Why am I here?

Monday, January 12, 2015

I decided a long time ago that I wasn't going to fall victim to anything in this life if it was something I had control over. If I can make a change in myself and it's for the good, then I will not allow myself to not try because of fear of failure, but knowing that I have to start somewhere in order to get the results I want, and from there I can achieve success!
I am here because I wanted to be a healthy person and I wanted to have more energy for those I love! I am a believer that our destinies are partly controlled by God, but the rest of it is up to us! I believe God leads us down the roads he feels is best for us!

I decided that I am not going to be a quitter, but a survivor! I decided God made me to withstand certain things in this lifetime, and that he never gives me more then I can handle!
These are powerful words to live by, and I try to practice these words every day! Especially with a New Year here I have reasons to keep motivating myself to set more goals and to strive above what I have achieved so far!
Why are you here? I bet the answer is that we are all here for similar reasons, and we need to help motivate one another and keep each other accountable so we can achieve the success that we set out to do!

    Well, truth is, why and I started and why I'm still here are slightly different reasons. My reason for being here for just about 4 years is because I absolutely love the impact it has had on my life. I literally "Thank God" for SP and I thank God for my ability to maintain. Glory to HIM alone.

    I love reading your blog. What you're writing are your daily affirmations.

    What a good question: why are you here? I certainly think it's to be the best we can be and help others.

    You go, girl. Be healthy. You can do this.
