It's time to celebrate! 100 days ago, I started this journey. It's one I've taken many times before. I'd get lost along the way. Allow negative thinking to sabotage my progress.
Oh, there's been plenty of doubt and Negative Nelly thoughts this time. On this journey, though, I've decided to look at them a different way. I'm learning they will happen and I have to ways I can look at them on my goal path.
I can let the fear and the frustration end the journey. Forget it. Why bother? Turn around and just go back where you were! It's safe there. Back to where you don't have to think.
About your insecurities.
About your failures.
About taking risks.
I could look at the doubt and Negative Nelly thoughts like this:
I'm going to face these feelings along the way. Detours pop up all the time when we're on the road. Do we see the sign and turn around to go home? No! We follow the detour.
Yeah, the way can be longer and annoying as hell. Ultimately, though, we reach our destination, just as we planned.
Over these past 100 days, I've learned that I do have so much more control in getting to my destination. I may take the long way around, but I will make it to where I want to be. Roadblocks will fall in my path, but the journey doesn't end with them. I'll just find a new way to get there!
100 days ago, I didn't even know where I'd be on my weight loss journey—or if I'd even still be on it! I couldn't think of October 15! Now, I can look back and see this time as the foundation of something bigger and better.
100 days from now will be January 23, 2018. And, I'm looking forward to it!
