I challenge you to be better than you were yesterday,
I challenge you to be stronger than those who are willing you to fail,
I challenge you to forget about the past and focus on the present,
I challenge you to stop focusing on the stars and focus on the moon,
I challenge you to stop hating yourself and start loving the gift of life that you live,
I challenge you to enter on to this journey with me to be what every moment we wish it would be.
I am sure there are many of you out there who are feeling like i am right now, down in the dumps, bummed out my your own reflection. Well i can tell you now you are blessed; there a thousand people out there who are worse off than you and that are grateful for every single day. I put on this persona as if i am this remarkably strong being who doesn’t “care” when actually i care more than anyone i know. I have resent for those who don’t even try and win almost every time; who wake up and don’t avoid their reflection at every possible opportunity; but most of all i resent myself for letting me get like this.
I am internally grateful for the life i am blessed with, both socially and mentally. However i am not grateful for expanding my waistline and defining my stretch marks to a point where i hate myself beyond belief. It is not fair that such a simple activity such as the means to eat can have this effect on so many people. We are also the people that try the hardest, think daily about the food we consume and the activity we must part take in to feel as if we tried. The people who go about their daily lives looking flawless without the slightest second thought on calories of gym schedules. We all have that one friend who can eat whatever they want and still slide into a size 6. I don’t want to be that person, i just want to you and the rest of us who are the triers and the thinkers to be successful as we deserve to be.
It has taken me a long time to finally sit down and write this with the full and whole hearted determination of completing my goal, not only for me but for all the ones who want to see me fail. For every person that has nicked name me by the way I look or my eating habits, for the ones who think i can’t maintain a healthy lifestyle; just because they know they can’t.
I challenge you to enter on this journey with me, starting form this very moment. Where ever you are, put down that cookie, draw up a plan, throw out that junk and be healthy but most of all happy. Smile at those who want to see you cry. By challenging you I am challenging myself to maintain this for myself.
Heres a quote for your dreams –
“Some failure in life is inevitable, it is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well have not lived at all, in which case, you failed by default”
