# Rudolf and Hermey the Misfit Elf

### Sunday, September 04, 2011

Remember when Rudolf and Hermey the Misfit Elf (who wanted to be a dentist) were choosing to help one another follow their dreams in the "Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer" and they began singing --

"Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking out the door

You never will get where you're going
If you never get up on your feet
Come on, there's a good tail wind blowing
A fast walking man is hard to beat

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking out the door

If you want to change your direction
If your time of life is at hand
Well don't be the rule be the exception
A good way to start is to stand

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking out the door

If I want to change the reflection
I see in the mirror each morn
You mean that it's just my election
To vote for a chance to be reborn

The constant refrain is "put one foot in front of the other". When we want to succeed we simply put one foot in front of the other. Nowhere does it say we need to jump over busses or leap over tall buildings in a single bound. We must learn to walk before we can run. Just like life our weight loss cannot come in "leaps and bounds" but instead lets put one foot in front of the other.

That is the key- Get up and put one foot in front of the other. Step by step and day by day. Every good choice is step in the right direction.

Would you believe I've never seen that moving! BUT I love the "put one foot in front of the other!" Now I need to find some reindeer antlers or elf ears to wear when I moving my feet!

I love that song! Been enjoying your blogs (I'm also on the Living with Diabetes board) and the messages you're sharing. Also, I love your flowers. I live in Ohio too (near Cincinnati) and I wish we were closer because I could use some advice for replanting my garden area in the back yard!

One of my favorite Christmas movies. I always identified with the misfit toys. Even as a kid I didn't fit in.
