YOUR LIFE A-Z FIT
A GOOD FIT GETS US WHERE WE ARE GOING
Do you FIT? What does it mean to FIT? Are you FIT? Lot’s of questions pop up with this powerful three- letter word. No wonder it follows Diligence and Effort. I am sure each of you readers has at least three-five stories about how you feel when you do not FIT in. In the process of growing up I am sure you found your self in the garden of misFITS more than once. Ah, but the word garden would imply you are not alone. Misfits are often the most colorful, productive, and vibrant part of the garden of life. Just because companies make a size 10, does not mean that everyone FITS into a size 10. Maybe you are a size one or a size triple X, so what? You are you. It takes working with your daily difference in positive kind ways to give yourself permission to FIT in just as you are without having to change one thing. Also, reframe the word FIT in terms of your physical health. Often your body weight or your BMI are the only focus of FIT. But how are your heart, sugar levels, cholesterol, lungs, and muscle groups? Are they FIT? Remember what it feels like when you put on your favorite clothes and they fall perfectly, cozy and comfortable on your body. It feels wonderful. You want your body to feel that wonderful from the inside out. It may take some more Diligence and Effort, but take one thing at a time and bring it into the perfect FIT for you.
