I have come to a realization. I am no longer willing to accept a life of mediocrity. I feel as though, up until this point, I have floated along, hitting mile markers in life that have been set by my expectations of life as it, “should be.” I have two bachelor’s degrees, and a master’s degree. I have a well-paying job and a nice, spacious house. I have two children, and two animal children (dog and cat). Along with these accomplishments I have a large amount of student debt, a large waistline, and a small sense of self-worth.
I feel embarrassed that I didn’t go further in my education, and that I don’t make more money. I ballooned to a whopping 285 pounds and feel as though I have no self-control and never will. I have an overwhelming sense of being, “not good enough,” and being, “unable, and unworthy, to attain greatness.” I have felt less-than-adequate as a student, in my career, as a mother, as a wife, as a friend, as a homeowner, and as a member of society. I feel as though I have tried, and failed, to set goals, lose, weight, become wealthy, and increase my knowledge. I have a constant stream of negative self talk circulating through my head during every minute of every day, a constant reminder that I haven’t followed through on my dreams and goals. But, I am not these thoughts.
I am a woman unwilling to continue settling for mediocrity. I am unwilling to continue merely existing. I have not yet reached my full potential. I am a strong woman who is fully capable, and willing, to put in the work to strive for change. I may have setbacks, or roadblocks, in my journey, but I will continue to strive for constant improvement because I AM RELENTLESS. This is my journey to self-acceptance, and the transformation of my mindset, physique, health, and finances. My intention is to document this journey, and to inspire others to live their lives relentlessly.
