Day 178

“Momentum Lost” This is how I feel when I’ve made progress then relapsed. When I’ve grown strong then the wind blows me off course, I’m bent and broken and weak, and I lose all my leaves. When I’m running towards my goal of being healthy, then the enemy grabs hold and stops me dead in my tracks – all my progress falls away and is laying in a sad puddle of ‘why did I even try?’ under me – leaving me weary and broken once again. In this painting I see the pain of failure but also the beauty of my many attempts to overcome.
