I have been committed to my plans to eat better and exercise more. Not to say that I couldn't do more....we can always do more. But my goals have been realistic this time. I am more flexible and know that I am going to slip. Do you know what happens when you do that.....you get back and keep putting one foot in front of the other. Day in and day out! That is all anyone can ask you to do.
Dh and I just got backed from the Scentsy Family Reunion in Indianapolis a week or so ago. It was life changing and eye opening. Brought me a renewed sense of self. That I can do anything I set my mind to. That is ok to make mistakes. You learn from them, you get up and you try again. I have come to realize that I don't have to make everyone else happy all the time. That the world will not come crashing down if you don't like me. I am a good person and a WORTHY person. And for those that don't agree....oh well....to bad for you!
I think one of my new goals is to help others realize this. I can't say one thing or another made me finally realize it. I wish I could because that would make helping others a whole lot easier! But I can't. I have a dear friend who tells me that almost every day yet I still just didn't get it. I believe that there is a lot of us out there who don't. Who don't realize that being yourself is what it is all about. Believing in yourself makes the difference. What others think....really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.
