Actions Speak Louder Than Words

How often have you said (with good intention) that you would do something good for yourself? What percentage of the time didn't you follow through? What got in the way? And what message are you giving yourself when you don't make good on what you say?

We promise ourselves that we will exercise, stop smoking, eat better, stress less, etc., etc. We know what is good for ourselves yet we talk about making changes more often than we actually do make changes.

Something will always be there to provide a good excuse not to act. Too little time or money. Too many emergencies, laundry, family. Pick any excuse at all. They are only excuses that keep you from acting in your best interest.

If you love yourself and those who depend on you, you must begin to ACT, not only speak. When you nurture yourself, you have so much more to give to others.

So next time you get an urge to take better care of yourself, ACT on it!
