Magic Doesn’t Happen for Lazy People

January 13, 2015

I’ve been busy away from the blog. I have been making magic.

Last week, The Ginger Hunk and I attended a new year meditation session together at our local studio. (Finally we have accepted that I will never paraglide and he will never do yoga, so meditation is something we can do together – it’s awesome.)

There I am lying on the floor, channeling all my negative vibes, thoughts and happenings from 2014 (there were A LOT) into this rock that is tiny (how can it hold all the shit that went down last year I do not know, but Kerrie tells that me it can) and she says something out loud as we are thinking about what we want for us the year 2015 that hits me like a freight train.

“MAGIC DOES NOT HAPPEN FOR LAZY PEOPLE”

Bing. Light bulb. Indeed it does not. 

My book will not write itself.

My blog will not grow unless I give it love.

I won’t become fit again unless I stick to my plan.

I won’t get more articles published unless I put myself out there.

I won’t have the time to do it unless I MAKE the time, by making a choice.

THE MAGIC STARTS TO HAPPEN WHEN WE TAKE A STEP TOWARDS OUR GOAL.

EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

This is true to anything we want to happen in our lives. 

You don’t wake up one day and become an ironman. You do the time, and the training. You make a step every day. 

You don’t lose weight by thinking about it. You eat green food and go to the gym every day, even though you don’t want to.

(You really want to eat pies and watch netflix.)

You don’t wait for someone to give you permission, or tell you you’re good enough to do something, before you do it.

Do it anyway. 

So here is my promise to make a little bit of magic every day towards my goals in 2015. 

Come with me!

    Love this so much. I am feeling SO lazy at the moment. I need to kick my own ass. Thanks for inspiring me to kick my own ass.
