So yesterday I decided to explore a new section of the walking trail. The posted mileage said 1 mile each way...my fitbit disagreed. It was actually 5 miles , Sooo I am totally worn out! ** 5 miles round trip**
Today was a busy day , but good. I walked the dogs 3 times and walked 1 mile at the walking track today.
My husband and I were talking about the boy scouts tonight , the badges and patches ect. And the following comment was made.....
" A thing only has value if you respect it's worth." In other words when you desire something-like a badge or patch-you see a value in it ...you admire the people who have worked to earn it.
and that's why you want it.
If you lie or "fudge" about the details in order to get that (badge/patch ect).Then you have minimized it's value. You may have the badge but you have degraded it.
This made me think about the SparkPeople badges and awards. And the stickers I give myself . The stickers especially. I mean I'm a grown woman with unlimited amounts of silly stickers. I could plaster them all over my calendar! I set the guidelines of when I get these stickers. I decide if they are just decoration, or if they represent any value.
Anyway, just a little thought for today.
