It is so important when you are making changes in your life that you have to be positive and keep the fire alive in your heart and soul in order to succeed. BUT often or not, there are just those negative people in your life that you absolutely cannot avoid and you have to stay focused.
For example, I made the small change (every small change counts!!) of drinking coffee with tons of sugar, flavored creamer, and half &half to straight black coffee.
Folks that are close to me can say that is a big change but there are a few that say, "Oh... that's not a change at all! Blah Blah Blah..." or "I still drink my coffee with creamer and sugar cuz I can!" or the infamous "Eww. Why?? That is so disgusting!"
All that matters is I made the change FOR ME! If you do not agree that's fine! I enjoy my coffee black and save a little time as well! (lol) Do not let other people's opinions on whatever you decided to change for YOURSELF impact the dedication you have to making that change happen!
There are times that negative ocassions have caused us to make the decision to start this journey and I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. All the negative events that happened in my life has made into a stronger person because of it and I truly believe that all the negative people I have encountered in my life has taught me what not to become.
Yes, there are moments when you have to deal with awful situations all at once but you have to keep that hope up because eventually, THINGS WILL GET BETTER!!
I'm not just saying that either, there have been times when all this negativity occurs all at once and sometimes you have to go through with it to make your a stronger person and sometimes you have to make a choice to change your situation.
We are all here because we want to make a difference in our lives, we are tired of all this extra weight we carry around, we are tired of all the medical issues we have to endure because of it, and we are tired of being tired! Even though I don't know most of you in "real life" I still support you all and I know you all support me. It is nice knowing that I have that and I'm sure that in your lives you have some people that don't support you at all. I know I do and I'm out to prove them wrong and make people proud of me!
You guys keep your chins up!! I'm rooting for us all!!
Have an excellent, splendid weekend!!
Lots of love!
