Posts Tagged ‘sunrise’

This morning I was up early – at 5am – despite going to bed at midnight Hawaii time (3am SJ time!). Since I was up, I wanted to be sure to enjoy the amazing sunrise from the back porch.

I took these shots while sipping coffee.  Does it really get any better?
Happy Sunday!

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.

It’s been awhile since I posted some of the inspiring pins I’ve found on Pinterest, so I figured today was as good a day as any to share some of the things that have kept my head in the game, lately.

“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
