Judge people by their actions, not their words...

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

More and more I realize how important it is to judge people by their actions, NOT their words. The same could be said for ourselves. The more honest we can be with ourselves, as well as relying on honest, dependable people in tough times, the better our lives will be.

For instance, I tell myself I'm a good dog owner, but because of extenuating circumstances I have let their daily walks fall to the wayside for the past two weeks. I'm now determined to make it a priority because my poor babies are getting a bad case of cabin fever. Not to mention I also look forward to our walks together. And since I haven't regularly been on the walks for nearly two weeks, I can already feel the negative effects, i.e., less focused, less energy, and general lethargy.

Last but not least, I need to improve on compartmentalizing. I can't let stressful life issues disrupt my basic daily rituals: morning walk with the dogs, eating whole food meals, getting at least 8 hours of sleep of night. How can I expect to tackle life's curveballs if I am not meeting those basic needs? From this day forth I will focus on making those three daily necessities a priority.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and productive day. emoticon

    I think that sometimes we know the truth but try to deny it because if we acknowledge it we must also take responsibility to change

    Definitely, I can relate to this! There are times I skip my dog-walks too, and the dogs moods decline. They so enjoy the walk and honestly, I do as well!

    So true! I find that I need healthy food and exercise especially during tough times - which are usually always. (smiling) Been thinking about you and hope all's well. Big hug.
