"This one's for you and me
living out our dreams
we're all right where we should be...."
We are ALL right where we should be...right in this journey where we should be. I should have this difficulty, opposition, negativity that I'm facing. It is right where I should be 'cause you know what? It's shaping me into the person God wants me to be. Period.
"You and I know what it's like
to be kicked down
forced to fight.
But tonight we're alright
so hold up your light
let it shine!"
This "fight" is shaping, molding me...I'm not the same person as I was 2 months ago. Not only have I seen weight loss, but the personal change has permeated every aspect of my life. Some people in my life don't like the "new" me because it's thrown them out of their comfort zone. I was an overweight stay-at-home mom, O.K., still overweight, but working on it. Now I have a nutrition plan, exercise plan, that I developed and am implementing quite successfully. I've inherited a business that's requiring me to stretch outside of my comfort zone. My life is changing quickly...I can feel it. I'm dealing with a lot of negativity in my life from others...I've been "kicked down, forced to fight." But I'm letting the positive shine, by showing discipline in sticking with my plan, by the way I'm conducting business in my corporation, and in the way I'm treating family and friends. I've enjoyed myself more as well, relaxed a bit, had fun.
How has your life changed since starting a weight loss journey? Did you lose friends? Change jobs? I'd love to hear.
Thanks for reading, y'all. Have a great Thursday.
