The Mind Slip that Blew My Mind

The strangest things have been happening this week. Strange, wonderful, destiny-type things that have really thrown me for a loop and made me take stock of what this year really has in store for my wellness, inside and out.  And just so you know, it's a whole bunch of fantastic.

And the strangest just happened - for the third time this week, I accidentally typed the word, "love" instead of what I meant to type.  And as someone who thinks everything is a sign of wonderful things to come, this has even me a little freaked out.

Although, it shouldn't be that unexpected. I've been putting my consistency, data, accountability, and intention into hyper mode lately to bring some revolutionary changes in not only my fitness but my life in general. So why am I surprised when it works? 

I've been exercising and eating well consistently.
I've been recording my wellness data.
I've been implementing challenging, new forms of accountability.
And I've been very intentionally looking for, creating, and sending positive energy.

It's been landing on my doorstep in droves, and apparently all of his happy mumbo-jumbo is even working its way into my subconscience. Love is finally pouring from my fingertips.

Here's the lesson in all of this: create an environment where wellness success can grow, and it will. Are you creating an environment for success?  Here are a few ways to tell:

1. Do you surround yourself with positive people who encourage you to achieve your wellness goals?
2. Do you practice positive self-talk to yourself? Your brain and your body listen and learn quickly, so be nice!
3. Do you make the choices necessary to yeild positive outcomes? Health is a choice.
4. Do you work consistently, with intention, use accountability, and respond to data relative to your goals?

If your answers are yes, buckle your seatbelt. Congratulations! You're about to have an awesome weekend.

And if they are no...what's the hold up?
