When people ask me…How did you do it?
Change your diet while feeling sick as a dog during chemo?
Exercising while you could barely get up in the morning?
Never drank any alcohol after your diagnosis?(after binge drinking for 15 years)
Let go of your past?My answer is simple:
𝐈 𝐖𝐀𝐍𝐓𝐄𝐃 𝐓𝐎 𝐒𝐔𝐑𝐕𝐈𝐕𝐄
I wanted to live so badly that my pain became bigger than
Saying no to chocolate or blue cheese became easy
Saying no to alcohol which I was addicted to was fine(no I wasn’t considered an alcoholic but I drank away too much)
My pain became bigger than my willingness to let go my past and forgive…
Than my stupid stubbornness to being rightI wanted to live…
I was prepared to do whatever it tookAnd this is why I am here today

Until my pain was bigger than my commitment to putting myself in an uncomfortable placeI’d be honest…I’d have just stayed there…
Doing the same things getting the same results…

If your pain is big enough that you want to change your habits…
If your pain is big enough is keeping yourself awake at night…
If your pain is big enough that you feel overwhelmed by it….
