Author and recovering alcoholic Sarah Hepola on slow change:
“Change is not a bolt of lightning that arrives with a zap. It is a bridge built brick by brick, every day, with sweat and humility and slips. It is hard work, and slow work, but it can be thrilling to watch it take shape.”

Learning to live in the moment…
My prep to date has been very interesting.
With a change (in diet or exercise), I get a result quickly and then my body adapts.
I’ve seen ab definition I’ve never seen. And I’ve felt flabby just the same.
Enjoying your hard work in the present while also being preoccupied with the future are both exciting and mind f**king just the same!
I’m almost at my 2 year TWW anniversary; but if you asked me when I first started that I needed to be ALL IN for at least a few years, I may have walked away.
Because at that time I was still hyper fixated on a time line.
When I truly embraced the truth of no end date or end number and focused instead on all of the possibilities of my present, the almost 2 years has raced by.
And THAT is what we know to be true. Time passes by. Whether we start or not. Whether we want it or not. Whether we take action or remain the same. Time will always tick on.
Now instead of counting down weeks, I’m celebrating every day.
What can I do today?
What do I need now?
What stress can I release sooner than later?
What relationships do I want to nurture?
What are the things that require my immediate focus?
What events must I plan ahead for, right now?
