“Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others have no choice but to believe in you.” -Cynthia Kersey
Not settling requires patience and that is something I have been working on for the past year. I want what I want and I want it now. Is it generational? Maybe. Do I deserve to have what I want? Good golly I hope so because this whole waiting thing is for the birds. Not settling also requires persistence, goals and believing in yourself.
I have learned over the years that rushing things or pushing people to be where they aren’t ready to be is not what the universe intended. So I’ll wait. I’ll wait for my body to look like I want it too. I’ll wait for the right partner in my life. I’ll wait for my son to finally get that if he’ll just use his manners, he will get what he asks for. I’ll wait for my stomach to be full after eating the appropriate serving size.
Until then I’ll continue to workout and remind him to use his manners and meditate and learn from those around me and listen to my intuition. And I’ll take smaller bites and servings and savor each taste and take a break to ensure that I’m full before I make the mistake and gorge myself. A lesson that will most certainly come in handy tomorrow. 🙂
I’m thankful for the freedom to have this blog to use as therapy and as an accountability partner. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
P.S. I will be in the gym in preparation for the casserole-a-thon tomorrow and I hope to see you there!
