Muscle Building

I went to the gym once.  

How is it that I instinctively know that because I went to the gym once that I’m not gonna be ripped, cut, shredded, and all those other scissor metaphors? 

My physique is soft, a little round in places I’d rather it be straight... but I know that to change that it will take repeated, consistent action on my part. 

Why then would I think my mental and emotional body would be any different than my physical one? 

Why would I think that because I journaled and went to therapy today that I will be forever changed?  

When we see things differently I find it true that we can’t unsee certain things about ourselves... but that doesn’t mean that we are good at or strong in doing things differently. That requires consistent action.
