Reality check.

Monday, July 22, 2013

So, I've really been struggling with my "diet" (I hate that word) and exercise the past several weeks. The past several days I've been feeling particularly bad...pretty sorry for myself. When I was at the gym this afternoon, there was a show on was a story about this guy who was born with no arms. (NO ARMS!) His name is Ritchie and he works at this auto/auto parts manufacturer. He types on his computer with his feet. He really loves cars...they showed him washing, repairing his 1966 Chevy Impala...Using a blowtorch with his feet! It was incredible. The guy had such a great attitude and it seemed like there was nothing he couldn't do.

Of course I felt like the biggest douche in the universe. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with me. I have no obstacles. I have nothing to "overcome." I'm not an underdog. I'm just a lazy, whiny, selfish, BONEHEAD who was in desperate need of a reality check. I think it's safe to say I got one.

Well played, Universe. Well played.
