If Life Gives You Rocks....

There is a quote that goes something like this....
If life gives you rocks,
it is YOUR CHOICE
whether to
build a wall
or
build a bridge.
I have no idea who wrote it, but I thank my sister for sharing it with me.
I have come back to this quote several times this week. Life will always give you rocks of some sort, and it is your choice what you are going to do with them. But I started thinking about how that applies to my weight loss journey.

When something comes up that upsets me, or changes my plans for the day, derails my exercise attempts, or knocks me off track, all ROCKS, what do I do with that? Do I allow them to become a wall, stop my progress, and stop my journey?
OR

Do I CHOOSE to build a bridge that will get me back on track and back on my journey?

    I've been reflecting on obstacles these days...we all have them...and we all think we're the only one who does...

  4. Darn good point. If something derails my goals for a particular day I automatically ditch it all and tell myself I will start again tomorrow...lol...even when it comes to taking my vitamins!
