I had to think long and hard about this one.
I’d really love to be able to list strengths that are admirable and will help me make a success of this journey, but the one thing I’ve learned while I’m writing this book is that my strengths are also double edged swords.
In very many ways who I am doesn’t really fit with success in weight loss. I can’t say I’m emotionally strong, focused, patient and go after what I want without deviation. Part of me wishes that I was, but then, to be honest, that isn’t me.
Instead of worrying about who I’m not, and wishing I had a little more Earth in my chart for practicality and structure, or Air for logic and rationality, I’m looking to make the best of what I do have. Somehow I have to make this work without losing myself in the process and by turning myself into the best version of me that I can be.
So, here goes:
I’m creative. Really creative. With words, ideas, my camera.
I’m flexible. I bend and stretch to fit whatever needs to be fitted. Astrologically I’m water and water does that- move itself to fit a container, forge a new path, flow a different way.
I’m a dreamer. I’m able to visualise anything and everything in my head the way I want it to be.
I’m a horizon girl. I can’t be faffed with the details, my eye is firmly on the horizon at all times.
I’m a blue sky thinker. How hard can it be? is my mantra. I always look for the bright side in any situation- partly because I simply can’t deal with the possibility that there mightn’t be a bright side. Sure shit happens, but I don’t need to contemplate that. It’s the same with people- I like to think the best of everyone.
