It's about taking each day as it comes, but by trying to make small progress some days and other days sustain balance, you can make steady progress, without any steps back.
It will still be a continuous learning curve, but the more you try to understand, the greater the chance to understand and the more you increase your chances of achievement with a physical goal like yours.
Be proud of each new thing you do, because by trying to see the positives in such things, you improve your chances more greatly, by developing the kind of mindset that will be more condusive to progress.
You're doing a great job, so don't stop turning the past few days into more of the same. It's little by little, but ultimately by trying, learning and constantly being open, about all the ups and downs to people like us, but ultimately to yourself, you will make it a bit easier to go forward and make the process less daunting sometimes.
You are your own greatest asset, you just need to find out the greater extent to which you can be so and develop the ability to use the mental and emotional qualities, you do possess.
Keep up the hard work, because so far the past few days have been very positive and progressive, but you are very human Christina and a true Lady in every sense, so don't ever be afraid to slip up or question yourself and know that when you do, it's okay and the questions and slips, shouldn't be a reason to doubt or make some backward progress, unless you let them
I hope you keep having more days like the ones you've been having. You deserve to smile and be proud of yourself for recent things, including your brave, strong, courageous admissions, about self doubt, inner pain and feeling inadequate sometimes and I'm proud of you for them and I want you to continue to grow, blossom and become happier, healthier and stronger, because when you smile the universe lights up and this isn't about looking back with negative feeling to deeds and people, but looking forward to better things and a bright future, for you and for the love you have with your significant other.
Good luck and keep on pushing, because this is another chance to learn, develop and grow as an individual. Use it wisely and don't be afraid of anything, just be proud to be you at the moment, because you've earned that right misses.
