Letter to Self

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

I have been hard on myself for so long. I have been my own worst enemy. I have lived with chains of self-doubt, poor self image, and bad habits. I hid it so well. On the outside I appeared to be so "together," talented, and strong. Yes, I let my weight get out of hand, but I had everything else together...so it seemed.
Thank you, God, for making me look at the hard truth. Thank you for making me face the demons of my past and giving me a health scare that made me evaluate where I am. Please help me as I dedicate myself to living a fuller life. I know I am 60 and have more life behind me than before me, but I will make the best of the life I have remaining.
I am so excited about how far I have come since January. Losing 45 pounds has given me more energy and stamina. I still have about 30 more pounds to go, but I know I can do it!! I am enjoying compliments on how I look. I am inspiring others to look at their health and determining to make changes. My husband and children are very proud of me. My blood pressure is back to normal.
I have lots of talents to share. I am stronger - mentally, spiritually, and physically. As I put away the self-doubt and put myself to the task of simplifying and de-cluttering my life, I know that I will be able to accomplish a lot in my last years. I am very excited at the prospect!
Thank you, God. I praise You with my life!!!
