Today you woke up. You opened your eyes, you got out of bed.
Not everyone gets that chance.
But we did. Today we got the chance to do whatever we can do make it the day we want. Now, today...we might not get exactly what we want, we may not reach our ultimate goal...
But we get the chance to try.
If YESTERDAY you ate too much, fought too much, were moody, sad, angry, tired, at the end of your rope...
Today is a new day. Take a deep breath. Try and replace the negative thoughts that flood your mind with positive ones. It can be a time consuming process...but try it.
Just for today.
And then maybe tomorrow will be a little easier...a little better...a little healthier.
As it relates to my lapband/weight loss journey...I was never perfect. I gained some weeks, I went coo coo crazy some weeks. I was never consistently the perfect bandster. I don't know if that even exists. When it comes to my human journey...well hell...I fuck that up all time. :) I can be so emotional (when you wear your heart on yourself, it can get bruised pretty easy). Sometimes I overreact, sometimes I think the sky is falling...
But I think that all we can do is hope that we learn a little, grow a little, and pick ourselves up...
I believe in happiness. I believe in love. I believe in the strength of the human soul. I believe in the healing powers of compassion, laughter, and diet sunkist (okay...that last one may be a stretch).
And today I believe in me.
