One Step...

Friday, January 11, 2013

I recently heard someone say... maybe they were quoting a famous proverb... I'm not sure ... but, the words spoke to me.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step".
That is exactly what I am doing today. I am taking one step forward toward health. I'm not sure of the exact distance of my journey. Or, how much time will be required to arrive at my destination. But, what I do know is:

hmmmm... Actually, I don't know anything....ha ha ha ha THAT is EXACTLY WHY I am starting a weight loss "journey" again.
I know it will require a lot of work... Okay, maybe I do know this.

In the past I would start this endeavor with ZEST and VIGOR... Every word that would come out of my mouth would be dripping with health and positivity... but, to be quite honest...
I'm scared. I'm not feeling all that healthy or positive. I'm down right scared. Scared for my life... scared that if I do NOT change something now...
Sigh... Well, you get the picture.
I'm also scared of failing... again.
I never thought that i would be this person... a person paralyzed by fear.
Doesn't it seem strange... afraid of change? Our Lives are ALWAYS changing... so, HOW can a person be afraid this?! It is a given. hmmm.... leave it to me to be afraid of what I have no control over. h ah ah haha
Anyways, that is my truth.
BUT, I will try to take one step forward... one step forward, toward health, everyday... So, my journey does not end.
