That is the thought that comes to mind for me lately. I sometimes place such lofty goals for myself and then get very frustrated when I am not seeing progress. I keep telling myself it is ok to cheer for the small successes that come my way.
For instance just today we had a party at work. Of course there is always wonderful food at these gatherings. A co-worker had made some homemade cupcakes which are usually not a problem for me to pass up. Here is the challenge though- she made these cupcakes with raspberry filling and lemon frosting. Fresh tangy lemon anything is always a favorite for me. Well I stayed strong for most of the meal but then at the end I decided to take just one cupcake and enjoy it later.
While this one cupcake I didn’t eat may seem small in the big picture it was a giant step in gaining control of my willpower. With each of these small steps I will continue to grow and move forward. These steps will take me on the most amazing quest of my life. My Quest to be My Best!
