I hope your Optimistic October is going well. Each new month can be a fresh start with renewed motivation and willpower to reach our new goals and follow a healthy lifestyle. However as we all know, the month goes on and the craziness of life begins to set in and we often will struggle to remain as driven and focused as we were at first. Is this natural? Completely! So, today I want to offer you a solution to this problem of falling off track and becoming disappointed and frustrated. One of the keys I have found for many clients in reaching their goals for lasting transformation!
That solution is to find an accountability partner! This could be someone who is seeking to live a healthy lifestyle as well, and someone who can encourage you in all areas of life- body, mind and spirit.
This is your "go-to" person when you are feeling stressed over meal planning, don't think you have time to fit in a workout, have struggled to have a quality quiet time all week or are facing any of life's many obstacles. As we see in Proverbs 27:17, we weren't meant to do this life alone. God has intended for us to live this life together, and by doing so we "sharpen" one another and make each other better. This proves to be true for any area of life! When you work together with a friend, you both will be much more apt to achieve goals and live the lives that you long to live.
Take time today to seek out an accountability partner. Pray over who this person could be in your life and then reach out to them! Have a honest discussion about how you will both be able to walk through life together, growing physically, mentally and spiritually and helping each other every step of the way.
Don't forget to be active in this challenge! If you have something in your life that keeps you optimistic and full of joy, if you are spending time with your accountability partner, if you completed a tough workout- post it on Instagram and tag us @transfitathens! Or comment below and tell us about it.
