Are you as addicted to Pinterest as I am?! I absolutely love going on there to dream, to be inspired, to learn, and to grow. And, okay, to waste a ton of time. I find so many interesting ideas from Pinterest everyday, and I just wanted to share some of it with my readers on a regular basis. Hence Pinterest Perspectives.
“We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness.” ~Unknown
When I saw this photo on Pinterest, I knew I had to write a post about it. It’s absolutely gorgeous, yet I find it so illuminating. To me, this photograph epitomizes my weight loss journey. My path has been long and incredibly daunting, but now, finally, I’m seeing the dawn of a new day.
The sunrise, my new life after VSG surgery, is still in the distance, but as the path symbolizes, it’s getting closer mile by mile, day by day. I know I still have a way to go to reach my mini goal, but I’m also confident that it’s just a matter of time.
These past six weeks, seeing so much success while following Jenny Craig, have been amazing for me. I’ve had a string of successes that show me that I CAN do it. I do have the willpower within me, I just had to find the right path to follow to tap into it again.
Just like the serenity that is evoked in the photo, I have a calmness about myself lately. I’m no longer anxious about how I can reach my goal, but instead I carry myself with the assurance that I will. It’s only a matter of time.
I’m grateful to have this clarity, because it carries me through the times of temptation to skip a workout or indulge in a poor food choice. Knowing with all of my heart that my path ends with the sunset comforts and empowers me.
I can’t wait to see what lies beyond the sunrise!
“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake… by an infinite expectation of the dawn.” ~Henry David Thoreau
