beautiful-16736_640When you become aware quite suddenly of a change in your life, do you not stop and say, “How did that happen?” Because it appears sudden, you are shocked, but we ask you to look at patterns. In many cases, such as what appears to be a sudden change in your body or lifestyle, you will see that the change began quite a bit before you finally acknowledged it. If you are honest with yourself, you will notice subtle nudges leading up to this realization … nudges telling you that your patterns of behavior had changed. Patterns became ruts, and now that you have had a shock, you must dig yourself out. It is never too late to change a pattern. Each moment is a blank slate. Add up those blank slate moments with new behaviors and you have new and perhaps healthier patterns. Be aware and love yourself every moment for finally loving yourself.
