My Dreams Are Real, My Doubts Are Not

 My dreams are real, my doubts are not.

I've been contemplating the above affirmation. This takes being real with yourself to really believe it, I want to be the girl who totally believes in all her dreams and shows all her doubts where they truly belong. The doubts aren't real, they are only the stories people have told me and at one time I believed them.

Those stories are not the truth, they were only what I held on to so that I wouldn't try and then fail. I no longer fear failure, that does not mean that I can't win because I plan never to give up no matter how many times I fail. I will succeed, I am strong, I am tenacious, I am a winner, I will reach my goals and desires.

My first goal is my weight, I want to lose 75 pounds in one year, I made this goal 2 weeks ago. I am down 5 pounds. So 70 pounds left to go in 50 weeks. Second goal is to incorporate exercise into my life, I'm going to start this morning with 15 minutes a day and within a month I want to be exercising 45 minutes or more per day. These two are totally attainable.

The third thing, I want blog daily. I have felt so inspired since mid February. I haven't missed very many days. I don't want to miss any more in the future. The fourth one is that I want to get my PCP completed in one year. I've started one of the courses, two more after this, all of this is very attainable.

I want to be loving and inspiring to all the people in my life, I want them to really know how special and wonderful they really are.

I started toward my second goal this morning, I walked to the mall this morning; it took 14 minutes, I only had to wait 4 minutes for my bus. I feel great even if I'm red faced and a bit sweaty, it'll get easier with time. This is going to help me attain my first goal, I'll post my weekly weight loss in my blog. I'm truly excited.

My third goal of posting daily is working out so far for the past 5 days. Now I want to have a certain time to post, I think it'll be at night after I settle Valentina in bed as I usually get my inspiration early in the morning on the way to work. Unfortunately I can't post from my blackberry or from my computer at work.

I want to thank everyone for the encouraging words, I truly appreciate them. They make me smile;). I hope everyone had an amazing day, I planned to and I did;).

  7. Stick to your goals! It makes you feel so good even if you just get closer without fulfilling that goal.

    1. Thank you Petro, I will fulfill this goal and I feel so amazing. I will never be really skinny, nor do I ever want to be, I like having curves and some softness about me, it makes me feel more womanly. Thank you for thinking good thoughts for me:)

  9. You truly inspire me. I have set a goal for my blog (i.e., to write regularly), but I have failed apparently. I love your determination.

    1. Rhodora, it isn't easy but because of this cleanse I am doing, it has brought all my emotions and feelings to the surface, I have nothing to hide them so blogging is my way of dealing with them. Thank you for telling me I inspire you, I am so happy I can do that for you :)

  10. Martha and Petro, I feel some doubts in your words. it's whether yes, or no. Launna is a yes. She's gonna make it until the end because she's not only talking,but acting. Good Job Launna, you will reach your goals and live enough to admire them if you want. I am sure you will be an achiever.
    Thank you for inspiring us in a good way.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
