“I’m not givin’ up
I’m not givin’ up, givin’ up, no, not me
Even when nobody else believes
I’m not goin’ down that easily
So don’t give up on me”
I used to listen to this song a lot when I was pregnant with Peter. I’d sing my heart out to him and his older siblings, because I knew I wasn’t my best but that I’d eventually come around.
Tonight I needed a pick me up while doing dishes, so I started listening to songs that pump me up. When this song came on I sang my heart out again, but this time around to myself.
I’ve been learning how to eat intuitively. I’ve been taking note as to why I often emotionally eat, and learning strategies to help fuel my body better.
Today was not my best though, I knew I should’ve been making different choices and yet kept making the same old mistakes.
When the song come on, it was exactly what I needed to hear. Don’t give up on me body, I’ll get there I promise, because I won’t give up on you!
Tomorrow is a new day, and new habits take time and effort. I can do this! Progress, not perfection!
