Can't Go Back, But Don't Have to Stay Here
Monday, March 04, 2013
This little phrase popped into my thoughts this morning and I'm finding it inspirational today. No, I can't go back. I can't change how I've behaved or what I have eaten. I can't go back to where I was a year (and 20 lbs) ago. BUT! But I don't have to stay in this miserable in-between place, feeling sorry for myself and not liking how I am right now.
Every moment of every day is another chance to make a positive choice, to do something good for me - be it eating a healthy snack instead of the candy in the breakroom or exercising today even though I haven't for the past few months. I don't have to stay turned around, looking backward and longing for the success I had and lost. I can change right here, right now- and that's a very good thing.
