There is one thing that I’ve noticed particularly in 2022 that is having a BIG impact on people’s weight, wealth and everything in between.
It’s small but it’s impact is nothing short of HUGE!
I didn’t want to write about el camino or finding your way because it’s some great sporting feat. It isn’t and I have friends who’ve cycled it in just one day! (Now that’s a sporting feat!).
No, I wanted to write about it because of the feeling the experience left me with and because of the undeniable metaphor between the road and life.
Something that has hit home more and more for me and in working with others is that we don’t have depression, weight, failure, financial or even end of the world problems. True story.
More than likely we’re simply stuck in a habit of thinking we’re fat, or depressed, broke, or that we can’t, etc and then using the ‘evidence’ we see in the world to back it up and reinforce the story we tell about how we are and how the world is…
I’d been learning all about what it means to have a “Growth Mindset” thanks to a small obsession I had with a company called Growth Tribe in Amsterdam long before anyone had ever dreamt of getting rich selling designer Facemasks. (No jokes, check out this mask design from Dolce&Gabbana although I’m more of a Ferrari and McLaren gal myself.)
This whole Coronavirus whilst making me some things in a new perspective has also brought home some truths I’ve long since known but never articulated in one place. Let me say this is by no means any answer to life however remembering these truths and even more importantly embodying some of them have helped me recently more than ever.
I do realise that what I’m about to say is contrary to much of the current #LiveYourBestLife social narrative. I also realise that each of us have to follow our own path so listen, or read, to what resonates with you and ditch the rest…
