Embracing the Dance in a Storm
Sunday, July 01, 2012
A friend of mine posted on FB a quote that I read this morning, I couldn't help but feel how appropriate.
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass,
its about learning how to dance in the rain.
Though the only thing I have done differently during the month of June was drink much more water, I slowly am gaining weight. A pound a week. I knew there was always a deep reasoning why I never would award myself that next 10 pound increment of loss until I was successfully 5 pounds into that mark. In this case we are talking about me having lost 60 pounds thus far. Nope, now that I am writing this I did do something else different, I bought a used stationary rower and I did that for 30 mins on the days I didn't walk...
Well to get to why I mention the quote;
to me the storm refers to my weight and it's gain. I know I am doing things right but it's extremely disappointing to see a gain, any gain whether it's a pound, 4 pounds or even 4 ounces.
to me dancing in the rain refers to embracing the accomplishments that I know I have achieved. Sure I won't post the 60 pound award, but you know what? I didn't quit. I haven't given up and I won't quit. I won't give up.
I hope that those of you who read this blog can understand your individual storms and learn to dance to that which pours from it. Embrace your accomplishments and achievements but never lose yourself in what makes you stand out. Another storm may come and we will all have to learn a new dance.
