Living in the present for ME…MYSELF…and I:
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
I have explored this weight loss journey for years and yet to be successful. Like most things in life I tend to look back into the past and realize what I was or in the future for what I can become, but not in the present for whom I am. I’m at the stage in my life where I have came to realize that I am going to look back into my past for the last time to only realize that I was not successful than and if I continue to live the same I will not be successful now. The past is no longer with me, I no longer have to except what I have became or what I want to become, but who I am now. There is no need to continue with the extra baggage that I have picked up over the years but to leave it in the past where it belongs. I am starting a new slat today, which will help me evaluate who I am and take it one day at a time. Trying to go back to where I was or where I want to be has been a roller coaster for me for years and has not been successful because of the start and stops, the yo-yo diet effects, the diet pills, and the wrong reasons for the change. TODAY I am changing and excepting ME, MYSELF, and I for who we are now for all the right reasons…a healthier ME, because I love MYSELF, and because I deserve it.
"Do you live in tomorrow when you must face today? At times, I forget to live in the moment, but what do I miss? The setting sun, the sound of birds' singing and, most importantly, I miss meeting myself. I am constantly changing, and if I don't spend time with myself in the here and now, I will never get to appreciate who I truly am because I am too busy focusing on who I want to be."
