Determination - Day 4 - #WordADayChallenge

Today's word is Determination

I find it almost comical that a word that hold so much promise, begins with the word deter because a determined person is not usually detered! 

Determination is sometimes confused with stubborness, and maybe they are related a little, but often stubborness refuses to admit mistakes or see another path to the goal. Stubborn gets planted in it's tracks, unable to reach the goal. Determination takes you over, around or through the barriers to your goal. Determination works when tempered with kindness, because you shouldn't have to run over or hurt others in pursuit of your goal. 

Right now I have a focused determination to better myself. I am in the process of reviewing a food fitness program and in such a short time, I am feeling SO much better in so many ways, that I am determined to maintain the healthy lessons I am learning. I LIKE how this has made me feel and I don't want it to stop! I am determined to maintain self control and not slip backwards. I want to stay on this better track. I am determined to be a better me, so I can be better for my family. I want to channel my determination into making our lives more simple, less cluttered and more enriching in ways that matter. 

Oh, and I am also determined to learn how to crochet and knit! That's not aiming too high is it?!?!?  :)
