I tied my shoes all by myself

Friday, June 22, 2012

emoticon This is not something you usually hear from a 44 year old, but for me kneeling do to tie my own shoes use to be a trial. I had to sit down and bring my foot up to me. And when we're out someone else, usually my daughter or grandson, had to tied them for me.

The other day I was out and they came untied. It was a emoticon day. I was feeling like I could do anything. Besides I was tired of tripping over them. I said to myself, "I've been working out. My legs are stronger. Maybe I can. Then that emoticondark voice spoke, " You are going to fall on your butt. You can't do it."

For a moment I listen, but then I almost fell. Then I realized that falling on my butt because I Tried to tied them was better then not trying. So I tried. And for the first time in years I tied my shoes all by myself.

I know this is a baby step to most but to me this is a step on the moon to me. I almost cried in the store. Seeing my clothes get looser is great. Doing things that had been difficult for me or trying new things is greater. Have more belief in myself and trying to do better is the greatest.

I don't know how this post would have turned out if I had fallen. Right now I just want to celebrate this success. And to have a reminder to keep trying those times when I do fall.

Keep Trying. Take Chances. Become Stronger and Better emoticon

    I would say this was a pretty big step. Personal success is a powerful motivator

    Sometimes it's the little victories that mean the most!

Just now I was sitting here reading this, and I rested my chin on my palm and realized that my face feels thinner...I can feel my jawline much more than I used to be able to when resting in this position! Yay!

Keep up the good work and enjoy those moments of victory! You've earned them! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
