Anyway, I realized how much better living is when you live for what you love. There are a lot of things that I need to accomplish before I can live my dream. I'm not talking years, but a couple months. But my view has changed. I do not look at working out as a sacrifice, it is simply what I need to do in order to get where I need to go.
No one cares about my diet story, so we will work with a different angle: school. I do not really enjoy going to classes, nor do I enjoy studying or research. However, school is simply something that needs to get done. It is not a speed bump in my life, but rather the new car I'm in. It is still getting me to my destination, but it never promised to get me there without trials and tests.
Simply, my realization is this: if you're truly doing what you love (or on your way to do it), then giving up is never even considered. I will do WHATEVER it takes and I will accept everything I am given in order to better myself.
I am confident that I will better myself and not let my worries about life get in the way. I don't have a boyfriend. Yeah, so what? I have a God that will never leave me, a plan that requires hard work, and school that consumes my life. I am happy with my life and grateful for all those who are on this ride with me.
Never give up; never surrender. (sorry, you just can't kill my inner nerd.)
Godspeed, everyone! ;)
