Hey guys, I have most everyone's weight..as it's late I won't post it tonight because it involves math.
I hate math.
I will post tomorrow....most everyone lost weight...not as much but some.
A few gained.
I noticed a common theme in the last answer and it was one that I found to be true for me as well..
it was this...
We all think we are lacking in some way.
Even though it isn't true.
We compare ourselves to others.
I think as a whole we are a very honest bunch of people..
and we view others in a more charitable light than we do ourselves.
I know I did.
I used to think everyone else had it all together and that I was the only one wallowing around,
doing it wrong.
I have found over the last three years, that when you open up to others..
some of the seemingly strongest people are just really, really good at hiding their hurts.
They have a veneer that says "I have it all together.'
but if you listen to them...after a while you figure out they have a mask on.
The theme I keep pounding..
because I know it to be true, is this:
At any moment you can take hold of your life..
any part of it
and change it.
You may have to set things down.
Put things aside.
Hurt someone's feelings.
let things go.
Dig up old hurts and put them to rest.
Stop using food as a substitute for living..
Tell someone no.
Tell someone yes.
But you can change whatever it is you need to change.
You can make your life what you want.
It really is up to you.
And if yesterday you let yourself down..
Then today you can start again.
And don't let yourself down..not today and not tomorrow.
You are enough.
You are worth the effort.
God gave you your mind, your body and this desire to be whole and healthy.
And you are capable.
IT isn't depriving yourself to be healthy.
It is setting yourself free to be the person you want to be.
Here's a quote I like:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
It's by marianne williamson...I dont agree with all that she writes...but I agree with this.
