Chapter 20, "Leave high school forever."

 I read something very similar to this the other day. We leave our first schools as dreamers, full of energy  with few worries or concerns but somewhere along the way to the next one we take on a fear of what others think about us. It stays with us but it doesn't have to and SC goes on to say. "You can motivate yourself by yourself, without depending on the opinions of others." The question to ask yourself is "Why should the way I feel depend on the thoughts in someone else's head?"

In other news........ The weight loss has stopped. My girly friends tell me I've "plateaued" and need to up my game a bit. I've temporally put my plans to get a pair of  "Speedo's" on hold, until the lbs and/or ounces start to disappear again.
   Weirdly for a diary/blog for me about me I haven't written much about how I'm feeling. I think, because it no longer takes up as much of my thoughts as it once did (which is good) and honestly I don't want to face up to some of the setbacks that occur from time to time (not so good). However it isn't setbacks I'm going to mention here. I've noticed that I don't let things get to me the way they once would and often instead of dwelling on something I get on with it. Not as often as I'd like but I'm sure patience will prevail and that's something else that seems to have crept in. I have more of that lately too.
   Patience is a strange thing. I've always thought of patience as a wait and see thing. However the dictionary puts it another way. The state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way, or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity. I have to admit that's a lot for just one word to live up to.

Onwards and upwards in search of fulfilment :-)))
