You were meant to fly. Burst forth from your cocoon and spread your wings before it’s too late to fly.
~ Catherine L. Taylor
Is fat your scapegoat?
Many people stay overweight because it gives them an excuse for not going after the things they really want in life. They blame their weight on their failures in life or use it to protect themselves from pain, but eventually an unlived life becomes a far greater type of pain.
If you feel this is true for you, the best thing you can do is to write out a list of the things that you feel you avoid or put off because of your weight. Then, begin to take small actions towards the things you really want to do. Don’t wait until you lose weight; begin to live your best life right now.
What does food and weight protect you from?
Let me know in the comments!
You will jump to it someday. Then you’ll fly. You’ll really fly. After that you’ll quite simply, quite calmly make your own stones, your own floor plan, your own sound.
It’s not enough to have the feathers. You must dare to fly.
― Cass van Krah
You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore. So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?
― Hunter S. Thompson
I take small steps in the direction of my dreams.
I embrace change.
I move boldly into the unknown.
I am excited to seek new horizons.
