StilL Learning to Celebrate the Little Things
Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Back in March I posted a blog entry about celebrating the small victories along the way. I was shocked and surprised at the response I got to that blog, It wasn't long, it wasn't deep and it definitely didn't seem all that entertaining. But what I realized is that as simple as that blog was it is something we ALL struggle with. I know that at times my inability to celebrate a half a pound lost, running that extra half mile before stopping, and as that blog was about getting boots zipped up that I hadn't in a long LONG time are the things that send me flying off the wagon. We NEED to celebrate because none of it is insignificant. It may seem small in the moment but all those little victories add up over time to become the BIG victory in the end of reaching our goals. We need those little victories to continue pushing and propelling us toward the finish line. So CELEBRATE!!!!
I am most definitely saying all this not only for you guys but as a reminder to myself. The last few months have been a real struggle for me and I am not really sure why. I go through phases where I feel great, I am eating good and working out hard. But then I stop celebrating the little things and get overwhelmed by the big picture and I fall flat on my face. And instead of picking myself up right away, brushing myself off and keeping on moving forward I allow myself to lay there feeling sorry for myself much longer than I should. That HAS to stop. I can't be the only one who does this can I?
All that being said, I am feeling good about things these last few days. I miss all you wonderful people on here who have been such a huge part of the things I have accomplished. Maybe THIS TIME is the time I actually push through all the walls and finish what I have started.
