Several years ago I went to a craft fair. There I saw people weaving beautiful threads.. I wondered what it would look like when the piece was completed.
It made me think of myself on this healthy lifestyle journey.. SO many times I am so focused on what it will look like when I get to the end, that I have no patience for the weaving it together from the threads.
I forget about the thread of exercise that I have to be diligent about, weaving it into my life.
I forget about the thread of healthy foods I have to weave into my eating habits.
I forget about the thread o positive thoughts I have to weave into my mind.
I forget about the thread of SP community from which to gain encouragement and knowledge.
I forget about the thread of friends and family who bring me motivation and inspiration.
But as the threads weave together they form a beautiful whole, bringing me day by day closer to the finished piece.
Just like with weaving, if I try to rush past, it gets all tangled up and I have to unravel it and restart. Instead I need to take my time and let it all work together the way it needs to become a beautiful piece of art.
Have a happy, healthy day, friends.
