To date I’ve worked with many ladies with big goals about their life and health. The ones who make progress are the ones who are willing to do two things: try and learn. That's it. It isn’t that complicated and it doesn’t involve perfection. Just try and learn.
Perhaps this challenge you didn't complete 100%. We are one day away from the finish line and you feel both frustrated and thankful. That is so normal. Honestly, sweetheart, I would love to meet the person who did this 100% on their first time (or even their second). However, you were here and you worked hard. This journey isn’t over if you aren’t done.
You get to decide. Are you done trying? Or, are you ready to keep learning? Guys, I’m still learning. I can do things now around food and alcohol that I thought were completely impossible, but I still feel like I have more growth to do in my health and habits. Every single follower of Christ will always feel this because until God calls us home, He is delighting in pruning and growing us. John 15:2, ESV, always makes me smile: “Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” You see, every single thing that God asks me to take away or improve, He is doing so that I might bear more of the fruits of the spirit here on Earth.
Keep going, my dear.
Today, your journal prompt is: What have you tried? What have you learned? What will you be doing when this challenge ends?
