Getting back on track

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I'm feeling much better getting back on track but it is difficult after the over indulgence of the Holidays. I made a resolution to forgive myself as easily as I forgive others for any missteps. It only makes sense really. Why are we always so much harder on ourselves?
Someone once told me, "Take care of yourself first. You are no good to anyone else if you are not healthy and rested." Why did it take me so long to really get that?
Well, I do get it now and that's what's important to me. This journey is taking much longer than I first expected but that's okay too. Maybe I was meant to struggle to find out what I really wanted and needed. I am getting there though.
By revising my expectations I hope I have smoothed the road of my journey but if it doesn't, then so be it. I still fully intent to finish - no matter what. It may take longer or it may be shorter. Whatever, it is MY journey.
May the road rise up to meet you all.

    I agree about the length of the journey. Mine is long also. I agree too with everyone that it is a blessing because once we get to the destination we'll be more grateful. I'm glad I'm on this trip with you - otherwise it would be so hard!!

    I think when to takes longer it will stay longer. We all know about the fad dieting which does not work but the healthy lifestyle is slower, harder because we are I patient, but it is the only one that works for a lifetime. We are I this together and we will plod along together and become healthy together!

    I always think getting back on track is harder than staying on track. Congrats on revising your expectations and moving in the right directions for you.
