The Challenge

When I think of the word challenge I think of something that is hard but still doable. It is a challenge because I have to really look at myself and find a way to make it happen. The challenge I am about to embark on is loving myself.

When I was in yoga this morning(aka the best thing about my days and I really wish I could afford to be a yoga instructor) at the end of class the instructor told us to work on the ultimate challenge; to love yourself right now while still moving forward. This is something that resonates with me so well right now. I am currently looking for another job but also trying to find what I really want to do. I struggle with feeling like there are not a lot of options out there for me, and with a tough economy to boot, it just feels slightly hopeless. At least that is what I have been saying and feeling in the past.

Today is a new day, the sun is shining and I am going to really work on loving myself as I am right now. Focus on what you are doing right at this moment, and if you are doing it to the best of your ability you are already a great accomplishment. It is too easy to focus on the future or the past. But that is just it, it is not what is happening right now. Right now is what you can actually change and what you can actually work on.

As my Yogi said this morning, loving yourself right now but still setting goals and looking ahead. This will be what I am going to work on and this will be what the new focus of this blog is. Of course there is always going to be fitness, fashion and food because these are all the things in my life I have grown to love. But the focus will always be on love and truly loving the moment right now.

What are you going to do to love yourself today?

Yoga was a great love and an amazing journey which it always is so I am happy I did that for myself. I am also going to dedicate some time to work on my Personal Training degree and do a little reading. Job hunting will be there tomorrow today is for love.
