Sorry for the short hiatus. Thursday was just a crazy day mentally for me and I decided to not blog mainly because I don’t remember too much of the day again, I honestly don’t remember why I didn’t blog. Friday night, Patrick and I went up to Cleveland for a comedy show and went to dinner and shopping. It was nice to have a little date night. This evening we went to dinners at the house of some friends. Tomorrow is okay to be a day of being at home filing papers and doing laundry.
Tonight, I want to talk about never losing hope about a dream. There are many times in our lives that we get so down about things such as a hitting a plateau in your weight loss or hitting a plateau in whatever challenges you face. When you hit that plateau and you can’t get off of it, it feels like the end of the world. I am currently at another plateau with my weight. For about a week I felt like I was at the end of losing anymore weight and that I am going to remain there forever. After speaking with my counselor and doing a little meditation. I realized that the only way that this journey would be over is if I give up and lose hope. I know that if I want more weight to come off, I have to live my dream like it’s going to definitely going to happen. My dream is no longer an option, it’s mandatory. Success will come to be, I just need to be patient and continue to move in a forward direction.
Society in general like to live life in the fast lane, myself included, although I am trying to move away from that mindset. We want instant gratification with everything that happens in our lives. Especially with weight loss. But you have to remember that slow and steady wins the race. Work slowly and diligently towards your dreams, they will come true.
This post is dedicated to a good friend, don’t lose hope and don’t take your eye of the prize.
