This morning I put on a baggy sweater, not because I was cold, but because I didn't like the way my top fit.
For the past week I have dreaded getting dressed to go anywhere. My jeans don't fit and all my summer tops are too tight. I'll admit- it's been really hard and I've cried a couple of times.
But I'm letting it go and starting over.
"No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow your progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn't trying."
I told my husband the other day that I felt like I've wasted the last 6 months of my life being sick and trying to get better- but I take that back. It wasn't wasted- it was a time for learning and growth. I've had set backs and it's been rough. I've been on and off medication that has made me gain weight, I've struggled with pain and symptoms I've never dealt with. It's been a whole new ball game for me.
But I'm moving forward.
"What defines us is how well we rise after falling."
I didn't meet all my goals for the first half of the year, and I am behind on the ones I set for the second half. But that doesn't define me. What defines me is my determination to move forward and NEVER GIVE UP!
I am worth it. My family is worth it. My goals and dreams are worth it!
If YOU have ever been in a situation like mine, you know what I am saying. It's hard to pick yourself up and keep going, but oh my friend, it is so worth it!
I'm here for you! Let's do this together. Let's pick ourselves up and move forward for ourselves, our families, and for our dreams!
