Time to stick up for yourself
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Part of maintaining is going to be standing our ground and sticking up for what we want. I'm starting to practice already. For example, I have two weekends to spend in the big city. I know that the whole time people are going to be pushing alcohol on me.
I say no. I don't care if you pour me a glass anyway, it is your foolishness that wastes the wine. I'm not drinking it. It is time that I stick up for myself and stand my ground. If you buy me a drink, well then you just wasted money didn't you. That is not my fault, I'm not drinking it.
Same with your desserts. I don't care if you spent 4 hours making that cake, I don't want any. Thank you anyway. You chose to spend 4 hours making it, I didn't ask you to.
I have put myself second for most of my life and I'm sick of it. Now I am putting my health as my #1 important thing and I'm not backing down.
I have got the Pina Colada drink mix to be my replacement for a "drink". It is yummy.
