Change is good for more than dirty diapers.

Sunday, February 27, 2011

I am finding my mindset is changing, and for the better. Previously, I dreaded the thought of rising early to exercise. I loved sleep, and did not want to "deprive" myself in this way. Once I determined to make it a habit, I find that I am now actually looking forward to getting up early. I have discovered the boost that it gives to my attitude. I am a much more pleasant person after my exercise. My family definitely benefits from that, as does anyone else I come in contact with. I am obviously contagious. When I am more pleasant in the mornings, people are nicer to me, which makes me want to be nicer. I guess my attitude previous to the exercise habit was much like a stinky diaper in need of changing. Others could smell it, and found it offensive, but I, as the weare,r was oblivious. I feel much better after the change. I hope if I have other habits that stink to others, someone will love me enough to tell me to change that diaper too!

    Great analogy! We keep learning ... sometimes in the classroom, sometimes on the field trip. Either lesson valuable if we take the outcome to heart and keep the lesson as our own.
