So Sunday I had a tantrum at not achieving the weight loss I thought I had earned through good eating and exercise, really mature. NOT
Then a higher power sets into motion some illumination for me.
Firstly I watch a programme called "the woman with gigantic legs" in a nutshell a woman with a genetic fault that caused her legs to continue growing until they are malformed and weigh about 7stones each, is she sorry for herself? NO, she continues with determination and courage, she takes control of her life never settling for the first answer she is given.
Secondly a programme about a man born with bones missing in his feet which are amputated very early in life, does he sit back and bemoan his fate NO he runs, he plays rugby, in fact there is barely a sport he doesn't take part in, he is more able bodied in his disability than anyone I know.
My sons girlfriend is looking for a dress for a wedding we are both going to, she trys a couple of my dresses on, OMG she is the same size as me, I saw myself as much larger. We go shopping together she doesn't dwell on her imperfections, where as I would be there picking my reflections to piece.
Okay Lord thank you, point made.
