Dream or Work Hard At It?
You don't have to do everything; just do what really matters!
The first quote came off a friends blog...thanks Cathy...but I read it and it spoke to me. So many times I've dreamed of reaching my goals, how i'll feel, look, the new me with more energy, confidence, and such. But I really don't think I ever stopped to realize the hard work involved. Now I will be honest here, i'm not much on will power. I find I have a lot of won't power. Oh the WANT is there but what had to be done to get there......just too much.
I mean have you thought what we have to give up to get there? I mean no more chips, cookies, candies, pies, cakes, donuts. So much. But did you notice not once in that was there meat, salad, potato, veggies. We can still have it all we just can't have some things that might trigger your body to go nuts. I say body but really around here it is all in the mind. If I don't have that stuff in the house I don't think about it. But if it is here i'm going to eat it. I just will. For me it is a mind thing. So I've come to just not go there. Don't bring it in the house, there problem solved. Or is it?
I work in a pharmacy in Walmart.....so if something is wanted, craved, or seen it sits in the forefront of my mind and I have been known to get it. So what is a girl to do? Well to begin with I bring my snack, I bring my lunch, I do my darndest to clock in and out and head for the door. But on the days I don't succeed....I just do what anyone on a journey would do....I begin anew.
Now I've got to be honest here....I'm not close to goal, oh I have been once, but i'm back where I first began. I was over that but I've lost down a few pounds. Why am I telling you all this? Because I want you to know that this journey is never easy, we always need a pat on the back, a friend, someone to listen, and most of all we need someone to hold us accountable. Because without that we have nothing. So as I end this blog today i'm very honored to have each of you with me on this journey. No matter how many times I fall down, someone is always around to help me back up. But to be honest i'm tired of falling down. I want to be standing up a lot more and down a lot less. But all that comes from within and i'm working on that one.
