We all know about the race of the tortoise and the hare, right? Keep going no matter what. The race isn't always to the swiftest.
Have you heard the story about the chicken and the pig?
Goes something like this: A chicken and a pig run away from a farm together. Unfortunately, after awhile they both got hungry.
"We each have a lot to offer," said the chicken to the pig. "I will offer some eggs and you offer up some ham."
"Eggs are definitely an offering," said the pig to the chicken, "but ham from me would be a sacrifice."
Have you ever heard anyone say, "I'd give an arm and a leg for something like that"?
Really? That's a big sacrifice! Is it worth it?
What are we willing to do to reach our goals? Offering or sacrifice? Something without very much effort? Or something that takes a commitment of time and work?
I refuse to sacrifice my health for the simple pleasures of indulgence. Continuing on in this journey for health, I have decided to stay the course.
