I have come to realize that a lot of life is about perspective. There are so many different ways to look at things, but when we're in the midst of "junk" in our lives, it's hard to see that silver lining in those clouds.
Here are some examples:
One of the things we used to do as kids is to go puddle stomping in the rain. It was so much fun!! I really need to go do that when it warms up some. It's such an invigorating feeling. If you never tried it, you should!!
Look at your problems from a different angle. If you're having a hard time with that, ask a trusted friend to help you. Sometimes people outside of the circumstances can see things a little more clearly & can give you some sound advice or a different perspective.
The times I've grown & matured the most in my faith & as a person are the times I've been through something really, really hard. As much as we hate going through the trials of life, those times are the best for making you better.
Even though life can be hard, it is still amazing.
Today: Find your amazing, or maybe do a little puddle stomping. No matter where you are in life, keep going because the view is beautiful at the top.
Blessings to you!!

Weight loss isn't easy, most of the time. There are weeks when you're on a roll & the weight is melting off & you're feeling good. Other weeks, you have to push yourself to eat one more freggie, stay away from Mark's candy dish &/or you have to push yourself a little to get in that exercise. Those rough weeks, it does no good to sit in the corner & have a pity party. You just have to cowboy up!!!
Unfortunately, you have to earn your new self -- it's not handed to you on a silver platter. I think that's because we need to learn some things about ourselves along the way. We need to encounter some storms so that we can grow stronger.
But we're tough, right? We can do this!!!
Sooooo, today: Cry in the truck, or cowboy up!
Blessings to you!!
