Is change really possible?
by Harriet Frew on April 21st, 2014

This is a blog for anyone who is feeling stuck and disillusioned about making changes.
 
Consider this.....

Change takes time; it is a process.
 
Becoming more self-aware is a crucial step in setting you on the path for change. You then start to have a choice about how you do things.
 
It is normal to relapse and repeat unhelpful patterns when you are in the process of change.
 
There is no failure, only a learning experience. When you learned to ride a bike, you fell off lots of times before you mastered it. But I am sure you persisted and carried on.
 
When you look back in time, you will actually see how far you have come.
 
 
Here is a lovely poem about change..... by Portia Nelson
 
 
ONE
 
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in
I am lost………I am helpless
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
 
 
TWO
 
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it
I fall in again
I can’t believe I’m in the same place.
But is isn’t my fault
It still takes a very long time to get out.
 
THREE
 
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there
I still fall in…….it’s a habit
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.
 
FOUR
 
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
 
FIVE
 
I walk down another street.
 
 ​What do you relate to? Be brave and post below.
 
If you would like to get in touch about working with me to explore some of these issues further, I would love to hear from you. I am passionate about helping you to eat all the foods you love; and feel great about your body without disordered eating or dieting.
