I hereby declare victory in terms of decent decisions made yesterday.
We all know that every day is an opportunity to be a day one. In a sense every day IS day one. The first day of the rest of our lives. It's a cliché... one of many that happen to have the advantage of being true.
I'm still pondering what that "rest of my life" needs to look like. This whole month-long crisis of motivation has many roots. Looking back over my entire lifetime, most of my big slides back to sloth and obesity have begun in the autumn. Most of my successful healthy initiatives have begun at "odd" times... never the first of a month, first of a year... more like the end of February, or on into Spring.
Since I live in a geography with seasons, that kind of ties into the natural rhythms of life. The problem (lifetime) is one of the extremes that a slide begins. Important note to self: each good decision is a victory. String a few of them together, and you have a day of victory. You don't have to wait for Spring to make a good decision about taking care of yourself.
No promises. Just decisions.
LIFE is good. Spark on!
