My Life in Rehab... My Life Reinvented...

Every moment provides an opportunity to take steps toward changing and improving your life…

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
 – Maria Robinson

Every day I seek growth; I seek better for myself and my family. Every day, before I sleep, I choose to learn by analysing what the day has either brought, taught, surprised me with, or has made me curious of. I analyse what was placed in the path I chose to pursue. Every day I have the opportunity to wake up anew. I’m not forgetting yesterday, but my mind and body are ready for the ever changing novelty that is life.

I’m choosing to expand from the old and give in to new desires by transitioning into and through new experiences. My confidence level has reached an all new height, so although I do care about my surroundings (people) and their opinions of the evolving me, my focus is letting myself and my happiness come first.

I have entered a self-governed rehabilitation program for my life; I have decided and need to reinvent parts of myself....

My 10 step process to rehabilitating one’s life:

1.      Identify what’s missing. Recognize your mistakes. Detect the “things” you are unhappy with (within yourself), that are prompting you to seek change; to want to renew part of yourself.
2.      Set goals of betterment and craft a plan to achieve them: your new goals and endeavours have to be enjoyable and the journey has to be one of purpose. Turning your life upside down to achieve someone else’s expectations will inevitably end your adventure in failure.
3.      Take time to think things through, and then take action. Impulsive behaviour is always risky and generally marred with an unpredictable outcome. You want to start renewing yourself with a vision in mind. Define what your motivation is and write down your short term and long term process.
4.      Let go of the negative experiences of the past and grow from the positives. Take notice of what you’ve already achieved (that is, of success), and review the negative, as those are not pointless experiences either.
5.      Challenge all that is ingrained in you, all your emotional habits and impulse behaviours. Focus and believe in your dream and see the changes in your belief.
6.      Believe in yourself and your capabilities; believe that what you set forth in the atmosphere will manifest (another blog post subject all togetherJ). Your thoughts are powerful. Be challenged by doubts but ultimately leave them behind.
7.      Be grateful! Show gratitude (every day) for the support you receive on a daily basis and also for the challenges you get which fuel your competitive side.
8.      Review your accomplishments on a daily basis; small steps forward, huge leaps forward or even setbacks and stagnant results, to make sure you are not forgetting what it is you are trying to achieve. You can easily get caught up, so give yourself a daily reminder. While you strive for improvement, please remind yourself that the new you won’t manifest overnight; it takes time and energy to master a new set of values and attitude.
9.      Surround yourself with positivity… You don’t need to only have people around you that agree with you but you also need people that respect your decisions regardless if they agree or not. Your path is yours to take. Guidance should always be welcome, however, don’t let others’ opinion deter you from your bottom line if the advice is not sound and genuine.
10.  Enjoy the journey and have fun through the process… At the end of the day your life will be what you make of it. Your vision might not come to fruition the exact way you planned but giving it your best will get you as close as possible to achieving it.

 Your life is in a constant state of change. From the time you wake up in the morning, until the time you rest your head at night, there are some big and some small changes. What you sought out in the morning might change by the time you process your day’s event. Be ready, be prepared to readjust and rehabilitate yourself to pursue growth while already in the process. The little details are the ones that take more effort to adapt to and implement.
Live to the fullest, focus on today but with vision of your future. Mind your actions, as personal betterment doesn’t mean disregard of others’ feelings or opinions…

Have you ever find yourself face with need of self improvement? Need for rehabilitation so you can better yourself? What is/are your process? 

To a better Love... always,
