ditching the Dew!

Good morning peeps.  I should be on the elliptical machine sweating right now, but here I am writing you;)  One of the most amazing things happened when we were on vacay.  I've talked about it on Instagram.  Okay brace yourselves.  It's major!  My honey, the one that always has a Diet Mountain Dew in his hand...he quit the Dew.  Like cold turkey.  Stopped.  Hasn't had one drop in 12 days.  To say this is a miraculous thing is NOT an understatement.  For as long as I can remember he's had this bad habit.  His only bad habit honestly, but bad nonetheless.



I'm not sure what happened.  He's tried to stop over the years, but was never able to commit.  Partially due to the fact that the withdrawal about did him in.  That's why THIS time he was able to do it.  Why you ask??  Cause the man is drinking COFFEE!!!!  I know.  Seriously my mouth is hanging open.  It's a day worth documenting.  At first he was hatin' on it.  But just like me five years ago when my bestie in Minnesota more or less forced me to start drinking coffee...after about 5 days in you start craving it;)  He stuck it out and now he actually wants it.  Yesterday he had FOUR cups!  FOUR CUPS!!!


We went to Starbucks last night and as we were sitting there "I believe I can fly" came over the sound system.  This morning my little chick had that song in her head and now I do too.  Let's read the words shall we...




I used to think that I could not go on
And life was nothing but an awful song
But now I know the meaning of true love
I'm leaning on the everlasting arms

If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away

I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

See I was on the verge of breaking down
Sometimes silence can seem so loud
There are miracles in life I must achieve
But first I know it starts inside of me

If I can see it, then I can be it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread wings and fly away

I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

Hey, 'cause I believe in you
Oh, if I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there's nothing to it

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread wings and fly away

I believe I can soar
I see me running through that open door
I believe I can fly, I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

If I just spread my wings
(I can fly)
I can fly
(I can fly)

I can fly
(I can fly)
I can fly
(I can fly)

If I just spread my wings
(I can fly)
I can fly
(I can fly, I can fly)
Ooh, I can fly
Hmm, fly, fly, fly






My favorite version is Jim Carey's in Fun with Dick and Jane.  One of my all time favorite movies by the way;)  Anyhoo I love the words.  I can FLY.  If I can see it, then I can do it.  If I just believe it, there's nothing to it.  Uh hello inspiration!!!  And it's so true.  There is just something contagious in watching someone do something hard for them.  There is something that clicks in us when visualize ourselves breaking free from a bondage or chains that are holding us back.


So I encourage you to challenge yourself.  It's a new year.  A fresh start right?!  What has a stronghold on you??  Visualize yourself running through that open door...flying free from that habit.  You can do it!  WE can do it!!!  And if you find yourself doubting just think...her man ditched the Dew.  Miraculous I tell ya;))




Have a blessed day.






coffee
bad habits be gone
running through that open door
birds chirping outside my window
