know, I know. Crap. If I couldn’t do this already, how am I supposed to start now. Well, I’ve thought it out and have a plan. (Come on now, if you know me, you know that I plan out everything just about. I’m a crazy organized freak.) The plan starts with me not making any changes to be honest. I’ve realized that every time I try to change something with my life, it always goes awry. I try to change everything instantly and it never works. So, this time around, I’m not changing. Instead, I’m going to think.

Yup. I said it. No changes but more thinking. Make sense?

By thinking about the changes I want to make, I’m slowly able to change without even realizing it. The entire process of how I do certain things just balances out. It’s weird but it works for me. I’ve thought a lot out recently:

  • losing weight
  • starting up my own business/writing a blog
  • being less of a procrastinator
  • and of course…relationships

As for the results:

  • I’ve lost over 40lbs in the past 9 months
  • started my own business/blog
  • and currently I’ve started to think over the procrastination/relationship aspects in my life.

By thinking over these items, I let myself reevaluate what’s important, make smarter decisions, and have lasting results.  The change happens naturally.  Each of these are areas I’ve always want to change in myself.  I tried every which way to change too.  Ask my mom about my weight, my friends about my business/blog ramblings, coworkers/classmates about my procrastination, and all of my exes about me in a relationship (ouch!).  I’ve said it over and over again…I WILL CHANGE…and I did change, for a bit.  It just never stuck, until now…I hope.

Thinking.  Not changing.  Take the plunge and think more!!!
