My childhood friend Heidi S has been offering some great support for me as I try to stick to my goal of loosing 40 lbs. There are a couple of sayings that she has written in my comments section that are exactly what I need to hear at this time! The first one she said that really stuck in my head is "You can do this". It is so true- all I have to do is make up my mind to do something and I can usually find a way. It doesn't happen easily or all at once. Sometimes it is hard and takes a while to accomplish. This brings me to the next saying that she wrote "You can do hard things". It's very interesting that she wrote this because I was reminded of this very saying on Saturday. I was mowing the lawn and thinking about my blog and my goals. I remembered that my Aunt Suzie once told me a story about her son and how she would tell him that he could do hard things. She then told me that I could too. I really took that saying to heart and made it through some rough times that I was going through. Now, today I checked the comment section and Heidi was inspired to tell it to me. It has come full circle and now I feel the need to make these sayings my personal mottos. So, I will put them on the side of my blog to help myself remember them and whenever any of you visit- you can think about them as well! Thanks Heidi!
