3 years. I just reread my post on my 1 year anniversary and it was profound and amazing. A letter to myself from the future. Boy it was awesome and I loved the idea so much I do think I might go ahead and formulate another letter for my 3 year anniversary. I just keep getting better and better with time and more and more humbled honestly by what I am capable of. That girl, 3 years ago, had ZERO idea what she was in for. And how wonderful her life could be. And how much everything she ever wanted was within her all along. It was always there. Incredible.
Do you know what it’s like to truly love yourself enough to go for your epic dreams? I didn’t. It has taken a long time to figure it all out. But I am floored by the fact that I’m approaching 3 years. In the 11 years since losing the weight for the very first time I have only once celebrated a 1 year weight loss anniversary. The very first time. No other weight loss stuck a full year. And now we are at 3 years. Its beyond evident to me I am a completely changed woman and I won’t ever, like EVER be returning to that former life. I don’t even know how to anymore. I may get moments of blah or feeling lost but overall this is who I am. This is was who I was always supposed to be.
3 entire years. I feel like that totally calls for an off the charts kind of celebration. Except I won’t. It’s a Monday so what can I really do? But hint Sunday I might be doing something cool. Anyhow just wanted to pop by and acknowledge the epic-ness that is coming. I need to write a letter soon. Last year to celebrate 2 years I ran the Rock N Roll San Jose half marathon and got my PR at the time. I remember being incredibly emotional for lots of reasons. And here we are another year down. Whatever I’m doing in my life is clearly working for me. 3 years. It’s hard to believe how completely different your life can become in 3 years. Like night and day, 1000% different. And better. Never stop believing that you can achieve anything you desire. You have the power within you. Always.
