I came upon this majestic oak tree today on my walk/run and called it "His Majesty". It has obviously stood the test of time and I know for a fact that this wonderful specimen has withstood some pretty ugly and torturous moments of weather in the years in it's life. What a testament to time.
Two years ago a tornado actually whipped within 100 feet of the oak destroying many other trees in it's path. This tree must have endured lots of nature's fury over the years. Obviously it has also known nature's bounty and has flourished in this spot in spite of what must have surely been some uncertain days.
Sometimes I really have to Self-Motivate and it can be a struggle. I have uncertain moments and days myself, more often then I would care to. Today I asked myself, will I stand the test of time? My weight loss journey has been a successful one, up to this point. But lately I feel like I am on very shaky ground. I have been expending less calories and consuming more and we all know what that means. (Where did I store those FAT CLOTHES?)
I have really got to get back into my tree. I have strong roots in solid ground and I know where to get my nourishment so that I may grow strong and flourish like "His Majesty". The Spark Community has the tools that I need to continue on my successful weight loss and fitness journey. Today I am making the choice to use them and together we will stand the test of time.
Oh and BTW, the tree was a case of mistaking identity. Excuse me, please.....it is "Her Majesty". I should've known the strength and beauty of a woman when I seen it.
Hail to The Queen!
