5 years later I begin yet again

Saturday, March 21, 2015

At some point I just gave in and gave up! I handed my power over to external events because I just became so tired of trying to fight it and overall just plain "tired!" I wallowed in self pity, ate whatever was convenient and parked myself on the couch after work every day and on the weekends - only doing what absolutely needed to be done. A MAJOR pity party!
So now that I'm well rested I'm ready to take control of my life, my health, my well being and my happiness. I'm actually getting a big chuckle out of this - me - acting so helpless and pitiful. People have told me that what they admire the most about me is my fortitude and strength, as well as my sense of humor (however warped it may seem at times). Maybe I needed to be more vulnerable to realize I'm only human even though I feel like I need to be superwoman all the time. The sun is always shining even when we can't see it through the clouds! And I've literally have seen many rainbows after a storm.

So I begin my journey towards healthy living again - for my body, my mind and my spirit. And I plan on getting there using my sense of humor which has gotten me though the darkest times.

Keep works when you work it!
