Don’t get me wrong, a night of Netflix binge watching can be exactly what one needs after a long week. I interpret this as time is precious. We all get the same 24 hours in a day and what you do with it is up to you. If you spend two hours watching TV then that is two hours you aren’t going to get back. It is so easy to get caught up in TV and I’ll even add in social media. Potentially comparing our lives to those on the screen, Instagram and/or Facebook. Sometimes it is not real life. They don’t tell you the struggles it took to get to where they are today or the struggle they are currently in.
I was taught at a young age to always be thankful for what I have, even when things don’t seem to be going right. Therefore it takes a lot for me to admit when I am struggling. Honestly, I have a roof over my head, food to eat, friends and family who love me and would drop things in a second to help me, what else could a gal want? I push the envelope everyday to be better and not every day is a good day. I have struggles just like anyone else. Most of the time I am confident in my decisions but there are times I second guess myself. I have had the negative body image, it is much better now but there are times I look on social media and want to be like someone else. Then I remind myself that God made me exactly the way I am for a reason.
Every year I create a list of goals. Some big, like getting on stage at a body building competition, some small, like making more time for my family. I then go through what it takes to be successful in each of the goal I created and I back myself into them. I allow for things to go off course. I allow for a weekend here and there of doing nothing then get back at each one of my goals after I take that time.
Here is a picture of my goals dated December 2016… I accomplished a bunch of them, some I had to postpone and some I had to readjust. In the past I have been embarrassed to show this for fear of embarrassment from the goals I did not achieve and the ones I readjusted. Even as I write this I am wavering about sharing but in effort to show all of me, here it is. It keeps me on track, pushing in a positive direction and seeing how far I’ve come over the years.
