It Is No Longer Enough To Simply Survive

The world is indeed full of peril
And in it there are many dark places.
But still there is much that is fair.
And though in all the lands,
Love is now mingled with grief,
It still grows, perhaps, the greater.
J.R.R. Tolkien

Every morning I wake to face a brand new day. With depression and chronic heart failure, some days are dark and full of peril. But through it all, there is much that is good.

Today is August 1st, the beginning of a new month; and what better day than today to commit. With all that is going on outside of my control, there is much that I can take control of. One area that I have lost control is my weight, and I am regaining control.

It is no longer enough to simply survive. It is my time to thrive.
