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!
