I wrote a thread that probably belongs under the heading of "Personal Wellbeing" but I could not find a CLM thread heading that was similar. I chose "Long Distance Relationships" as the best available because if two people do not have their personal wellbeing in a healthy place their chances of establishing a healthy long distance relationship are close to zero. My personal wellbeing was in a good place before I started my relationship with my Chinese partner 5 years ago, but a recent event has inspired me to push my wellbeing to an even higher level.
I will now start my thread ---Are you living your “best” life? ---
Are there "problems" in your life that have been there for many, many years?
Recently the death of someone I respected greatly and who was a high achiever had a strong impact on me. This man worked strongly at being the best he could be. He also encouraged everyone around him to work at being the best that they could be.
While I reflected on the loss of his life, I looked at my life and while my life has some noteworthy achievements and I live a happy life, I still asked myself the question......... Am I living my “best” life?
I have been overweight for more than 25 years
I have lived a cluttered life for more than 40 years.
On these two aspects alone it was clear to me that I was not living my “best” life.
On the day of this person's death I decided to honor him by committing to get my weight back to the healthy weight range and stay there for the rest of my life. I also committed to remove clutter from my life and live clutter free for the rest of my life.
My partner is very happy with both of these vows.
So far I have lost 5 kg in seven weeks by cutting out sugar and alcohol from my diet and I have also started using the KonMari Method to declutter my house. My target date to achieve these to goals is the end of October this year. I need to lose at least another 5 kg. The weight my cluttered house is currently losing is much, much larger.
I now have a question for you.
Are you living your “best” life?
