Take a long, hard look at yourself and ask yourself if you’ve let yourself go. I don’t just mean a few extra pounds. Have you looked back and realised that the last year of your life was spent working and drinking mojitos? Have you stayed in a relationship out of habit or fear of being single? Have you settled?
It may be difficult to admit to yourself that you’ve let yourself go. Your pride will fight you every step of the way. You’ll hear a little voice in your head telling you that you were reasonable, you did the best that you could or even that you weren’t going to get your way if you wanted to. Don’t engage in self-sabotage
Briefly look back on the past year (past years?) and pick out a few moments where you zigged when you should have zagged. Now be aware that these were conscious choices on your part to do the wrong thing. That may seem a bit harsh but the good news is that all of this can change – it’s up to you to do the work.
