New Me!

Creating The Life I Want!

I'm taking charge of my well being. I have hit the infamous plateau since 2010, need to shake it up and loose it now and for ever, lol.
Lately I look in the mirror and I don't like what I see. After loosing 50 pounds and having it creeping up on me again is very disappointing. I'm going down that same road I was before I started Spark People in 2009. My energy is low and I don't feel good in my clothes. I will not let it happen again.

Climb The Mountain

I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."Author unknown

I believe that God brings certain people into our lives for a reason.
Sometimes, it's to help us see something new and wonderful.
Sometimes, it's to encourage us and to strengthen our faith.
And sometimes, it's just to remind us that we are never truly alone.

Whatever purpose God had in bringing us together,
I'm just grateful that He did....

You've been a real source of understanding and happiness in my life and it means more to me than I can ever say to have the gift of your friendship and caring.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. My Callie crossed over Rainbow bridge a yr ago October and left me heartbroken. I had her for 15 yrs and this is what she would have written, if she could. She would not want her place to go by one day without wishing another to fill that place. She would want another to know that love that I can give. I adopted 2 Cattle dogs and they helped me to heal and have given me 10 fold in love and devotion. I know you can't replace one pet with another, but isn't that what they would want if they could only talk? To pass on their space to another less fortunate soul? One who has never known love. Pass on the love that she taught me to give. emoticon emoticon
