Hello, people who are reading this, and welcome (back) to my blog,
Today I heard some wise words that I’m now going to share with you, my readers. “Every small success is a step in the right direction.” I really liked this because it’s kind of like what everyone usually say’s, that every small step takes you in the right direction towards your goal. My goals are to have a healthy body and a healthy mind. These two usually affect each other, especially when you suffer from panic attacks. Whenever I’ve gotten through a panic attack I’m exhausted which showcases how my mental health affects my body. And whenever I work out I always feel better afterwards.
I’ve got an unhealthy relation to sugar which affect me in my day to day life. Sugar has always been a weakness and one of my biggest enemies. I always feel awful afterwards I’ve eaten anything that I shouldn’t and I even puke whenever I eat too much, but sadly it doesn’t stop me from continuing to consume it. I’ve been trying to stop for a while now and I’m glad to say that I’m on my way to a healthier life. It’ll take a while but I can proudly say that I didn’t consume anything unnecessary today even though I was feeling like shit. That’s usually how it starts, with me feeling down and thinking that sugar will improve my mood. But today, I didn’t do it and I’m proud of myself. It may be a small success, but it’s mine and it’s taking me towards my final goal, one small success at a time.
So, instead of setting huge goals for yourself and trying to achieve them set small ones so you’re able to feel good about yourself for getting somewhere. The problem with having one big goal and no small ones on the way is that it usually feels impossible after a while. You don’t see your successes but only your failures and the fact that you haven’t reached your goal. By celebrating and being happy for every small success you avoid that feeling completely while still working towards your final goal. The road towards success is usually really hard and crooked with a lot of failure on the way. Don’t let one setback get you to give up. Fight for what you want and know that if it’s really worth it it’ll cost you blood, sweat and tears. Good luck.
Until next time, xoxo Ella.
