Any challenge in life makes us stronger. As I said before I am struggling not to look back at what I have not done but forward to what is possible. I want 2013 to be the year that I embrace the journey at arrive at the place I want to go. Maybe not the final destination but I would like a nice journey towards the kind of body that I would prefer to have.
I would like to be healthier at the end of this journey than I am now.; I would like to be accustomed to healthier foods than I am now. I would like to be fitter than today.
I would like to be accepting that this journey will be work. Some of it up hill and difficult and some of it beautiful. There may be some detours worth taking and some I will clearly be glad to avoid.
But what I could have done in the past does not matter, the goal now is to look at each days journey and find the things that I can like. I want most of all from this journey to shut down the negative chatter in my head. To calm myself in a manner that I would calm others to accept myself in a manner that allows me to stop using so much energy worrying about how I am not doing what I wish I was.
I can learn to be OK with a days choices. i can learn to get where I need to go. I can learn to love the journey and be happy with who I am and how I am achieving new goals.
