Life Changes

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I have recently come to realized that I need to make some changes in my life. I’m not just talking about health changes (eating right, exercising etc, which I am making part of my daily routine, little by little. ) I’m talking about changes to my personal life as well.
I have noticed that my circle of friends is full of people who really don’t want me to make these changes. I’m sure they don’t mean it literally, it’s just that they are so far on the other side of the spectrum of where I want to be.
These are the friends who want to get together and go out to eat, bake cookies, make candies, and sit around and watch movies. They have no interest in healthy eating let alone exercise as a part of a daily routine.
I am too vulnerable in my new journey and willpower is not my friend at this point. I have noticed that I have been subconsciously avoiding these people so the temptation will not arise.
I don’t plan on writing these people off, I just need to get a little more confident in myself and my ability to stick to this new path that I have chosen.
That being said, I have decided that I need to find a few new people to include in my “circle.” I need to look for people who inspire and motivate me.
Life is too short. When you meet someone who you see something special in, you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to include them in your “circle” It could be just about anyone, as I am learning. I just need to step up and say "Hey! you are awesome...wanna be my friend?"

    I am in a very similar situation and making the same commitment. Opening yourself up to new friendships is both scary and at the same time exciting. I am at a point where I am finally ready to reach out to others, and proud of myself for doing so. Congratulations on learning more about yourself on your journey! I too would love to get together!
