This is just a clip from my Becoming my best self page.
Today’s post is on reflection-something I haven’t done for a while.
We get so caught up in all the minuscule bad parts of life that we forget to praise ourselves for all the big good parts that happen along the way.
I can’t believe a year has past since I made the vow to myself to become a better person inside and out.
It literally feels like yesterday: standing in front of that college dorm mirror,days after my 21st birthday, frowning at the person I saw before me.
I wasn’t always “chubby” or “fat”
I was actually a really skinny kid growing up. Tall and skinny until female hormones kicked in and changed my life.
Let’s not forget the stress college brings in your life, and trust me it is not all from school work.
Now looking back I realized that during that time in my life, I could have been wiser about the company I kept and the amount of negative energy I let invade my space.
💎You cannot help people who don’t want your help Sumire.💎
It doesn’t work that way.
💎You cant neglect yourself for the sake of other people Sumire.💎
You’re the only one that suffers.
💎You cant expect everyone to love you Sumire💎
Loving yourself is most important. (beside loving God of course!)
It took me a whole year for me to finally come to these realizations
I mean, we hear and read the same mantras everywhere on advertisements, social media, cups….
Well, everywhere but do we actually fully understand what they mean.
This years journey really helped me fully understand what are my fears that are holding me back from my goals and what old baggage I should let go.
It was really hard to finally Express my struggles that I had for so long, but when I did, I felt so free.
I began to believe in myself more and pick up the pieces of my life that I left behind.
When I step on the scale and saw that 205 melted into 180 I was at a loss for words.
A whole year has gone by and I was able not only to lose weight but to keep it off!
I am so happy😁
I am glad that I stuck it out so far
My journey has not ended, I still have more goals to reach.
Thanks to all that showed loving support in my journey!
💖I LUV YOU GUYS💖
