I Think I Can...

For whatever reason, day 4 of this calorie restricted diet is working for me. I believe that dieting is psychological. If we don't really believe it will work, we can't succeed. Belief is paramount to achieving anything. "I think I can" isn't just a popular line from a story about a train. It is the basis of all success.

I think I can....

  • lose 20 pounds
  • be a good mom
  • improve my relationship with my husband
  • sell more houses
  • launch a successful Skincare business
  • make you smile
  • buy a truck for Zimbabwe
  • give more money to my church
  • read the bible every day
  • hear from the Holy Spirit
  • combat demons
  • overcome my sin nature
  • make it to Heaven
I don't think I can
  • be perfect
  • get everything right all the time
  • scrapbook if i don't want to
  • be who you want me to be
  • have the body of a 20 year old
  • give up watching "the Bachelor"
  • eat a lot of fresh bread without "heavy" consequences
  • be a vegan
  • earn your approval
  • give up chocolate
I think I can believe there is a God who loves us and wants us.
