Not impossible!

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

There was a day, not too long ago that I didn't think it was possible for me to feel good again, physically or emotionally. I'm soo happy those thoughts and days are way behind me now. I KNOW without a doubt that I will be seeing a new me sooner than I even realize.

Yes, I have many months and pounds to go before I'll be at maintenance, but that is very ok with me. I'm not worried I won't make it, I KNOW I will. Like the caterpillar that hides away in a cocoon to transform, that is the process I'm in now. I'm not finished, but I can feel the changes inside and outside of me. I can feel the cocoon shell thinning letting in some light now. Just like the butterfly, there is still much work to be done before I will be completely transformed and ready to fly, but I will get there. Also like the butterfly, I have to do it on my own. If an emerging butterfly is helped out of its cocoon it can't survive on its own. It must do the work, build the strength and have the patience to hang while its wings dry to be the strongest it can be. I can relate to that, and I have the courage and patience to get to the strong me I'm becoming.
