Am I the only one?

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Just wondering, does anyone else ever find themselves moving forward, making progress, and then bam you're right back where you were? I don't mean just with diet and exercise either. Certainly in those areas, but what about in your spiritual life, your relationships, your work life, etc? I suppose it's the age old, unanswered question...but I'm gonna ask it anyway. Why do we always/sometimes go back to the thing that has made us unhappy, That isn't who we want to be, that wasn't what we were looking for. Why CHOOSE to go back to that thing that makes us miserable? Lately, I've been doing a lot of soul searching, because frankly, I have a crap attitude. I've always been a glass half empty kind of girl, even when I try not to be. My anger, pride, and tendency to hold a grudge really get in my way. This is a huge wall
between me and God...life really. I don't HAVE to be this way, but I CHOOSE
to. Why? It's not who I wanna be. I know I need to spend some time in
prayer about said things, and God will show the way to me I'm sure...and I
just have to get my stubborn rear end into His plan. Satan get behind me!
Ain't nothing getting this girl down!

    It's about getting out of your comfort zone. You may not like where you were, but it was familiar. Any change is hard and there will be setbacks. The difference is if you pick yourself up and keep trying or not. People stay in bad relationships because it's easier to stay the same than to risk change. The same goes for relationships with food, work, or whatever.

    Yes, I find myself moving forward, making progress, and then bam I'm right back where I was. In my spiritual life, my relationships, my everyday life, etc? I'll go through these days talking to God and some how and in some way, I'll have a day where I just get up and it's changed. I can't explain it. You are not the only one. Keep up the fight and hang in there.

    Great the first thing you must acknowledge that there is a problem. Next if haven't already done so, talk to the ONE that can change everything. Make up your mind that you will not be any of those negative things that makes you feel like crap. If you can make up your mind to lose weight, why not use that same zeal to change. Get beyond the barriers of the past and expect God to do great things in your life. Will keep you in prayer!
