I'm away from the computer for most of the day, but I've been putting this post together for a little while now. Some good reading (in my opinion)....
Often I come across certain posts that really stand out for me. I've been thinking that I want to add a little section once in a while of NOTABLE POSTS. These are posts that stick out for me, for whatever reason.
Here's what has struck me recently....
Pudget: How To Eat At McDonalds - I love the part where she talks about being an influence on her daughters, especially this statement ... "if they see Mommy eat the "unhealthy food" in moderation, every once in a while, they will hopefully realize that it is the way to do it."
Prior Fat Girl: Life is Unfair What a powerful thought here ... "There is a millisecond of thought that goes into every decision to binge or comfort feelings with food - millisecond, I swear. It's in this millisecond which you have the power to stop yourself."
Dancing Through Life: Who Do You Look Up To? I believe that we all have the ability to choose our own destiny. That being said, I also think that the universe gives us the tools and influences we need to get there, including the people to guide us along the way. I know that these people were put in my life for a reason, but it was up to me to find them and let them in. This is a bit of a scary thought for me. While I agree with her, I have a hard time implementing it because I rarely let anyone in. I hope one day I can find the strength and the courage to do that.
One Last Kick At The Cat: Powering Through Frustration. Impatience. Indifference. Desperation. Disappointment. These are the just feelings. They are feelings that make sense. They don't define me. They aren't a reason to give up. If I expect that they will go away and never return I am fooling myself. I can't expect to feel 100% ON all the time just because I have made this commitment. But I can expect to cycle back through all the good emotions if I just stay the course. Nothing to add .. couldn't have said it better myself. Completely mirrors my thoughts.
