My Day 1 in my Happy Life Project

One of my guiltiest habits is procrastination. It is the habit of telling yourself “Mamya nalang” or “5 more minutes”. This habit happens to me everyday:

When I wake up – I set the alarm at 5am and I end up getting out of bed at 6:30 am.

Making that business call – (While ringing) “Not my fault kung hindi sagutin”.

Eating at the right time – “I’m still full” or “I’m tamad to open the stove”.

Engaging with friends over dinner – Casually flips through FB.

Why do I do this? I really don’t know. It’s making a story in your mind about giving yourself a break. This blog, is two days off my scheduled post and yes, I have to admit it to make myself realise that its that bad (full transparency folks!)

For the past couple of months I have been exposed to self help books. Before you will never get me to visit the self-help section of a bookstore. Good friends advised my husband and I to re-evaluate our lives. Check if we have the right mindset to be where we want to be.  One of the books I read answered this plainly:

“The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want.”

– T Harver Eker (The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind)

It was a EUREKA moment! It wasn’t clear! Yes I I do have hopes and dreams but is it enough to drive me crazy to work on what I know will make my quality of life better?

Do I want to change? DEFINITELY! The challenge is the big HOW?

My solution… consciously choose your Day 1.

Starting today, I choose not to short change myself:

I choose to wake up everyday at 5:30 and run for 5 km,

I choose to eat properly,

I choose to keep to my appointments,

I choose to be a better mother and wife and most specially,

I choose to be the best version of myself so I may help not only the ones near me but also to those who needs that extra support. A better person that I will like if I was not me. I want a likeable me!

Surviving cancer is an ongoing battle. It makes life worth living as everyday. I only have one life and so do you. Let’s make it a happy one!

Let’s make a deal! Today is your Day 1! I challenge you to break from your habits and join me to be a better You!

Comment if you want to participate in this project! Tell me, what is the one thing or things you will change starting today.

Cheers! Peach Tutu Believes!
