Put one foot in front of the other

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Lately I've noticed that I've declined in overall health since I graduated from my last stint at college. I've always had a goal to go through my life without the help of medication for my depression. Those that take it and it works for them I'm happy for you guys but I don't think it'd help me.

I need to get back to basics and re-learn all the coping skills I was taught so I can focus and be a more pleasant human being. I can't shun what I don't want to know or hear. I can't let something tiny and unimportant ruin an entire day at work.

If I'm going to talk the talk-I definitely need to walk the walk (no matter how much it hurts my knees).

I know my positive voice is in there trying to be heard. I must listen and find my calm center because I let my balance take a permanent vacation. Therefore it's time to become motivated. emoticon

    You're absolutely right. Sometimes the hardest part is forgiving one's self. I'm way too hard on myself for things that I should let go of. Thanks for the positive energy!

    All of us, no matter where we are in our sparkpeople journey, have to take it one day at a time. When we make mistakes, we have to forgive ourselves, get up, and move on. Sooner rather than later!

    This is a great place to interact with people who understand that this is hard but possible! You CAN do this! Best wishes for reaching your goals!
