This has been one of the most interesting times in my life. Things aren’t bad. Things are really good actually. I’m just finally settling into who I am. I decided to go on a 30 day challenge of no sweets. I completed it successfully, with the exception of the couple of times I willingly chose to indulge. Honestly, it feels great to have actually accomplished something. It is rare for me to start something and actually finish it, but this was something that I knew I had to do. It got to the point where I was no longer doing it to kick my serious addiction to sweets, but I was doing it solely to prove to myself that I COULD. Now I know that I don’t have to eat sweets. Now I know that I can finish what I start as long as I’m dedicated, and never lose sight of my “why”. These are things that I needed to know. Day 1, I was literally in the fetal position going through withdrawals (when I say I had an addiction, I mean it). Today, I walked through the bakery of Tom Thumb, looked at the all the desserts I wasn’t going to eat, and kept it moving without breaking a sweat. It may seem like a small feat to some, but anyone who knows me knows that this is a big deal, and doggonit, I’m proud of myself!
Also, congratulations to all the recent graduates! This is just the beginning of a new chapter in your lives. Make it count. Be who you want to be. Be scared, it’s normal, but don’t let it stop you. I’m so proud of my friends. I’m so blessed to have wonderful people in my life, and I’m glad I got to celebrate with some of you this weekend.
