It's my time

Monday, January 07, 2013

I joined SP last year in September knowing I needed something to help me pull myself together. I was sure if I found it I would succeed. At the time I didn't consider that I had been looking for a LONG time and hadn't found it yet. I was stuck in the I need to be accountable to something/someone but never believed enough in myself to be accountable to ME. So needless to say I did nothing but slide further into the pit until NOW :)

When I joined SP I made my page and wrote about guilt and feelings of inadequacy. Today I know that being fit, healthy, skinny .... is not goign to change that. I am choosing a different path today. I am choosing to nurture me - mind body and spirit. I am no longer waiting for someone to do it for me.

I am holding myself accountable for loving myself enough to reach for the things I want. I will acknowledge the negative thought demon in my head but I will not let those thoughts rule me. I will use accountability to help me succeed but never again will I think "no one will know" I WILL KNOW!!

Today is a new day, a better day and yesterday was pretty good so today is going to ROCK. I am off to do a SP video before I start my day because I will know if I slack off :)

    I'm glad you found SP and have started back anew. I have been here almost a year and each day brings some new tidbit of info, whether thru the articles, friend's blogs and more. I hope that I can offer you any support and friendship you need!

    The only way to succeed at anything, is to take 1 step at a time and be happy with it! If you fall pick yourself up, if you take a step back, if you stall, just take a step toward your goal, no matter how small!
