Don't be discouraged

Good Morning~

I was reading through some of my favorite blogs last night, of people on a similar journey. My heart was aching as I read of their frustration. I understand completely, and I definitely have my days. I feel like I need to say...

Don't be discouraged!

You are stronger than any obstacle! The fact that I did this means that you can too! I am a normal person. I am not rich and famous. I don't have access to anything fancy. The only thing I found was my determination.

Don't be overwhelmed by your day. If the day feels too big to conquer - then only do this hour. And when you have been victorious over that hour, conquer the next hour.

Pray for strength. God wants us to take care of our bodies, and even more than that, He wants what we want. ASK FOR IT! CLAIM IT! This victory will be yours.

Here is a picture of Hope sticking her tongue out at our enemies. The cupcakes, candy bars, potato chips that taunt us. The tasks and obligations and laziness that tease us. Neener Neener Neener.... WE ARE STRONGER THAN THAT!

That's all...


  1. Hey you -- those cupcakes look delicious -- but that's beside the point. The real point is that I'm proud of you. I'm in awe of the person you're becoming, the willingness you have to share your heart, the authenticity and hope for more in your life.

    I can't help but think of Dory from Finding Nemo after this and your last two posts... "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming..."

    Love you,

  2. Well said and I know it takes awhile to get to this point. Stay strong and thank you so much for the words of encouragement.
