It doesn't matter how many times we fail and fall, what matters is how many times we get up and try it all again. Mistakes and failures don't defy us, they shape us and if we learn our lessons from them, they will help us move forward.
In the world that is full of amazing possibilities, why is it so difficult to walk away from things that does not make us happy? We stay in unhappy relationships, bad jobs, uncomfortable situations, we stick with bad habits and bad influence, but why? It is not like we don't know that we are in a bad place. We do know that, we admit that, we speak about it, we complain about it and yet we do not walk away, even more so - we try to justify why we are not walking away.
“She's fierce, she's blunt and she's unapproachable” someone said. Is that so, I wonder? What do you actually know about her?

This is not a story about how to start a healthy lifestyle, my story is not about changing eating habits, starting to exercise, drink more water or learning to love myself more. I have been eating well, always preparing meals from scratch at home, consuming lot of veg and fruit, drinking enough water, exercise regularly, I am a dancer and have always been active, yet, for three years my weight has been gradually going up. It would not matter what I do, how much I eat or don't eat, how much I exercise and how healthy and clean my diet is. I was struggling with chronic fatigue, I would not be able to get a good night's sleep and every morning it was a real struggle to get myself out of bed. I was a prisoner in my own body. My mind was being strong, ambitious and willing to conquer the world, were my body just kept saying "not today" over and over again. I had a feeling like my own body is working against me and I knew that it will require special approach to change that.
