As soon as I saw Squeak’s awesome page So Here’s The Story, I knew what I was going to scrap. I loved how she fit so much journaling into her page, so I was inspired to tell this story. Thanks for the inspiration, Shirley! Smile

Thank for looking! Smile

Journaling: I’m a woman on a mission, this much I know. I’m not going to sigh, roll my eyes and say “here we go again.” The past is the past. What I might once have seen as failed attempts are forgotten. In fact, they weren’t failed attempts. It was all part of my journey. I will complete it this time. I will not only complete it, but I’m gonna smash it. I won’t set myself up for failure. I won’t listen to excuses. The negative, nagging voice in the back of my mind is banished. If it rears it’s ugly head again, I am going to slap it back into submission then tell it to drop and give me twenty. This is my time. This is about finding a new normal. This is about being as fit, healthy and happy as I can be. Because I deserve it. I know there will be hurdles and obstacles and this time I welcome them. Come and get me, I say. I need to face them, confront them and then learn to deal with them and move on. After all, that is the key. Move on. It’s time to let go of the baggage that’s been holding me back and get on with it. No more talking myself out of healthy choices, looking for short cuts and taking the easy way out. It’s time to make some permanent, healthy, positive changes in my life and keep moving forward. Stop thinking and just do it.
