I'm thinking about this question today, as I celebrate my 31st birthday.
I think I tend to approach life with an "I want it all"//"Why can't I have my cake and eat it too...what's the point of having cake if you can't eat it" attitude! www.youtube.com/watch?v=
Today I was thinking...ok so if I accept the truth that I can't have it ALL, then what do I really want? Do I want to be healthy, or to be able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want? Do I want to be lazy and enjoy slacking off, or be pain-free? Do I want to be safe and protected by my walls (including this wall of fat around me) or do I want to be in real relationships that go to a deeper level?
While the former of each of these choices may be enjoyable or comfortable sometimes, in the long term I really do want the latter things. That is truly living. It's not about giving up things, it's about choosing something BETTER. Here's to the good life!
