Fearless Thoughts

“Put Your Mind To It”

My mother told me years ago that I could lose weight if I just “put my mind to it.”

It recently occurred to me as I’ve begun to shed some pounds that my  mother has been saying this to me my entire life – “Just put your mind to it.”  It’s a bit longer than “Just do it.” but the meaning is the same.

For most of my life this advice has worked well for me.  Up until I lost my mind and then the doubts began to settle in.  It’s been a twenty year crawl to the point where I trust my mind enough to actually believe this statement again but my faith in my mind is back and my body is beginning to follow.
