It's time for me to move forward...again. I lost myself for a bit. I didn't bounce back as quickly this time. But I didn't beat myself up about it...progress! I allowed myself the time I needed. I still may take a few more days... But I will begin. And I will continue. And I will succeed! I am NOT giving up on me. Yes I've gained some weight back, yes I'm out of shape. But I'm still not where I was when I first joined SP. And I've grown in so many other ways that can't be measured.
2013 was a difficult year. Actually the past few years have been difficult. But this is life. I'm going to focus on the positive aspects of life. I started already. There will be sad times but I'll grieve and move on. There will be challenges but I'll face them, do what I can and not stress out. There will be laughter and I'll laugh the loudest... a good, hearty belly laugh!! Those always feel so great! ...and maybe jiggling the middle can count as exercise??? Burn some calories???
One of my fellow sparkers wrote about finding one word to focus on for the new year. I'm waiting for my word. It will come to me and when it does I'm going to write it in big letters and post it everywhere. Meanwhile I'm going to continue to focus on the positive things in my life.
