*I'm not where I should be but I'm definitely not where I used to be * You see even when you are not perfect but you still keep chugging along... PROGRESS HAPPENS!
But I can't WANT IT for you, you have to WANT IT for you, you have to be willing to put in the #sweatequity yourself, you have to be willing to #educateyourself before you will make that #change and be #commited
I remember it took me 2 years after I had my son before I realized I had to do this, that NO ONE will make it happen but me, NO ONE could want it for me. I remember having a conversation one night with my husband, after many times him and I agreed that Monday we would get on track.... Only to find that when one of us fell off the other followed suit this was a cycle that went on for 2 years so I finally made a commitment to myself ( the convo I had with my hubby that night) that NO MATTER what I was going to make this change. Whether hubby did or not. I had to do this for me. ( Not saying hubby doesn't support me or that he doesn't strive for a healthy lifestyle as well) I'm simply saying I no longer could LEAN on my husband, USE him as a CRUTCH, BLAME him if I feel off... I had to go on and drop my EXCUSES and get it DONE with or with out him. I had to learn to lean on Jesus alone to show me that I am strong enough to make that change, that I deserve to love myself, that loving and taking care of myself is not being selfish, it's being selfless! To be a better wife, mother, and all around a better person we need to take care of ourselves .... My point is.... You cannot BLAME anyone or anything for you not LOVING you, for not being HAPPY when you look in the mirror, for your lack of AMBITION and DRIVE, for your funky attitude, or your poor relationships.... .... You want CHANGE? Then CHANGE YOU!!!!! That's the answer... That is the secret key to a happy, stress-free life, a life filled with purpose and drive!
Admit, take responsibility, accept, and change your flaws. Look deep in the mirror and decide that today in the day you will make the change for a happy healthier life!
