I must confess, the past week and a half have been incredibly difficult for me. At times I literally lost control, and I failed to journal most of last week. As I've shared before, journaling is essential for me.
I have no trouble putting my finger on the problem. I have been feeling stressed and then I came down with a nasty cold. Those are two huge triggers for me. My self-control went right down the drain and I ate just about everything I could put my hands on. (I'm not kidding!!)
Confession made, I'm happy to report that I am back on track this week. I have regained my self-control and determination. I refuse to turn back. This journey isn't easy; I never thought it would be. Nothing worth doing is ever easy...right?
The reason I share this detour in my journey (I refuse to call it a failure. Failure is falling down and not getting back up.) is to let you know that I'm human. I make mistakes and it's okay.
I want to encourage anyone who is traveling this road with me to be real. Don't beat yourself up when you stumble. Get up, dust yourself off and keep moving. We can do this! Take it one day at a time, one foot in front of the other.
I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.
