Article I read--Part 1
For some reason today, this article really made an impression on me. As I was reading it, it sounded oh so familiar. We try to strive for perfection, and when we fall short of that goal, we tend to stress out, and feel like a failure, and just give up. I have 2 children, one is eight and the other is three. When I watch them, it is so amazing. The little one does not give up becasue he does not know how to do something. His sister will patiently show him again and again how to do something, and then when he finally gets it, he comes running over to me yelling, "I did it, I did it Mommy". I think that I am going to start taking the same approach to this healthy living. I may have learned a lot of this stuff before, and as I read the articles, and talk to other people, I am relearning a lot of what I already knew, but have pushed to the back of my mind. I will continue going until I get it right!
