Heart Healthy Week: Willpower Wednesday.

Day Three…and it took some willpower to do this in itself.

Heart Healthy Week: Willpower Wednesday.

Lately, I’ve been annoyed. Like super annoyed. One of the biggest issues I’ve seen is people who want out of their situation but sink further into it. They want to change something so much that all they ever do is just talk about it. I’m totally guilty of this, especially when it comes to my “dieting.” I’ve wanted to lose almost thirty pounds for so long now I can’t even remember, yet I still find myself at Whataburger. I’m eventually going to have to dig down deep, buckle down, and get the willpower to change things. It’s not always about weight, maybe its about personal relationships or goals. People always talk about things, but never do anything. But where, and exactly what point do we hit before we say, “I’m actually going to do something!”


I remember when I started dreaming about this blog, dreaming about my posters to go into a school, and dreaming about my lungs being on a shirt. The overall dream seemed SO big, and honestly just too much that I would never, in fact, get it done. This to me is exactly what everyone does when they envision something…they envision the end result. Just remember loves, the end result is the result of the massive amount of steps you took to get there. It’s not one giant leap! I did this with my novel. I’ve been dreaming of it for quite some time, even special little moments that would happen in the book. I had so many in fact that when I sat down to write it, I immediately became exhausted. It was just too much. This is why out of all times in my life I chose November (while in school) and signed up for National Novel Writing Month…and won. It gives you one month to write a fifty thousand word novel. Impossible? No. Why? Because its teaching you to sit down and work through the steps, and actually complete them so that you can say you finished something. After staring at a computer for hours, upon hours upon hours, living through fictional stories (which was emotionally disturbing), and existing in a state of tired that I didn’t even know I would live past….I finished, and won. I cried when the NaNoWriMo team sang the winner song on the winner page I was directed to like a complete stooge.

Steps y’all, just a step. Before you know it you turn around to see how far you’ve come, and you realize you’re at the top. Just have the willpower to take the freakin step that is required to go anywhere…and you never know where you might end up.


P.S. – I might go do some sit-ups now…
