The power of one. This is something that changed my life, genuinely. If you’re just getting to know me, you’ll hear me talk of my massive weight loss (over 345 pounds after a debilitating car accident just out of high school). And if you already know me, you’ll hear me talk of it as well lol. I can’t shut my big mouth! 😉 But it’s because I’m so excited about this concept.
Besides weight loss, you may also hear me speak about the number “one” over and over: one step, one choice, one moment, etc. Why, Kitty? I can hear you asking. Why are you so freaking obsessed with the number “one.”
When I was sitting in my bed all those years ago, and couldn’t move – unsure of whether I’d walk again, unsure of my ability to hold a job again, to drive a car again, and I thought my career as a musician was over – I looked across the room at a mirror propped against the wall.
I looked into my small black eyes and thought my life was over. I was suicidal. I thought I had lost any chance of ever making my dreams a reality. I was so fat I couldn’t recognize myself. Literally, beneath the hundreds of pounds of fat and shattered pieces of my soul, the only things familiar were my eyes. I was this close to ending it all.
And then I heard a small, still voice deep within the chambers of my psyche.
Kitty, choose to fight, one more time. Just once.
That number changed my life. I realized that if I could master a moment once, I could repeat that action and accomplish anything I desired. If I could strengthen one more atrophied muscle, or create one new pathway in my brain, I could lift my leg. If I could lift my leg, I could lift it one more time again, then again.
Eventually I could take one step. Then another. And another.
Anything, and I mean anything, no matter how daunting or seemingly impossible, can be broken down into one piece.
If you can master doing something once, you can master anything you dream of.
What is the one thing you need to master to eventually reach your biggest dream?
Thanks for investing in YOU!
Love, Kitty =^.^=
