Staying positive

Sunday, March 03, 2013

And so it is Sunday morning and I'm planning day when thoughts of times past pop into my head.

Today is a very close, long time (more than 40 years) friend's 50th birthday, two others have already turned, one more in a week and then I bring up the rear in 18 days. It is strange how fast time goes by.

Then my mind turns to how content I am in my life at this time. Other than the fact I still have 35 pounds to lose. LOL Two years ago I made some decisions. My goal was to change life by the time I hit 50. I went back to school and changed careers after 25 in the same field. I quit smoking. And a whole bunch of little things. The end result has been a more positive and constructive person. I am happy with that. It's really the first time I put myself out there. Previously I didn't do it for fear of failure. Then I started thinking that I had put it out there before and succeeded. Why not for some big changes?

I did. And success was my reward.
Now, I just have to lose this weight and become healthier. I am already on my way.
Stay positive, Cathy Rose...stay positive.

For any of you who read this, if I can do it, you can too. Never doubt yourself, no matter what rubbish anyone else, including yourself, put into your head. Work it....
