What's Holding You Back?

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not." ~unknown

I love this quote! I have been thinking about it a lot lately, and how everything we do in life is based on our attitude. I have noticed that when I am not positive about something, it just doesn't seem to work right or I get frustrated...but on the flip side of that, thinking positive...ANYTHING is possible!

I have been trying to stay positive about a lot of things going on right now in my life. It seems like when I have control over one area of my life (right now it is working out/eating right), the rest of my life is in chaos...my house is a mess, I don't know what I am going to cook for dinner... the list goes on, so I will spare you the details... But why can't I just get it all together? This is what I will be working on!

I am going to do another trial run on Monday and if it goes well I will ease myself back into the running...you know 8 miles a day...( : Just kidding.

We are having a huge garage sale tomorrow and Saturday. Wish us luck to get rid of all our junk and hopefully make some money off of it!

I hear you on the chaos... when things are calm at work, the house is a disaster and VICE VERSA! But good for you keeping your health a priority! I do find that when I eat right and exercise, I am better able handle the other curve balls.

G'luck with the garage sale!

Chaos is always in my house! I love garage sales because you get rid of all of your stuff and then you get to make some money :-) Good luck!!!

I feel the same! I have been great about getting to the gym this week and getting in my workouts, but my house looks like a hurricaine blew through. I always figure the mess can wait...it will be here when I get back. Have fun at your garage sale! My development has a huge one every May and I LOVE it!

It can totally relate to what you are saying. That's why they say moderation is key. I hate when frustration takes over because you feel like you can't handle everything that is thrown at you. Hang in there and good luck on your trial run.

Attitude is everything. I find that simplifying life helps the best in feeling like things are under control and then letting go of what doesn't really matter.
