Choices

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

When I look at the choices of others, I sometimes wonder why they aren't making better choices. In Phx, there is a lot of support to help homeless get back on their feet - however, they must follow the rules or they are suspended from the program temporarily. I don't know why so many would choose not to accept the help or not to follow the rules. It is easy for me to look at them and wonder. Yet, I am blind often to the areas that I am making poor choices in and the real reasons I won't follow the rules. For the past two months, I have switched back and forth from eating in a healthy manner to mindlessly eating what I want. The scale has also swung back and forth. I think I want to not have rules - yet honestly, I know how much better I felt when I ate the way my body responds the most positively. It all comes down to choices and consequences. If I allow them, the consequences will teach me to make good choices. In pondering all this while I write, I am reminded of how much I need God's grace to do what is best. I realized this while I was losing - I need Him just as much if not even more in maintenance. Time to go seek the Source - the One who enables me to do what is needed.

    Good contemplation!

    I think there are many and deep reasons why we make the poor choices we do.

    Relying on God is soooooo important!!!!!!

    Blessings!

    Such a process...this journey. I find that many (most) of my battles are won or lost in my thought process.
    I think I almost need to plan a response for each of the varied "arguments" that my brain comes up with about (1) why it doesn't matter, (2) it's just a little bit, (3) everyone else is having some, (4) I need something sweet, (5) it's been a long day, (6) I deserve a treat for being so good, (7) I'm tired, (8) I just don't want to THINK about it... ETC! Ever done that before???

    You CAN stay the course. Make a plan AND work your plan!
    It matters to God if it matters to you! emoticon
