“Listen to your soul. It speaks quietly, yet clearly, about what it wants, what it needs, what it’s learning, what it yearns for. It speaks of its fears and dreams, its hopes and needs. Learn to listen to the souls of others, too. Listen not only to the way people chatter and exchange ideas. Learn to listen to what they’re really saying.”
As I have been on my fitness and weight loss journey, I have struggled with the ups and downs. There is a ton of information out there about what to do and what not to do. But as I was telling a friend of mine the other day also in her fitness journey, the best step I could have taken was to stop “stressing” over what to do and what not to do, and especially not comparing myself to other people. Once I made that commitment, a shift happened; I actually started loosing weight.
I choose this quote to intro to because not only I think it’s relevant to anyone on any journey, but key to listening to yourself and your own body, what it really needs. It can be overwhelming at times to listen to other people’s advice. While they may be well-intended, their content may not be appropriate.
“Right now, this moment, things are working out. We try to control, try to figure things out. We back off, then come closer. We worry and wonder – but things are working out.”
For now love and peace,
