Sometimes it is really hard to stay positive. I think maybe it is human nature for people to look toward the more negative side of things. I know that I have to keep myself in check, that I find it really easy to get hung up on the things that I could do better on rather than celebrating the things that I have accomplished. But I am trying to change that mentality. I am trying to live in the now, celebrate this moment, I might not be where I quite want to be, but I am also not where I started. If you have followed me at all for any length of time you will know I am not an inspiration quotes kinda girl. I don't post them on my Instagram and I generally wont post them on my Facebook pages either. But, I have recently been carrying around a little notebook. I have been jotting a few things down, whether they are reminders, feelings, emotions, anything really. Sometimes, putting a little positive tidbit in there helps. And I wanted to share some of those, in case, in among the crazyness that has already occurred this week, you need a reminder that there is still a bit of positivity out there. Sometimes you just have to look for it.

Last week was mentally challenging for me, I was getting in the swing of things, and I was almost feeling comfortable and then I sort of just lost it a bit.  I am lucky that I have an amazing group of people keeping me honest and accountable, but even then, I wanted to have a break. I realised though that that wasn't going to do me any good so I trucked on. I gave myself room to breathe and I focused where I wanted to go. I did that. Not the support team, me. And I celebrated that win because I deserved it.

I lost another kilogram this week. That means since March I have lost around 14.5kgs. I still have a long way to go, to get to that first ultimate goal. But you know. 14.5kgs in 6 months is pretty great. It might not be as fast as some people, it might not even be as noticeable for some people. But this isn't about some people. This is about me. And my journey and the things that I am doing. And I am happy. I am positive and I am feeling like the next 14.5kgs are in my grasp. Run your own race, focus on your, spread positivity and light, build up other strong and incredible woman, use your brain and your words to encourage and motivate and most importantly, be true to yourself. Everyday strive to be the best version of you,  because in the end, that is all you can do.
