Goodbye summer :(

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

I realized today that in my dreading of the thought of summer leaving and fall arriving that I was thinking of this happening and that the arrival of September means that 2015 is over. And I was reflecting on what a dismal horrific failure I have been this year.

Then I stepped back and took stock of what entering September really means. It means that there are 4 months left in 2015! We are only a mere 2/3's done with 2015. There is a lot of living left in 2015.

There is time to change. There is time to make better choices. There are many, many days left to do the right thing and accomplish my goals.

My track record this far this year? Not good. But that doesn’t mean I can’t turn it around does it?

I can’t put a finger on why I started this journey 5 years ago. And why and how it suddenly became - not easy exactly - but not impossible like I felt it once was. I also can’t tell you why now it is so fricking hard and why I am struggling so badly to get back to a healthy weight.

I still feel like giving up sometimes but not today. Today I am choosing to see the start of September as a new opportunity. Like the seasons, a time for change.

How do you see September?
