You May Have To Fight A Battle More Than Once To Win It...

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

In one of my Spark emails, this greeted me...

Margaret Thatcher once said "You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it," and she was absolutely right. You've got to believe that you will succeed! Never admit defeat as long as time and effort remain. Our greatest asset is patience; our greatest weakness is throwing in the towel. Banish discouragement and feelings of impossibility by working hard, doing more, and not giving in! A diamond was only made beautiful after millions of years as a lump of coal.

This line by Margaret Thatcher REALLY got me thinking. I've definitely been fighting in this battle for quite some time. However, the important thing I need to always remember is that I do and will continue to fight.

I am a woman on a mission to reach her greatest dreams. My WANT is too big. I want to be healthy. I want to wear skinnie minnie clothes. I want to be able to run with my daughter and just keep up with her in general. I want to be a great mother, wife, daughter, friend and employee. I want to travel. I want to be doing all that life has to offer & that intrigues me. And I know that I'm a woman of determination who 9 times out of 10 will get what she wants. I just need to remember that it will be in God's time, not mine. I can do anything with Him by my side in this battle and on my journey! One baby step at a time, I will conquer my goals and fight this battle. No matter what it takes, I will fight til the end and NEVER GIVE UP! I am worth it and I deserve it!

Are you willing to fight the battle more than once to win it? Because you are worth it & deserve it!

    We'll fight the battle as many times as it takes to win it!!! emoticon
Personally I think I'm getting rather good at fighting this battle. It no longer feels like a battle every single day. Now it feels like a way of life with a little challenge thrown in for good measure once in awhile.
I am relishing the challenges. They make me stronger and teach me more about who I am.
I say bring on the battle!!! I will live to fight another day! emoticon
