Does the white denim rule apply to pink shirts after Labor Day? This shirt goes back to 2006 or so, and I probably haven't worn it since 2012. It's one of those clothing items that I've stared at year after year wondering if I could ever wear it again.
I recently saw a new weight loss high of 55.6lbs since I started my journey back on May 13th. I feel so humbled by all of the direct messages, phone calls, supermarket encounters, and social media posts offering praise, love, and support.
By making my growth journey public, I realized how important it is to share it with others. Of course, my life has darkness that my posts don't depict. Don't we all? Let's all agree, however, that despite our personal struggles, positive inspiration, like bathing, is something we all need often.
I have so much empathy for all human beings. We all have our own "stuff." The pain caused by this "stuff" is different for each of us. Keep this in mind when you wake up tomorrow, and do your best to treat others with kindness. Their stuff might be as painful as yours or worse. Remember this each day going forward.
My weight loss journey rides alongside an emotional journey that is critical to making myself ageless. I was so sick of feeling the way I did, both inside and out. "Sick and tired of being sick and tired," sums it up. With my daughters ending their high school years, and me reaching a significant milestone in life, I was afraid that my next 50 years would be much of the same: overweight, stressed out, unhappy, uninspired. Those fears are gone.
Dig deep! All of us can summon the inner strength to get out of the current situation we find ourselves struggling with. Life throws a lot of wrenches in our long-term plans. While planning for the long-term is essential, we should never ignore the fact that longevity isn't a gift granted to all of us.
Treat each day as a precious gift. We should prioritize getting more "life" out of our years daily. Take nothing for granted, especially your physical and mental health. Start your own personal growth journey today and you will truly begin to live life to the fullest.
