I have come so far in my journey to a healthy body image; getting over hang-ups and hurt feelings; learning to appreciate my body; being aware and intentional in my actions. Except today... I had a minor binge. I hope I'm not alone in having success and set backs.
I am a football junkie, and I love football analogies. In honor of tomorrow's gird iron battle, here is my analogy (GO COUGARS!)
|Rise & Shout! The cougars are out!|
That step back allowed the ball handeler to see the obstacles around him, and push off with momentum in the direction that will lead to the most success.
Set (step) backs aren't all bad. Our mistakes give us a chance to evaluate what we are doing and if it is working. We can see what tripped us up and how we can anticipate and overcome obstacles.
Today, allow a set back to be a momentum builder!
