Believe in yourself...You're worth it!
Friday, June 03, 2016
Day after day, week after week I would wait for someone to believe in me and most days I would be let down. I have realized this week that I cannot sit around and wait for others to believe in me. I have to believe in myself enough to make a difference. If I don't believe in me then I'm falling short. I'm not saying that it's not good to have others believing in us and being there as our personal motivators; it's great to have them in the sidelines cheering us on. What I'm saying is we (I) can't wait on others before I make changes in me for the future.
This week I started jogging. I began on Monday and here we are on Friday. I have gone from a 17:17 mile (Monday) to a 14:32 mile (Friday)! I feel great after jogging in the morning. Before I began this week, I complained that I didn't have a workout partner. I have a step-daughter who is almost 20. "Why can't she get up in the mornings and come outside and exercise with me?", I would ask myself. My husband would say it's because you have to want to change before you begin to change. Well...yesterday she woke up, came outside, and walk/jogged with me! Then, again today!! And guess what? She said it felt great to jog! I may just have a jogging partner.
I must continue to remind myself that I have to make the changes in myself and not expect others to be there to walk this journey beside me. I can wish for and hope that I will have them, but in the end, I am only responsible for me and my health. I want to be healthy for my kids and husband for many years and the only way I can do that is GET MOVING!!
Remember, you are worth it! BELIEVE in YOURSELF! Get up and Get moving!!
