Chasing dreams

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

This is Molly. Molly's dream is to catch a squirrel. She knows where to find them and she knows the best way to catch them -- stalk and then all-out-run. Sometimes she encounters obstacles -- like me holding her leash -- and sometimes she gets stuck in the stalk and doesn't move on. Molly has never caught a squirrel (thankfully) but she has never given up on her dream. Each day she does what she can to achieve it.

This is me. My dream is to reach a healthy weight. I know where to find help to reach my goal and I know I need to eat healthy and get moving. Sometimes I encounter obstacles and sometimes I get stuck in old habits. I haven't reached my goal yet but I don't ever want to give up on my dream. I intend to follow Molly's example and spend each day doing what I can to achieve MY dream.

    I like this. Pets and children keep it simple. It's us grown up people that like to complicate things. I'm so glad I'm sharing your journey with you.

    What a good way to write about our journey. An excellent analogy as Beth put it. We all have dreams and if we keep trying eventually we'll reach the goal of our dreams.
    Short, sweet, accurate and pet friendly.
    Have a good week chasing your dream.
