Funny thing happened after I posted the last blog. I was listening to the radio on my way home from work. Dr. Laura was on and I get a kick out of her. She can be so abrasive sometimes that as a people person, it just causes me to cringe.
A lady was talking to her about the exact issue I was talking about earlier. And Dr. Laura in her no nonsense, no sugar coating it way, told the lady that she was making a choice. (paraphrasing somewhat)“You don’t WANT to be healthy, you don’t WANT fix this, you WANT to die young. I don’t get up early to work out because I enjoy it. I am happy and proud of myself when I’m done. At least I know I’m healthy and if I do die young, it won’t be because of something I did or didn’t do. You just don’t want to….”
Wow! You know what…..I think she’s right. No matter how I want to, as MSLZZY says “Make sure your reasons aren’t excuses”, find another reason for fighting myself. I’m responsible for that……shame on me.
