Make of it what you will

This is the power you have, this is the power we all have.  When you wake each morning you decide the course of your day.  I found this expression “Make Today Ridiculously Amazing” several months ago and I absolutely love it.

Since my journey began in January 2012 I have had ridiculously amazing days and I have had days that were hard and depressing.  I have spent some weeks where I gained and lost the same pounds over and over again, I have had weeks where I did not go to the gym at all and days where I have spent time thinking about things that I should have done or that should have happened.

In my journey I am striving to make more and more days Ridiculously Amazing by realizing that I am the one who has that control.  Nothing outside of me can influence how I perceive my day;  events and people and situations will certainly impact my day and the things I do in it, however I am the only one who decides what I do with those events.

Today I choose to have an amazing day!

Today I have finally broken through the 40 pound mark and to date I have lost 41 pounds…woo!  And today I am 160 days smoke free!

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.” – Aristotle
