Happy Sunday purples!

Another beautiful day on the Gold Coast today!  At least it was when I drove back into town.  I actually went to Maryborough for a wedding this weekend and arrived back home today.  It has been a very busy weekend for sure, so I am super proud that I am still getting around to writing my blog today!  Woohoo!  Go me lol!!

Now that I have given myself a massive high five, let’s get back to the business at hand.  My weekly pearl of wisdom!  I don’t always know what I am going to write my blog about.  I know, I know…..I should plan these things…..but I am just not that organised as yet.  I will get there one of these days, but in the meantime, I am very lucky that the subjects seem to come to me through my life experiences and the subject of this week’s blog is actually about my experience last night at the wedding that I attended.

I have been to a few weddings over the last few years, so the one yesterday was not really anything out of the ordinary, except for some memories that it brought back to me.  For some reason last night I was reminded of my sister’s wedding which must have been about 8 years ago now I guess.  I am not always good with dates unfortunately, but I do know that I was absolutely massive.  My sister wanted me to be a bridesmaid and as much as I would have loved to have been her bridesmaid, I said no because of my size.  All of the other bridesmaids were slim, as is my sister, and I would have felt absolutely mortified standing beside all of them.  My sister said she didn’t care, but I did.  I felt embarrassed for myself and my family enough already, and I certainly didn’t want that captured in a wedding party photo.  When the wedding day came, I was so happy for my sister, but I was sad for myself, because I really wanted to be a part of it all, but I was so big that all I wanted to do was hide away in the back corner the whole night.  I realised last night just how much my life has changed and how much I enjoy life now.  I still have some things to work on, as do we all, but on the whole, I live life so much more than I did back then and all because I finally found the motivation, the courage and the strength to make the changes that I needed to make for my health.

Today I say to you with every bit of conviction and feeling that I have, that whatever changes you know that you need to make in your life, whatever that first step is that you need to take, find the motivation, courage and strength to take it.  You just need to take the first step, and then the next step will appear, and the next one, and the next one after that.  After a period of time, when you have taken step after step after step, you will look back and be absolutely amazed at how far you have come and how much you have been able to achieve from that very first step!

Have a great week everyone!
