I made a poster last night while watching Extreme Weight Loss. I have not been able to move a marble showing I have lost weight in a long time (many reasons for this), but I am still pressing onward, getting strong, and getting fit...physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. I may not always see it on the scale, but I can see it in pictures, in my behavior, in my choices, and this journey to transform is about total transformation...not just the scale.
So, I wanted to revisit my why and find inspiration to keep moving forward. Instead of specific goals, I went with words. Words that mean something on my journey. I have lots of goals, but its some of these words and phrases that will help me get there and are my why. The words we say, read, think, and believe are powerful. They can uplift or tear down.
"The tongue can bring death or life;..." Proverbs 18:21
I could have put so many more words and phrases on here, but this is what I went with:
I can't pick out any one word or phrase on here that are my favorites, but as I write there are 2 that stand out today.
1. Own It.
I have to own the good, the bad, and the ugly. No one forces me to eat. No one forces me to workout. No one forces me to spend time or not with Jesus. I have to own my journey, my choices, my actions, my behaviors.
2. Power Up.
I have to power up with food choices and working out, but more importantly I have to power up with Jesus. He is the power behind my journey, my parenting, my marriage, my life.
What inspires you? What is your why?
Whatever you are discouraged by keep chasing. Keep pressing onward. Own it and power up!
Chase What Matters. All things through Christ.
