Okay, you are so very very right Maya and thanks for the kick in the pants.. I very much need to stop skipping meals the Dr. has told me the same thing.. right now I know most of that is my illness just making me very scatterbrained.. but I need to keep trying.. I think I perhaps need to set reminders for myself on the computer to go off at breakfast, lunch and dinnertime .. so I will remember.. !!! Yea that's a great idea... problem solved! In fact THANKS FOR THE REMINDER.. it's yet still just 7:48 and I will go have breakfast right now!!!!
I wanted to copy and past the Healthy reflection here because I would like myself to reread this as I think it makes a ton of sense.. so this is mostly for me.. but hey if you want to comment feel free I think it's a great concept.. trying to stamp everything into my brain that I learn here :)
Persistence. Persistence. Persistence.
We keep hearing about how persistence is often the key to success. But what do you do when you've been striving for so long that it seems like your goal is never going to see light? How do you deal with the fear that you're about to fail? Simple. Give it just one more shot. And then one more. Think about the sweat and time you've committed already. You've come this far, you'd be unfair to yourself if you quit without a fight. Even if the odds are way out of your favor and you can't see how it can possibly help, reach out and take one last swing. You never know what will happen. Big, meaningful achievements don't just happen when everything goes your way. How many times have you seen tennis players make miraculous winning shots while lunging for a ball that seemed impossible to reach? Sometimes, you can find victory in the effort.
