We don’t have to lose all of the weight today.
So don’t worry about the temptations of tomorrow and next week.
We don’t know what tomorrow will bring.
But we do have today.
And we only have to get through today.
That we can do.
This is what I’ve been telling myself lately and it’s helping. I used to know this and then I forgot. We must always remind ourselves of the important things. We must never stop telling ourselves what we need to hear. The world will always be full of the messages that tear us down. That tell us we can’t ever make it. That we will never overcome our obstacles. But in the middle of that, we must rise up and remind ourselves of the truth.
And the truth is this:
Today is here. Tomorrow is no guarantee.
So stop worrying about tomorrow. Deal with “right now”
And right now—we CAN do this. But if today is too much—-try 15 minutes. If not that, 30 seconds. But don’t give up. Don’t quit. Quitting won’t help. I know that because I’ve tried it. Besides, we don’t have to quit when it gets hard. We just have to move through the next 30 seconds. We have what it takes. It’s just buried too deep to feel. Buried under a gallon of ice cream and a box of Krispy Kreme Donuts— but it’s there.
The strength to do this—the courage to keep going—-IT IS THERE
Even if your faith is small, that is still enough for today.
Small faith is all you need to plant the seed that will grow into tomorrow’s victory.
SO JUST KEEP GOING
