I Was Brave

I was brave last night! I decided to weigh myself. I’m not sure what I weigh this morning, but last night I weighed myself and found out that I’ve lost 3 pounds since seeing the diabetic doctor. That’s okay I guess, but it’s not good enough to be at my goal. I guess, though, you have to go slow and steady or you’re more prone to gaining it all back (at least that’s what I’m told anyway).

So I was brave in that regard. Now can I convince myself to start listening to my audio therapy again and overcome my fear of elevators? I hope so! I feel terrible because in my heart and mind I know there is no reason to be afraid of them, and yet I can never force myself into one.

I was also brave the other day when we accidentally jammed the master bedroom door shut instead of just latching it shut. I tried to open it at first and it wouldn’t budge. I then yanked hard and pulled the door open. At last I was free!

So bravery is slowly making its way into my life, but I don’t know how long it will take before I can overcome most of my fears. I say most because I know we can never overcome ALL our fears!

Jesus will guide me through the darkness and into the light. I know He will do the same for you. We only need to ask and He’ll be right there to help us. Now, can I actually trust Jesus? Can you?

God bless!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
