Remember your why

You've probably seen that one meme, bag of potato chips by left at the weight section of what can only be a Walmart (glad we don't have those in South Africa yet, they seem so scary).

One of the reasons why I find that meme so funny, is that I can relate to it. It reminds me of the time when I eventually decided to cut the crap. You know, that point when you ACTUALLY admit to yourself that you cannot go on like that. It had to stop, you had to make a positive change in your life.

Remember that day? To me, it seems like such a long time ago. I get frustrated this days about the slow progress, some days feel like I'm actually regressing. You've probably felt this way at some point.

Ever look back? Ever realised how far you've actually come? Ever actually remember why you started?

The reason you are on this journey was so important, so powerful, it got your ass into gear. You got up, did something about your situation.

Remember that feeling? Time to harness that feeling, time go out there and renew your commitment to the cause. Remember why you do what you do.
