It's The Climb and it's scary

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Listening to The Climb by Miley Cyrus has me in a emotional state right now because this song is so inspirational and true and the message is such an important one for me to understand and try to apply to every aspect of my life. I feel like I'm the person that wants everything to be easy and if its not I give up on it. Thats how I am in weight loss, school, everything. I feel that voice not only in my head but even sometimes from others saying you'll never accomplish it or you'll never make it and I decide to listen to it everytime. I don't want to do that anymore I want to keep pushing I want to see something through and accomplish goals and work my butt off to do it. Sometimes I have to lose and I'm learning that too but for every loss I want to feel like I gave it my all to try to win. I wont always make the weight I want for the week or I won't always makethe best grades but if I don't give my all how will I bever become the best version of me? I have to remember the message of The Climb and keep pushing on and I have to believe I can reach it, I'm strong, I'm me, I have to believe in me and thats the scary part.

    emoticon No one promised us this life would be easy. That's something my mom always tells me when I start to feel really down and when I want to just quit. It's true. We're always going to have some kind of struggle but fighting through and pushing forward is what makes the journey interesting and worth it because in the end you'll get somewhere instead of sitting stagnant. It's okay to be afraid but don't let that fear paralyze you. You really can do anything you set your mind to. And it's awesome that you have that want inside to push forward. I believe in you!! You CAN do it!! emoticon

    I really love your reflection on this song. It's so hard to admit to yourself that you're not giving it your all because it's a little hard. It's even harder to admit that you're scared. You should be so proud of yourself for doing both!

    The first step in becoming the way you want to be is deciding what needs to change... and believe me, I can relate to the negative thought patterns of "all or nothing, " "Now or never," and wanting things easy. Unfortunately, there is no instant gratification with weight loss.... so we need to re-train our brains to be satisfied with giving it our all... that is all we can do and it will be enough, if we don't give up. emoticon
