Put One Foot In Front of the Other

(from Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

I don’t know what to think. I’ve gotten so used to failure and disappointment when it comes to making good choices about my eating and exercise habits that I’m scared. Scared because it’s all coming together so seemingly easily. And I remember when it used to be easy but then one day it wasn’t any more. So I don’t want to relax and enjoy the feeling because if I stop being scared maybe it will all evaporate and I’ll be back where I started, disappointed and sad. And hopeless.

But I have hope now – I’m letting myself feel just the faintest glimmer of hope again – and that is everything.

  • I’m still scared, but that emotion has morphed into cautious, kind of like always being aware of your surroundings when out in public. I think of it now as “clear and present danger”……remember – One Day at a Time 🙂

      I like that – cautious sounds so much better than “terrified for my life”. Thanks for sharing and for the visit!
