Starting anew....those words used to haunt me every time I would start again at trying to be a healthier me. Others would support me, but inside I knew they were thinking, "what makes you so sure this time? You've failed before?". I knew they were thinking this because each time I would be thinking the exact same thing.
I said those words again recently but this time I don't feel haunted. The reason being, is I learned something about myself from finally quitting smoking, which I also attempted over and over again. What I learned is that it may take many times and that's okay, it just shows that I won't quit trying and that makes me a winner.
2 Steps forward, one step back.....but keeping taking those two steps forward and even though you may slide back over and over again, eventually those steps forward overcome the ones that take you back.
I can't wait until I can say I finally overcame, but I will not be haunted again with self-doubt. I know I can make this happen one step at a time.
