I made it!
Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.
I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where my strength came from. A higher power? My awesome fiance? My Mom? All of the above and more! My fight isn't over, but I'm still hanging in there. When you want something, I mean really want something, you will do almost anything to get it. I can't believe 6 months of 2018 have come and gone. A few weeks ago was rough, but now it almost feels like a blip. Remember, everything is for but a season. Nothing lasts forever, even if it feels like it's going on and on and on. Pull your strength from the deepest parts inside of you, and borrow some from those around you too! No matter what goal you're trying to achieve, just remember, you've got this!
