Baby Steps

Good things come to those who wait.... There is a big difference between just waiting for things to happen to you and making small direct moves to reach a goal. I have several friends doing Weight Watchers right now. The idea behind WW is to change your eating habits for good - this just takes time. The weight does not just fall off but it does come off.... slowly. A pound a week doesn't sound like much when you are reading the headlines at the supermarket ("I lost 122 lbs!") but in one year that is over 50 pounds. Overnight success stories are so rare and usually short lived. I think if we have small, medium, and large goals in our lives and we can make daily small strides to reach them we eventually will. Even if it is only 5 minutes a day. What big dreams do you have that you are waiting around for? How can you break that down into smaller goals to reach that dream? What can you do today to start getting there?
