My cup is half full

Hey everyone!

So I’ve been having a hard time recently. I am really struggling with my self esteem right now and I know this journey comes with ups and downs. So to help me get out of this funk I want to write a few things that I am grateful for.

  • I am greatful for my family and friends.
  • I am greatful for this blog and the chance to document my journey
  • I am greatful to all of you for being amazing people
  • I am greatful for the 99 pounds I have lost
  • I am greatful for being healthy
  • I am greatful for the opportunity to see my self and see how far I have actually come
  • I am greatful for optifast
  • I am greatful for the journey ahead of me
  • I am greatful for the challenges that I am presented with because they give me an opportunity to grow and become stronger πŸ’ͺ🏻

This is something my aunt has always told me to do when I feel down is list the things I am greatful for and I can tell you I already feel better. What are you greatful for?

  1. First of all: I, personally thinking: thought that you should’ve responded that your cup is HALF EMPTY! (A PLAY ON WORDS!) for meeting HALF YOUR GOAL! πŸ™‚ Also, I like being “weak” – – I’ve been called a Biblethumper – but scripture says: “When we are weak – He is strong.” Weaknesses therefore are important. A fine-line as with many things in life. Gotta’ look at all angles. And just when we “think” we’ve seen all angles – wa la! Another angle shows up. Go figure. πŸ™‚

    1. I am feeling much better!! I did get through it, actually ended up hanging out with my cousin and was able to let go of the negative feelings! Thank you for the support πŸ™‚

  2. Aw I’m sorry to hear you are struggling at the moment. Girl you are beautiful and have done so well. Look at all you have achieved! You are amazing. And well done on focusing on something positive. Gratitude is a great way of realising how blessed we are. It’s hard to feel any negativity when we are feeling grateful ❀

  3. technically your cup is always full. It’s just that half of the cup is filled with potential *winks*
    (look at me being all philosophical and stuff…)

    I’m grateful for my amazing friends
    I’m grateful for having a rational mind
    I’m grateful for my achievements so far and the journey I’m on
    I’m grateful for my amazingly supportive doctor (who actually showed up to watch the pride parade and shouted my name to give me a hug and say I looked amazing)
    I’m grateful for living in a safe country where I can walk down just about any street at any time of the day or night without worry
