Every so often, my 8 year old daughter comes home with a badge her teacher gives her. It says "My name is FEEL STRONG!" on it. She receives it when she manages to overcome any challenges she has and she does the right thing, even though it's difficult sometimes for her.
I loved it so much, I even wrote a song for it. The lyrics are incredibly deep. Okay, maybe not so deep, but it has the advantage that it's very easy to memorize.
When I'm having a really difficult day I sometimes remember this and start singing it. Or when I really am proud of myself for just working hard even when I want to go to sleep I sing this song. (Two weeks before Passover, this was sung a lot for instance!)
So, after awhile of not taking care of myself enough, and feeling that there's no way I'm gong to be able to stop grazing or I have to say my name is feel strong. I've been back to tracking my weight and exercising for a couple of weeks now and I hope I can be consistent this time. I know I'm off to a good start, and, b'ezras Hashem, (with the help of Gd), I can do it.
My name is FEEL STRONG.
