For many years I waited around for someone to make me happy--my parents, my sisters, my friends, my husband, my children. It never happened. I was happy at certain moments in time but never for the long run. I finally, after many wasted years, learned that only I can make myself happy. I'm still not the happiest person in the world (who is?) but if I want to be happy, I have to do it myself.
Yesterday's motto on SP was "If it is to be, it is up to me." Wow! There busts another bubble and the start of something new. New thinking. I've tried everything to lose weight--every diet, pills, gastric bypass, you name it. No one and nothing was making me thinner--maybe a little, but not where I need to be. Yesterday it dawned on me that only I can make myself thinner. What a thought. If I am to be healther, I have to do it myself--the hard way. I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner. So simple. No pills, no surgery, no person--just me!
