Stay Down Long Enough and You Might Get Trampled!
Monday, May 28, 2012
I have fallen off the wagon so many times, but the one great thing I can say is I've always 1. got back up and 2. come back better than the time before! Everyone at one point or another falls, but the question is, do you stay there? If you think about being in a crowd and falling, if you you just stay there sooner or later someone (or lots of people) are going to trip on you!
Just on Friday, I had a wonderful day! I went to the spa and had a blast with my mom and sister. It was like the calm before the storm. That evening my niece started having a temper tantrum and then the following morning my father acted like he usually does (not a good thing). Needless to say, I was just really not in a good place.

After Sunday worship, my mom and I decided to go out to eat (with my niece). I'll be honest, I have been eating out a lot this week, but I still enjoyed myself and the food was very clean at the restaurant and low in sodium. Yes, I'm looking on the bright side.
Today is a new day and is even better than the day before! I'm feeling good. I'm sure I'll slip up again along the way, because 'life happens', but I know I'll get back up again and be better than ever!
