Sometimes, Mom says things that makes sense to me.

Tonight, while talking about something completely unrelated, she told me, "You have the power."

She's effin' right.  I've got the power.  Sometimes I forget that.  Sometimes, I get frustrated and stuck in a loop.  Sometimes, I forget that I can do anything I put my mind to.  Yeah, it might be a little cheesy, but the fact of the matter is, it's true.  We all have within us the power to hit the goals we want to hit.

The trouble, I think, is remembering that we have the power.  It's there, just waiting for us to grab it.

I know I'm not the only person who sometimes feels like I can't make a difference, like I don't have a choice - that whatever I'm up against is all that there is.  But that's not true.  It can't be, right?  I mean, if it was that way, no one would enexpectedly be on top.  There would be no Cinderella stories.  There would be no upset victories, no triumph against all the odds.

Today, I'm going to promise to remember it.  I'm going to apply it to more areas of my life than just this whole weight loss thing.  I'm going to apply it to every little problem I run up against.  I want to challenge all of you to do the same too!  I want everyone to remember that they've got all the power in their little mind.  It's just a matter of harnessing it.

Let's do this.
