Don’t Just Change, Transform
The athletes who competed in the London Olympics are models of persistence and what it takes to maintain change.
What does all of this have to do with our health?
Wellness is the experience of that balance we call health. In order to create a sustainable wellness, we must know where we are right here and right now. Once we know where we are, we can choose to explore who we are – the good, bad, and the ugly. If we are able to look at our individual self with the merciful eyes of a grandparent, we can more fully understand why we are who we are. We can then begin to explore where we want to go in the future. When our being informs our actions it creates a constantly renewing system in which we can catch small imbalances before they become large obstacles. Whether we finish first, second or last, our highest and best effort is always enough. Seeing our self and the world with a new set of eyes provides the renewable fuel of transformation that powers the vehicle of change.
