If you quit you'll never know what you could have done!
I have read so many things about how to develop a good habit in 30 days, 6 weeks, 8 weeks, even up to 12 weeks.
Are they kidding?
Would you like to know how long it took me?
Yup, altho I doubt that is a record for those of us who tend to be rebellious! LOL!
It took 7 months to "get it".
It took 7 months to "use it".
It took 7 months to realize- I like this better.
It took 7 whole months.
Do I like that it took so long? Heck NO!
In fact I've often quit dieting/exercising so early; that I had no idea how long or even "if" I could really do it.
So my point is, PLEASE!!! Do not quit. You will "get it". Will it take you 7 months? Or 2 years? It doesn't really matter does it. It matters only that you/we don't quit! If we quit we'll never know what could have been.
I'm the kind of person who hates to wait for anything. When my oldest daughter was a teen, I'd drop her at the door of the grocery store to run in for milk. I'd park and wait. Problem was she liked to look around. I can't sit parked long- I get stir crazy! So I'd circle the parking lot. This made her mad! LOL! (Bless her heart, she's in Heaven now.) She couldn't find me.
This time I appreciated the wait I had, to learn what I needed. And I have a new appreciation for waiting.
The secret to how I lasted 7 months this time when I'd always quit early?
This is the best kept secret on the planet, for us all.
Believe me I thought of quiting after 12 weeks. But that's not a good habit, that's a bad habit!
My Spark Friends have pulled me through, held me up, and cheered me on.
Thank You! Your friendship is priceless. And I value each of you. I can never repay you.
I hope I can return the favor. That keeps me here too. I want you to succeed too!
All my love with and prayers for you!
