I promise…

I will survive the following few days.  I will smile and be strong. I will remind myself there is light at the end of this tunnel. My tunnel is rather long; but it is a tunnel.

I will continue to work hard. I asked for it, they gave it to me. I will be better than my best.

I will read more. I will read to know and learn and not just because I need to read.

I will not go to food for comfort. I am lying right now as I am munching on a cookie. I will hence forth remind myself that it is only food. Not an arm or a shoulder or a friend. It is what is packing around my waist and is not good for me.

I will continue on my health plan. There is no wrong time to start. Now is always a good time.

I will take the high road. Even if that means I have to be a little detached.

I will learn to be a better person. Pettiness and hanging onto pain inflicting memories will lead me no where.

I will read blogs because I enjoy reading them, not out of curiosity. 

I will not beat myself over past failures. I have new battles to fight.

I will love myself. Only then can I do right by me.

  1. Just found your site and read this post. It’s great. Thanks for the inspiration. Guess we all have our long tunnel to get through. Ultimately, you’re right, we have to do it ourselves, by loving ourselves. But tell you what, I sure am grateful for the friends and community that help pull me through. Hope we can all reach out and help each other through when we need it most.

    Not this time. Sometimes we have to stop giving ourselves concessions. We have to move forward and upward.
