THIS IS WHAT I AM REMINDING MYSELF:
Achieving my goals never seems to come easy. There is no accomplishment without work, and no "win" without something to beat. It's easy for me to get discouraged when roadblocks appear-- but I remind myself that it's natural that roadblocks do indeed appear. And, I must continue to remind myself... "PATIENCE!"

I've invested time and emotion into creating my perfect plan, and then something has to come along and muck it all up (like weekend temptations). But I tell myself that all I have to do to beat that barrier is to get back up and move forward again.

Obstacles are like the Wizard of Oz--they're a lot less intimidating once I see them up close. Next time I take a step back I won't let guilt pile it on top of my previous "stumbles"... I'll just move forward and realize that I'm still further along than I was before! It doesn't matter how many walls I face... I only have to get the better of that last one.

Have a GREAT journey... and remember to ELIMINATE EXCUSES that keep you from attaining your goals and you WILL get there. WE ARE STRONG! WE CAN DO THIS!!!

    So true, Camille. This is a marathon, not a sprint - if we keep moving forward, we WILL finish! --Marsha

    Yippeee on that realisation, Camille! You are absolutely correct!

    I've been doing a lot of going sideways and backwards, but every time I really focus and let go of the angst, I actually find myself moving forward! How wonderful is that??

    And I know you're doing the same - I've seen those pics! :)

    Keep up the hard work, girl - it's definitely worth it in the long run, and even in the short run! :)

    Cheers,
    Maya
