Time for reflection: my choices can selfishly affect others

Saturday, January 12, 2013

So I know that if I eat healthy foods such as carrots, brocolli, salads (all which I like), I will eat much, much less of foods that are not so healthy for my body. Out of laziness, I can easily grab foods that are quick, easy with almost no preparation (truthfully, how much time/work does it really take for the healthier foods?). Tonight, a thought crossed my mind (of course about someone else before the finger pointed back at me). These choices I make are not just going to affect me. I have people who love me who will be affected by my health or lack of it. I have been the caretaker several times for loved ones. It hurt to watch them go through so much, and truthfully, it affected my life in many ways. Choices I make now in my eating will affect me and others. How selfish to not consider others by just eating any old way I want.

    Well said. I will keep your words in mind next time I want to blow off exercise.

Our compulsive overheating can be very selfish!

    You are really going to town on this blogging thing. I can barely eek out one a day.
Yes, I will say it out loud, it takes a bit of self-centeredness to get fat. I am selfish to want, want, want. God forgive me for my selfish ways.
