Better not Bitter for 2020
Friday, January 03, 2020
This is my philosophy in general, not just for 2020. However, I do allow myself to feel bitter too. I just try to move forward to figure out how each challenge or set back or even heartache can make me better. I think negative feelings have their place as long as we use them to grow and we don't get stuck.
So this year, I will continue to write in my gratitude journal as needed. I will continue to take glorious walks and play outside. I will continue to nourish with healthy foods and have dates with my husband. I will keep making plans with friends. I fill my proverbial cup so high that when life starts sucking away everything, there will still be something left.
I am thrilled that I have been able to maintain a significant weightloss, but this year I push to lose those final pounds to get to the normal range and even give myself wiggle room. I need to get back to tracking. I also need to find new ways to enjoy vegetables and I will be experimenting with some new recipes. I remind myself how fortunate i am to have this challenge. Healthy range is no longer a distant dream. It is within my grasp and I want to embrace it!
Every day I am healthy, get a decent night's sleep and eat healthy food is a gift. Every day my loved ones experience the same is a gift. I would not become better if I had not experienced the bitter. Cheers to living life to it's fullest and enjoying all the good things because of and in spite of the difficult things.
