Trying

Thanks to LA (Waking Up on the Wrong Side of 50). She pointed out that I am so much better than I was four years ago.

Next time, or tomorrow is always an option. Giving up just because you fail today doesn’t mean that tomorrow you will fail again.

Blessings.

Woman

I’ve hated this woman. I’ve not loved her at full capacity. I’ve fed her lies & told her she wasn’t good enough and have allowed others to tell her she wasn’t good enough. I’ve allowed her to be broken. I’ve allowed others to treat her disrespectfully.

I’ve allowed her to run through brick walls & battle for others who won’t even stand for her. I couldn’t stop individuals from abandoning her, yet I’ve seen her get up and stand to be a light to the world & love others despite all that. I have stood paralyzed by fear while she fought battles in her mind, heart and soul.

This woman has screwed up many times as a mom, or as a friend, because she doesn’t always say or do the “right things”. She has a smart mouth, and she has secrets. She has scars… because she has a history.

Some people love this woman, some like her, and some people don’t care for her at all.

She has done good in her life. She has done bad in her life. She goes days without makeup, or shaving her legs. She doesn’t get dressed up very often. She is random and sometimes silly. She will not pretend to be someone she is not. She is who she is.

Every mistake, failure, trial, disappointment, success, joy, and achievement has made her the woman she is today.

You can love her or not. But if she loves you, she will do it with her whole heart, and she will make no apologies for the way she is.

This Woman is a WARRIOR. She’s not perfect but she has a lot of WORTH! She’s UNSTOPPABLE. Gracefully broken but beautifully standing. She is loved. She is life. She is transformation. She is Grace. She is BRAVE!

She is a child of God!

Ladies, I dare you to put this on your status, with a picture of yourself, If you’re proud to be who you are. Copied from social media…and to be honest…I don’t remember where.

Blessings.

You

Proud of myself?  Nope…frustrated.  Frustrated that I have regain, and it took having pictures to show me what I look like again.  Frustrated that I have allowed myself to not follow the plan, and the tool that I fought hard to have help me.DSC_0244June 2015–Washington DC.JACI have to be proud that I am no longer there – right?img_0308February 2019 – Disney Princess 5k —I am SO VERY PROUD of myself for this.  Why can’t I just be happy with myself?  It is a daily struggle – constant.  David asked if I was okay with my weight, and I told him “yes.”  But I am not okay with it.  I feel so much better than what I did five years ago.  Can’t that be enough?

Thankful.  Frustrated.  Proud.  Enough.

Blessings.
