As i've been struggling for so very long it seems, I finally sat down and read a few old journal entries. I came across this one and I felt I needed to share. It helped me to open my eyes to a few things.....like I am doing ok. Oh i'm not at goal and it may be some time before I do but i'm not quitting and I have learned some new ways of life that I still use daily. So allow me to share this old post from 2009 and maybe it may just open your eyes to how far you've come and didn't even realize it.
i want to just leave a note letting you know all that you have accomplished this past year. just in case you are thinking it was a bust.
number one, you accepted the lord jesus christ as your lord and savior. you got bapatized, something you have always wanted and never had the nerve to do.
number two, you are down 13 pounds from last year. kudos to you on this. you stuck with something michelle. and that is a leap of faith for you. maybe this coming year will bring a new and better you.
number three, you have your health. it is much better and you are a happier person, ;though sometimes you question this. don't.
number four, you have awesome kids. they may worry you but don't. you have given them the tools they need, they just have to use them.
and last of all, you have todd. you have celebrated 15 years together. 15, wow, and you have a wonderful home, and the dogs. don't forget the dogs.
so as you move onto this coming new year strive for even better in the new year. you can, you are strong.
Now a journalist i'm not but I do use my spark journal to get out feelings, leave myself a note, or a quote. It is always nice to go back and again see how far we have come.
Thanks for the time
