I took this photo from my back porch the other day. Aren't rainbows amazing!? So beautiful. It is like the weather is trying to be nasty but the rainbow is trying to make everything beautiful again. It really looks lovely enough to have a pot of gold at the end of it doesn't it.
I just finished reading "Confessions of a Reformed Dieter" by A J Rochester. I think all those of us who have lost weight or tried to lose weight could relate well to her book.
It also made me think about goals, making goals and reaching goals and realising that we can really do anything we want to in life if we set our mind to it.
And determination - if we are really determined to reach our goal we can do it. A setback one day or one week shouldn't spell the end. The easy thing to do if things don't go our way is to give up, but if we just re-focus, get back to the basics of why we wanted to reach our goal in the first place we will get there.
It also made me wonder why some of us spend our lives wishing we had written a book, or travelled the world, or started a business or ........................
and some of us "just do it" as Katey Weighty would say. So from now on I will just do it!
