TRULY. LIVE. EACH. DAY.

happylife-healthywife:

Formerly obese and unhappy, one day I decided I’d had enough. I’ve lost 160 lbs, become a 2x marathoner, triathlete, & I’m currently training for a 50 mile ultra marathon this August.

Getting happier & stronger each and every day.

It’s never too late to change your story.

If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.

TW: eating disorders, negative self-talk

This makes me so sad. I’ve just always thought like this ‘I’ll live when I get to this specific certain weight’, ‘I’ll be able to do this…’, ‘I’ll be able to wear this..’ Etc, etc. I’ve not once thought that this way of thinking could possibly be related to my eating disorder, I just assumed it was normal, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was considered normal. This is not right, and just like she says ‘why can’t we live now?’ We are missing ‘years of our lives’, it’s true! We are. We will not get these years back, we will not have the chance to be able to relive past opportunities because you wish so so deeply that you could have been skinnier, prettier. It’s not going to change, your weight may change but you won’t see it.

Everyone should see this post, because it may open your eyes to thoughts you may think about, but don’t really notice it until it has been said or read.
It definitely has changed my views, I may not be able to change my thoughts for a very long time, but at least we can start trying instead of missing our entire lives wishing to be different.

Don’t listen to these stupid societal standards. You are you and don’t let anything stop you from living.

"The thing about a ‘comfort zone' is that it sounds, well, too comfortable. I call it a COMFORT PIT, because a pit is somewhere you want to get out of as fast as possible.” - Bear Grylls
It takes guts to get out of the ruts, but when you decide to try something new or attempt something bold and ambitious, the rewards are yours for the reaping. You start to feel alive. You start to notice the possibilities all around. And you get that thrill of discovery as you remind yourself you are capable of doing so much more. - Bear Grylls

Bear you get it! I’m very like this man… Like I’m actually very odd and awkward but I’m confident in a scary situation. No I don’t drink my own piss but I would if I had too!!!
