Patience Grasshopper

Tuesday, May 04, 2021

I had a good week last week with hitting the small goals I set for myself and getting the perspective adjustment that I desperately need. Now I need to keep repeating to myself, 'Patience Grasshopper you are still taking big boulders and making little pebbles'.

Looking back in things that has always been an issue with me. No patience, for example, I do well one week with drinking 16 oz. of water so my mind goes to next week all I should drink is water. Then I fail because I don't drink just water and get down on myself and spiral down the hole deeper than I was before I set the small goal. I need to be happy with this weeks goal of 24 oz. of water.

Same goes with working out. Patience Grasshopper!

    Slow and steady progress! Missing a day or two isn’t the end of your journey... I’ve been having a lot of success giving myself a break now and then (I used to be super-critical of my “slack” days, but now I realize I need them, too)

    Awright!

    Make today the greatest day of your life
    Until tomorrow!

    You can start late, look different, be uncertain, and still succeed.
