While things certainly aren't perfect, they could definitely be much, much worse. I haven't reached my goal weight yet, in fact I still have quite a ways to go. HowEVER, I AM on the right path, enjoying the journey, living in the moment, paying close attention to the little things and remembering to be grateful for today cuz tomorrow really IS promised to no one.
The following songs have been in heavy rotation in my car and when I'm at the gym primarily because they seem to encapsulate my overall mood lately. Positivity is the name of the game folks--and there's no time like the present. If we continually wait for life--to reach the right weight or the right time or the right someone else, well, we might find ourselves waiting a long time. Why not manufacture it ourselves and then spread it around?
(This last one is especially important to me...the lyrics say it all. Makes me so happy that it brings me to tears--of joy. )
I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
