If you are happy, journey on. And if you are not, make a change.

I am sharing a page from my journal today for Sparkers who are not living the perfectly healthy life they want to live right now.
This is posted on my Spark page. When I saw it this morning, it gave me pause and made me reflect on how this month's journey is unfolding.
Does my journey make me happy? When I follow my plan I am strong. When I am strong, I am happy.
When I embrace off-plan behavior day after day, I leave my strong place. That makes me unhappy.
We all need to be a little flexible and kind to ourselves. Lately stinking thinking is creeping in here. I need to be on guard about thinking "this little bit of off-plan behavior doesn't matter" because it can open the door to more off-plan behavior. My mind says giving in to the moment is no big deal because I can always get right back on track. It's not an all-or-nothing journey. Soon the off-plan behavior has become the norm. Still no big deal because I can get back on track anytime...so my brain says.
Well, here is a message to Brain:
Right now is that back-on-track moment. I am worth more than this. I can't control the ugliness in the world right now, but I can control my reaction. Going off-plan does not make the world a better place, especially MY world.
I am stronger than this. I deserve better than this.
It only takes a couple of days on-plan to move back into that strong place.
