Self confidence is undoubtedly a must for anyone to make it through life with a semblance of sanity. I, however, seem to have lost my self confidence somewhere along the way, thus making me insane. I keep feeling so frumpy and not cute.
I follow some really fabulous blogs that offer such great motivation and tips for weight loss and healthy lifestyles, but sometimes I get bogged down in how wonderful they are, and I feel less wonderful because of it.
I’m comparing my every day to their snippets. I am a real person who has extra fat, has a job, goes to school, and is planning a wedding (thank God that will be over in two months!). I’m normal, just like everyone else. Everyone has hundreds of things going on in their life that no one knows about.
I have GOT to get it together and give myself a break. I also have to keep at my goals. I have this TERRIBLE habit of just quitting when I get frustrated, which is why this last 20 pounds is about to kill me.
I CAN do it. I CAN reach my goals. I CAN get the body I want. I CAN do whatever I want, as long as I stick to it. *tapes post it note to forehead “DO NOT QUIT”*
I leave you with food for thought:
“Any experience can be transformed into something of value. Everything depends on the way you look at things. You cannot have the success without the failures.”
