Damn it! I’m out of chocolate…

By May 7, 2014 December 3rd, 2018 No Comments

“Damn it! I’m out of chocolate – ok what can I have instead?”  As I stand outside my pantry searching for “it” – for the “it” to hit the spot – what is it that I’m really doing?

I’m really being good to myself. I’m really trying (if my God damn pantry will let me) feel:

  • Energised
  • Happy
  • Relaxed
  • Inspired
  • Fulfilled
Hmm…I think…will the activated blueberry chocolate that I just found do the trick?  I mean almost…right? It is chocolate, with all the fandangaly bits attached and it will get me there, but for how long? (Nope don’t want to think about that).
So let me tell you – you’re great Goddess!!  You’re great at listening to yourself.  You know when you need something to take you out of exhaustion, lacklustedness (is that a word?) and whatever else.  Yes you’re really great! (We both know that)
But how wonderful are you at doing what you know is good for you when you:

Don’t feel like it?

Are not in the mood?

Can’t be arsed?

What did you get? 4/10? 10/10?  If you got a number that’s not too hot, don’t beat yourself up – this is just your starting point. From here the only way is up.  I mean wouldn’t it be great if you could trust yourself totally to always do the right thing by you?  To not fall by the wayside desperate like Marlon Brando:

“I coulda been a contender…I coulda been somebody”…

So no matter how you feel…especially when you don’t feel like it, can’t be arsed – you do it.

Yes you do your yoga no matter what

You meditate – especially if you’re not in the mood

and you..

(this is your bit, what do you want to say here?)

Because afterall the real reason you’re going after all these things is for the end result.

To feel a certain way.

So what if you were disciplined enough to create this feeling within – in the good girl way for you, like yoga, like meditation – especially when you don’t feel like it?  How would that feel?

Like the cat who got the cream?

And you know what it takes?

A rebellion in you to:

Do it especially when you don’t feel like it.

And that takes guts.

Create mayhem inside of you by making a decision:

I decide to rebel against my can’t be arsed self and will (say in your own words) E.g.

Start 4 mornings out of 7 with a green juice

Because I deserve to feel

  • Energised
  • Happy
  • Relaxed
  • Inspired
  • Fulfilled

Any time I wish and I deserve to get there in a way that is kind to me and especially if I don’t feel like it today!

I almost never feel like meditating but feel so incredible afterwards that I often ask myself what was that all about?  So I let my rebel out most mornings because I’m worth rebelling for!

Leave a comment below and tell me – what are you going to do to rebel against your can’t be arsed self this week? Make yourself a green juice 4 mornings this week?  Go for a run?
