I will make no excuses. Lately, I have been falling much more often than I have been getting up. I know the key to success is never giving up and always trying just one more time.
There are personal and emotional pressures that I have been battling. Hopelessness and frustration have led me to start believing that lie that I am worthless and that I will never achieve my goals. But for now on, I am going to choose to base it on the facts:
1.) I HAVE lost over 40 lbs in the last year.
2.) I am capable of making healthy food choices and have become a great cook!
3.) I AM wearing 2 sizes smaller than before
4.) I am able to jog, ride a bicycle, and do sit ups and planks- things that were out of reach for me a few months ago.
5.) I CAN begin again with God's strength and wisdom.
Even if I don't feel it, see it, or think its worth it, I am resolved to do it anyway. It will hurt, I will be tired, and I will rather sleep in. But I will treat this as importantly as my job or any other responsibility.
"I can begin again with the passion of a child.
My heart has caught a vision of a life that's still worthwhile.
And I can reach out again, far beyond what I have done, like a dreamer
who's awakend from a life that's yet to come.
For new beginnings are not just for the young."
