I like to art journal ideas & things that inspire me. I heard this phrase the other day & found some elements to decorate it.
There are "stories" that I've told myself for a LONG time . . . I'm not athletic. I'm kind of a geek. I'm a chocoholic. I'm not a morning person. I don't like veggies . . . and on and on and on.
How about I tell myself the truth? I can exercise & there are some things I enjoy doing: walking, DVDs, riding the stationery bike. Even geeks can exercise . . .
I'm not REALLY a chocoholic. I do enjoy a good piece of chocolate once in awhile, but I'm also a person who can moderate my pleasures.
I may not naturally be a morning person but I can make exercise a priority -- regardless of what time I get up.
And when veggies are prepared well -- they are quite delicious. I can eat more fruit & veggies without any regret.
So, I'm going to try living with truth & not excuses.
p.s. to all of the Christians who may be reading this, Psalm 51:6 NIRV is a great verse to meditate on.
"I know that you want truth to be in my heart. You teach me wisdom deep down inside me."
