How To Walk The Walk – by Kat McCarthy

Walking the walk can mean a lot of different things but it is never passive in nature. In fact, walking the walk is always extremely dynamic; make a decision and then participate – decide then engage – decide then take action.

Walking the walk is simple (though not easy sometimes). JUST DO IT! Don’t spend your energy talking about it unless it gives you more energy. The key to walking the walk is to go do it.

There was a time in my life when I didn’t feel like my body was strong enough. I could have spent my time talking about that with folks or complaining about it, I could have felt sad OR I could start moving.

And here is the important part: I could move from my place of weakness or I could embrace the strength I said I wanted. I could shuffle through small easy movements or I could make big strong movements that challenged me because I didn’t really feel them yet. I had to accept that I was capable of more then I believed I was.

If we want to be stronger, we need to move with more strength by putting in that little bit of extra effort; go a little deeper then is comfortable. And that applies to everything. Anything you want more of, has a movement you must push your limits and engage with your own dreams and desires.

Happy moving.

I am the founder and CEO of the popular online magazine, The Magic Happens: Humanity Thriving Out Loud. I am also the managing editor and chief discoverer of talent. The Magic Happens is my passion and the work that I put the most time into. I am a believer. I believe in what is happening right now. I believe in 'the happiness movement.' LOA is really cool and it is also a universal marketing scheme. What that means is: "the Universe had to give us a reason to be happy before we would actually choose to be happy." Us Humans would never even consider a happiness movement without knowing what was in it for us Humans. LOA taught us what is in it for us. Now we can just relax and celebrate - be happy for happiness' sake. I am the river. I am the buoyancy that holds The Magic Happens aloft. TMH is about thriving, thriving is about being happy. Thriving and happiness are both choices. We choose to be happy.. Or Not.. I/we, therefore, offer you choices. We virtually hold your hand while you explore the new choice. While you explore a new perspective so that you can see yourself thriving. So you can see yourself happy. Join us. Read with us. Love us, as we love you. :) If you write, join us and discover the value of support among people who care about your passion and success.

    Kat, it is truly all about just moving – going a little further each time. There was a period where I could not do a single pull up -now I can do five per set. Yoga poses the same way – the more I just concentrate on going slightly further, the more growth happens. Thanks for being you!
