Wow. I think in any kind of rut, people can relate to that statement. After I saw that statement, I wrote it on a large index card and stuck it on my mirror. It serves as my daily reminder to check "Hey, how am I feeling about life right now? Am I loving it?" If the answer is "yes!" then good, and if the answer is "no," then why not? What can I do to fix that?
I'm not always good about doing a daily assessment, and sometimes, I let myself make decisions I'll regret later, like eating more ice cream in one day than I should have in one week.... Sometimes it does seem easier to ignore a couple of pounds creeping back on than it seems to sacrifice dessert and start doing push-ups. However, none of my dreams involve sitting lazily on a couch eating ice cream. Some of my dreams involve being fit, like my dream of running a half-marathon.
A Disney half marathon, to be exact.... I can't wait to be the one running in mouse ears!
This post may seem silly, but for me, it's good to re-focus every once in a while. I don't want to lose sight of what's important to me, and something I really value is my health. From experience, I can tell you that I am at least a hundred times happier when I feel good, physically. If I don't take the time to take care of myself, it is bad news bears. So here's to listening to Dave Ramsey and going after my dreams!
