Taking a lesson from my kids..
Sunday, March 21, 2010
We've had an unseasonably warm and snow-less winter in Saskatchewan. A week ago, most of the snow was gone and the mud was almost all dried up! Then, being a Saskatchewan spring--it snowed! (and more to come, oh joy!) The farmers and campers (fire bans) really need the moisture but I was really ready for spring!
So, while I was in my house yesterday, p.o.ed at the weather, my 2 youngest kids (10 and 14) went outside and made snowmen!! They had a blast and got very creative--they're awesome!
As I watched them, I realized that perhaps, instead of whining and pouting, I should just go with the flow and find some fun in where I'm at! Hmmm, you don't think this principle could be applied to other areas of life too?
Now, today, this is what I weigh, and this is what I look like. I do want to weigh less and be more healthy, but today, this is where I am. I don't mean that I am going to quit working on my diet and exercise, just that I am not going to feel bad about how I am now--I won't hide in a corner. I am me--I have a lot to offer, I have people who love me, I'm a good person--even over-weight!!
