It's NOW

Sunday, December 02, 2012

I have made so many promises to myself that I would change my lifestyle. That I would make my health my priority. I have broken ALL of those promises. What's so great about life and about the God that I worship is I have another day, another chance, a new beginning.

Just when I was feeling so great, I injured my knee. I didn't know how badly until the surgery and found it it was really hurt. Four different surgeries. And it hurts worse than ever. So yes, I'm discouraged. I'm depressed. That doesn't mean I can't do some things that are good and healthy because doing nothing makes everything worse. I have NEVER been in such bad shape in every way, but today is a start over, a day when I will be do and not just say.

Thanks for all of your encouragement and support. Things will get better and I will get better and be stronger so I can LIVE while I can. Have a day filled with love and doing good things for yourselves and your health!

    Sorry to hear of your plight. Sadly, these things happen. One just needs to pick themselves up and charge forward. The thing that has helped me when I have injuries or "limitations", is to watch some of those folks out there with NO arms or limbs, etc. that continue to say, "SO WHAT". It makes our limitations and setbacks look so much smaller in comparison. So heal up, but don't let your setback define or limit the many other things you can do to continue on this healthy lifestyle. God bless and watch over you.

    I know what you mean about breaking promises to one's self...something we'd never think of doing to others, right? God gives us each new day to start over, to do better, to be our's up to us to take full advantage of that blessing. Each step and positive choice brings us closer to our goals. Keep your positive attitude b/c you can do it...and, you're so worth it. emoticon
