The only thing that matters now is my mission, nothing will stand in my way anymore.
I haven't had writers block, I have had this blog block, I have been writing in my other blog, my personal one, every night. That is because I can say whatever I want, I don't have to gauge how someone might take it. I feel like I have been skating on thin ice when I write here, I wonder if I might say something wrong... As well, after I wrote my last entry about deserving even better, it left me pondering a lot of things from that post. My self esteem used to be wrapped up in if someone loved me or not.
That isn't the way that it is any longer, my self esteem comes from within now ... right where it always should have come from. I feel though that my lack of self esteem in the past may have hurt me in a greater way... I feel like since I used to be needy that people that saw me that way are unable to see the change in me now. I understand why people would have a hard time believing that I have changed, I have tried many other times, only to fail... but this time, something different happened. I really got it, inside me, I got that I deserved to do this for me, I was worth all the effort.
I have been thinking about that a lot because since I have lost my bus pass, I have not been putting in as much effort .... I now make sure that I take two walks per day and I put in the effort to get my heart rate up. I sometimes try to talk myself out of it but I get myself out, this is important, I need to stay active so that when I get my bus pass pack next week, I will be ready for the gym. Every time I think of making an excuse not to go, I remember that girl from a short six months ago who had no idea what she was capable of or how strong she was. I never want to lose that feeling
I was focused on all the wrong things, I was not focused on me. Since I neglected myself, everything around me was neglected. When I took my life back this summer, I realized that taking care of me, helped me to be able to take better care of other things around me. It was a good lesson, one that I plan to remember... the Summer of 2013 was the year I found my self confidence, the Fall brought a challenge I was sure I would fail, sometimes I wonder if I still won't fail but I keep moving forward and making new goals. Sometimes that is all I can do with the challenges I have been handed, some day it might all make sense.
Until then, I have to keep moving forward, even if I don't always feel like it... Sometimes it is really hard... sometimes I wonder if it is worth it? Was what I lost, worth what I gained?
