I won't give up!

I won't give up!!

This last week in jazzercise
our stretch routine has been to this 
awesome Jason Mraz song!


I know that the words are about not giving up on us

but...

everytime we do this routine,
i think more along the lines of
don't give up on me!!

This song is so beautiful! 
Here are some of my favorite lines from the song!

"I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get roughI'm giving you all my loveI'm still looking up"



"We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth itNo: I won't give up"


"God knows I'm tough enough"

Somehow...that constant reminder
that I AM WORTH IT
is so helpful!

Knowing that I can call on a higher power
asking God for help
asking him to help me remember 
that I am worth it~~
gives me strength!



why is this so hard to remember...
maybe cause i am so busy always trying to keep everyone happy!
i know, i know
I am a pleaser!
it is good, but it also sucks sometimes!
I try not to please :)...
and I try to focus on me...but I get distracted!

I think everyday
every single prayer that passes my lips include
"heavenly father, help me remember who I am
and to take care of me" 
:)

I always wait for things to be just perfect.
I want every piece in place.
but then I get overwhelmed and i forget my priorities!


my 3 main priorities for this year
1. my spirituality
2. my health
3. teach my children who they are
(in no particular order)


i will not wait for perfection to 
start focusing on my goals

I am enough!
We are enough!
God made us
in his image
beautiful and strong
full of potential
able to accomplish.
he will never give us a trial that is more than we 
can handle!

I can handle my weight loss journey
because God knows I'm worth it!




This has nothing to do with my post
but I saw it
couldn't stop laughing
like pee-your-pants laughing
and decided maybe you needed a good laugh 
as well!!




You're worth it!
Love,
Carly
