THE SKIN I LIVE IN; 100 POUNDS & DOWN! – Day 4

 

Setting the tone for weight loss success has a lot to do with personal attitude. I’ve been readjusting my attitude a lot lately. I’ve had the opportunity to do a lot of cool things, meet a lot of cool people and see a bunch of cool places. But in all of that, the hustle, the pressure of living I’m seeing now that I have not always had my ears, eyes or heart open for that matter, I have not always been “Present” as my sis Niecy Nash would say…” baby, Stay Present!

Being that I’m on the tightrope of accountability and transparency now, I’m looking and noticing that I very well might have been so consumed with what I wasn’t, what I didn’t have or who I didn’t know that I became a mystery to myself.

I like to say that I’m an extroverted introvert. I know how to be “on” but that does not make me “present”. I know you know what I’m talking about; a room full of people but still alone, it’s your birthday but everyone else is celebrating it better than you. I’ve even been the person who is SO happy and content that that was a lie too. Just another face I put on, a way to disregard or elude my true feelings. My true self.

Uncovering, shedding the layers fighting for new air in a suffocating world has made me take shorter breaths yes, but it’s also made me think about the spaces and places I want to breathe in. Do I even want the “dream” I’ve reached for? What if the best place, resource for air is right here in the now and the clearing of so much personal junk. I believe that there is a time for everything under the sun… Maybe the time I’ve so dreamed about is contingent upon my renewing my mind and rebuilding my spiritual walls.

Needless to say, I’m “THERE”, “Here”, and “Present” I’m in a space and time of success that is completely dependent upon my being Honest with me. I’m becoming ok with today being a less than perfect day, or the fact that changing my diet will at times mess with my energy and attitude. I’m not saying that I can just go off on others because of what I’m choosing to live now, but I am definitely ok with not putting on a face so You can feel better about My mood or attitude.

The truth of the matter is that I’m human, and though that does not grant me a pass to The Thom Foolery Show, It does mean I have a right to every emotion and feeling God blessed me with. I’ll cuss and scream; I’ll cry and moan, I’ll push and fight with everything in me. Hell! I may even throw things. Lol. I’m detoxing every part of me, and well hell, it doesn’t feel so good.

With that, I’m off to eat this damn grapefruit that I’m swearing will taste like a Mandarin Chinese Chicken Salad lol.

Look I make no false promises, no false hope only the real deal, this is what I’m doing to change my life. I love singing and performing, I love speaking and teaching and I want to be able to do these things for the rest of my life should the good Lord allow me to. I just know that it’s gonna burn is all, lol. I ain’t no punk though. I know it can and WILL happen with me applying what I’m learnign and believeing that I can do it.
