OUCH When I must pause and point it directly at myself. ACCOUNTABILITY....sometimes we must be vulnerable and willing to put ourselves out there in the name of accountability. Remove the "hiding places" and step out into what is our reality. It isn't easy.
I have been trying very hard to be my best me. I'm doing it for ME, not for anyone else however I feel a desire to share to hold myself accountable and to encourage others who think they are in whatever their challenge alone - they aren't alone.
I think about the quote "What you eat in private you wear in public" and I think about this too... No one will know if I run or not. Ummm hold up I WILL KNOW!
And me knowing is more than enough.
I've been posting my efforts on my Facebook page. I'm sure there are those who want to throw their arms up and yell WHO CARES. I don't think about those people, I think about the people who say "I see you running and I think I should do that" Or the "I see you eating better and think I should do that". If one persons takes a step in a positive direction YAY! If I move one person toward a healthier life, a bigger goal or a positive change, I own my accountability and inspire someone else. Win Win
On my journey to being the best me, I'm being intentional in my actions, my words, my thoughts, my reactions. How I compose myself, how I present myself. I think about how I inspire others and how I encourage others. I think about my impact on those who know me and those who do not. I hold myself to a standard which is greater than ordinary, I want to be extraordinary! I want to be the best me and in doing so, inspire and encourage the best in others. So, when I say I'm doing this for me, mostly yes. Me with a heart for others and a desire to see the best in those around me.
