Keep on Keeping On!

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Yesterday the weather, after nearly a week of spring temperatures and sunshine, reverted to winter "misery." Since I was feeling cold, I reached into the closet for something warm and cozy to wear. The maroon sweater, which has resting on a shelf for over a year, seemed to call my name. Reluctantly, I tried it on, expecting that it would still be too tight to wear comfortably and that I would need to place it back on its shelf for another trial in the future. As you probably guessed, the sweater fit, and it fit very comfortably! Oh, how I loved wearing it again! It is proof that I am making strides toward becoming the me I want to be!

Wearing the sweater reminded me there are important changes happening, even if the numbers on the scale appear to decrease slowly! The happiness which I experienced yesterday was my reward for continuing to use patience and determination--for keeping on!

I often have heard that Rome was not built in a day! I am aware that the new me, which I seek, will not happen as quickly as I wish. However, today I feel empowered that I will reach my goal!
