So I have been on this site for almost three years now and have made no progress. In fact, I have gained weight since I initially joined. But, I am still here and I am still willing to fight. When you are so used to living and thinking one way it is hard to picture your life as anything else. But, we all have the power to change our lives.
I will be turning 27 in less than a week!!!! 27 is a scary number! Just surviving my 27th year will be a big accomplishment because not everyone makes it to 28! (this can be said about every age, but this one is more relevant in my life)
This "27" realization has me panicking. This is not where I imagined myself at 27. I'm so hard on myself. I can't help but to analyze the past and worry about the future. But, there is a time in our lives where we have to move on from the "should of, could of, would of" mentality. Dwelling on the past and future doesn't fix past mistakes and doesn't prevent future challenges. Dwelling on these things prevent us form living in the present.
All I can do is pledge to make my 27th year the year I truly changed my life!
This is the year I find my confidence!
This is the year I dsicover who I am!
This is the year I take chances!
This is the year I learn to fight!
The is the year I become an overcomer!
You have to listen to the song "Overcomer" by Mandisa. This is my anthem for this year...or even for my life. You cannot listen to this song without feeling motivated.
