Just Believe...

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, January 21, 2012




For so many years I have pounded in my head that no matter what I did, that I was destined to live a miserable life. Destined to die early, I was going to eat my life away. I already had it in my head that I was never going to see my girls grow up and have babies of their own. I was constantly thinking that the love of life was going to leave me.

Then one day something just clicked....



I had to tell myself that I DID deserve better. That I COULD change and be happy. I do NOT have to gorge myself every time I eat until I feel sick. That one day I WILL be able to jog that 5K.



If you are struggling...you have to get over the mental part of it. For 20 + years I fought demons in myself telling me that I couldn't do it. I was to big, I had already crossed the point of no return, I was not worth the trouble. Guess what? I was wrong.




You have to believe in yourself! Think about your life...is it going in the direction you want it to? Only you have the power to change it. Start today if you haven't already.



What are you waiting for? Start living!

    Hmmm...some many excellent points here :)
Love the poster things too...lol...number 2 was my favorite...

"every second is a chance to change your life"

Totally my theory...when things get rough...that you can make decisions one second/moment/choice at a time...

    Thank you...I'm just starting out and I've thought the same things over the years and have been down on myself. I realize I have to change my way of thinking...it's just a bit rough right now. I became disabled back in 2001 and it's hard losing my mobility.I miss the simple things in life I enjoyed..walking..riding bikes..hiking..camping..climbing stairs...I'm at a low point today :'(
I need help.....I liked your motivational pics of encouragement. Thanks

    I can definitely identify with everything you said here! Having been a depressed person for the better part of my life, it is such a freeing realisation to know that anything is possible and see things in a new light.

Here's to living :)
