A letter to myself:
You owe it to yourself to never forget your experience at Miraval. You are radiant! Every day should feel like that Tuesday morning after your treadmill and abs, walking by the stream. Shout to the world "It's great to be alive! I'm so happy to be alive!" Always feel like this!
Now get your ass to the gym, eat for your body and not your taste buds and above all else, live in the present. Tomorrow is not here yet. Be "mindful" of this and say it everyday. It's your life and your life only. You deserve the best. Now make it happen!
Love You Beautiful! Your Fabulous Self,
Miraval, in Tucson Arizona is quite a special place. After your time there they encourage you to write a letter to yourself that they mail to you 3 months later. They say it's to remind yourself of, well, exactly what I wrote. That feeling of happiness, a reminder of that stress free environment, your desire to recreate it everyday in your life, and what you truly took away from that experience.
I keep it in my drawer at work as a reminder. But, of course, life happened and a whole bunch of stuff got put on top of it. Talk about a total metaphor! Having forgotten about it, it was a breath of fresh air to re-read it today. I can now say that I've found that happiness again these last 47 days of my new life. (And my drawer is now clutter free!)
Physical fitness & eating right has me zeroed in to me, ME! For once it's about me. Even if it is only a few hours in the morning, it's mine and no one can take it away from me. #grateful
This letter is from July 26, 2015. I was definitely due for a change.
