I’m so glad I saw this quote today. (for the life of me I can’t remember where. I just copied and pasted when it caught my attention.) I don’t know who said it. A quick google search reveals many variations and no authors. Regardless, it grabbed me…
Live the life you want to live. Be the person you want to remember. Make decisions. Make mistakes. If you fall, at least you tried.
It’s fitting for me at the moment. Confident and decisive are two things I’m getting more and more comfortable with but it wasn’t always that way.
Not too long ago I wasn’t living the live I wanted to live. I was forgettable. Indecisive. And afraid to make mistakes.
Interesting enough, confidence didn’t come with the weight loss. Weight loss came with the confidence.
I used to think “dieting” would get me thin and thin would get me the life I wanted. I focused on what I COULDN’T eat, what I COULDN’T wear, what I COULDN’T do UNTIL “thin” happened.
Funny thing… all I needed to do was start. No more waiting. No more wishing I was thin. I just needed to live my damn life. The life I wanted, not the one I thought I was stuck with because I was fat.
It’s amazing how opposite my thinking was.
