For years I've been wanting the exact same things, like for years. Not philosophical things like peace, love, joy, etc. Actual things like to finish my degrees or lose 50lbs or cuss less. Things that are achievable IF I put forth the effort.
I use to be lazy. I'm not anymore <~~~ see what I did there?? Speaking the positive I've my life. I want attainable things. And I will have them.
I worked out today using a DVD that I'm sure was purchase by me in 2002. 2002!!!! Sheesh
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
