Day 25 – Take “Can’t” Out of Your Vocabulary!
That “I Can’t” story you tell yourself in your head is just a bunch of BS! Here is just a chapter from mine~
Five years ago tonight, I was getting ready to go to my favorite local festival but I really did not want to go. It is my very favorite weekend of the year, because I get to basically see EVERYONE I know all in one place! I am from a fairly small town, but most everyone at least stops by the KofC BBQ for a little bit.
But that year, I had reached my all time high in my weight at 275#. I felt horrible, and I was very self conscious about the way I looked. I was so unhealthy, that I had an appointment set up for 2 weeks later to have some tests run to see what was causing all the pain and other issues I was having. I KNEW the first thing that doctor was going to say was that I was too fat. Well…he used the term MORBIDLY OBESE! I was CRUSHED and felt like a TOTAL LOSER! On top of that, I drank like a fish and smoked like a chimney, and was still taking handfuls of RX painkillers for my back just to make it through the work day sitting at my desk!
But I went to that gathering, got DRUNK to numb out my “sad” feelings, and had a blast! But the next day, nothing had changed. I STILL felt like garbage, and I continued to treat myself like garbage. I never thought at that time that I could REALLY change. That I could even possibly do all the things I can do today. But I knew SOMETHING had to change. I could barely walk a few blocks at a time, and I was a chain smoking drunk! How was I ever going to change enough to actually be “healthy”.
But I DID! And I did it ONE STEP AT A TIME!!!
ALWAYS give yourself the benefit of the doubt! You are capable of SO MUCH MORE than you will ever give yourself credit for! Change your BS “I Can’t” story into a “I am currently working on becoming AWESOME!”
Your story it TOTALLY up to YOU! It is up to you to make the right decisions and choices to get you there, and I hope to be able to help you!
MAKE today GREAT and full of I CAN’s!!!
Head UP! Shoulders BACK! Smile ON! Now get out there and take on the world!!!
