You all know that I’ve had issues in the past with not wanting to do something until I could commit fully to it (my all or nothing personality-abstainer, not moderator).
Recently I listened to a woman explain in quite simple terms something that really resonated with me. She spoke on the fact that she’d struggled with certain issues her whole life & thought she needed to completely overcome them before she could effectively help others. She realized finally, that as long as she was aware & consistently trying to improve, she could inspire others.
Here is my takeaway:
–I have demons in my life. They happen to all be food related. I may NEVER fully overcome these struggles and addictions and tendencies I have in regards to these demons.
if I am aware. If I don’t let my guard down. If I constantly work on creating new habits to help replace & outweigh the old, I can make progress toward beating those demons. I can inspire and encourage others. As long as I’m taking steps forward-even small ones-I’m moving in the right direction.
