This Journey Is Incredible...
Saturday, September 04, 2010
What a beautiful Saturday morning in September, the sun is shining and the air is crisp. This journey I've been on everyday for almost a year now is truly incredible. Somedays I certainly get bogged down and discouraged, but let me tell you...there have been some major changes inside of me.
I'm in a transition period right, just starting to feel settled in and comfortable working 2 full time jobs...this past week, I actually really enjoyed it and had some fun. I've always liked working hard and the feeling that comes from putting in the effort and being able to appreciate and enjoy the results.
Just like work, financial/business stuff....my weight loss efforts have really been incredible compared to how it was before last year. I'm so much more mindful of what I eat and when, exercising, but the biggest gift that has grown inside of me in regards to my weight, my body and my health is that I feel like I'm steering this journey and I'm not just a passenger, the hope I have today is real and it is balanced with a genuine acceptance of myself exactly as I am....and that I like who I am, fat and all. Yes, I'm committed to working at losing weight and getting healthier and experiencing freedoms that have been foreign to me, but I dig who I am as a person, as partner with Cindy, as a son, as a brother, a friend, a business owner and now as an employee. I'm Alright... and on the days that get dark, I have the support and love from my inner circle to help me get a true perspective and move through whatever emotional congestion I have and start making things happen again.
It always feels better to be climbing out of a hole then to be sliding into one!
What you think upon grows, either way...positive or negative...it's gonna grow.
Have a super smooth holiday weekend, Ryan
