Thoughtful Thursday

Isn't it funny when you have a light bulb moment and you're like "well duh--I saw that coming but chose to look the other way!"

Isn't it funny when you realize that the boat you're sailing in, the one you are busy rowing towards the pretty shore, stops moving and starts sinking. It's filled with water because you chose to look the other way when you first noticed a hole develop.

Isn't it funny how when you let yourself feel comfortable with the progress you've made you realize that you've become TOO comfortable and that your progress is fading.

No, it isn't funny at all is it. It's a bit disheartening and you feel as if it's all for naught. But it ISN"T for naught, it's for something. IT'S FOR YOU!!! Just because you have a bad day or you have a bad week, or maybe you've had a bad month-you're journey is not for naught. IT'S FOR YOU. NO ONE ELSE. GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK FRICKIN NOGGIN. Period. end of that discussion.

So what do you do to get out of this FUNK. Do you think about it? Do you go to the store and buy supplies? Do you pull your pen and paper out and start a list? Do you get your list done and say "ah yes this will work; we start tomorrow!" ***NEWS FLASH*** There is NO TOMORROW. NO FRICKIN TOMORROW!!! And why wait when you CAN start today. March your rear end in to that batheroom, look at yourself in the mirror, raise your hand, point your finger to the mirror and shout (yes shout) MY CHANGE STARTS TODAY. RIGHT THIS MINUTE. I DESERVE THE BEST! FORGET ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU THINK IS WRONG AND FOCUS ON WHAT'S RIGHT WITH YOU! 

It's not funny anymore and truthfully it never was. The sharades are over, the gig is up. One step in front of the other, no matter how small, will get you to your destination. The journey to your destination may not be short but that's ok...the longer the journey the more fun you'll have. All the things you'll learn about yourself; all the things you'll learn about others...such a fun and wonderful journey if you'll only STOP LOOKING THE OTHER WAY!!!


  1. I am trying to put into my mentality the value of what I am about to eat opposed to my weight loss goal. It was actually brought to my attention by Princess Dieter in one of her posts. "What is it worth"? Although having to cook country fried pork steaks and make the gravy it worth my love for the stuff or my want to lose weight.
    I have a long way to go yet. I need to ask my self that question regularly.

  2. That fading progress thing...I see it all the time in the mirror. bleh. On the same lines as Bluezy, I used to tell myself that I'd rather be unhappy at meal times than every time I looked in the mirror. I'm not good on self-sacrifice, though, so I do better with moderation and lots of exercise. Thank goodness summer is's always the hardest time for me to be in shape. Go figure.

    You sound so strong here. I know you're going to get where you want to go.

  3. Could not agree more - relentless forward motion
