“You have reached your destination” … These are the words we long to hear when we embark on a journey… They symbolize the finality of a long trip, the culmination of hard work and persistence to reach a specific point, and I think most importantly the end of a tiresome journey. Putting things into perspective… My destination has been the harbour of discovery of self, It has taken me many years to find me but I am extremely gratefully to have docked at this port and plan on laying anchor right here for a while as I explore and enjoy basking in the beauty of… ME! A woman that God has made in HIS image and one who my father loves immensely.
I spur You, Yes you, the one reading these words, I spur You on to reach your destination and to continue until you reach your goal of finding that little island called ‘self’. The journey promises to take time and you will need perseverance and determination despite what is thrown in your path along the way, But stand firm, brace those beautifully strong shoulders and continue to move forward none the less…
My biggest victory has been the realization that the weight I’ve lost through this process is a ‘bonus’ the true victory lies in a complete mind change regarding food, the way I eat and most importantly the way I see myself.
So… full steam ahead friends, I look forward to the moment when we can announce that “YOU HAVE REACHED YOUR DESTINATION”
