Thurs April 30 2015 - Honesty Day

Thursday, April 30, 2015

Honesty Day - hummm - interesting - we American's actually need a day (and only 1 day too) that we should be honest. Really??????? Being a Boy Scout Leader (for almost 20 years now) we teach our boys to be honest EVERY DAY!!! Not sure if I should be insulted or find this laughable to whoever came up with this idea and then talked whoever ever it is who decides to make a "day for this".

Are we in such a bad state human wise that we need to be reminded to be honest with ourselves or one another - obviously so...........so here's my honesty for "Honesty Day"

Sorry to say I've quit trying to fit into that "fitness mold"

I'm almost 65 and have decided that I will never be a size 5 again - nor do I really want to be anymore. I've gone from a size 5 to a size 14/16. I've begun giving away all my small and medium sized clothes that I've said over the last 20 years I'll get back to fitting into again (and again - and again - and again - and never do) and have become quite happy with it. Honesty - right?

I'm fortunate that I'm healthy and hopefully aging gracefully. I figure I have (hopefully - with God's blessing) I have 20 more years on this earth (maybe a little more - maybe a little less). I'm no long going to stress about ANYTHING - just try to eat sensibly - enjoy each day - and live the way I want to live (20 years may seem like a long time for someone 30 and under but not so much for the older generations)

Do I have weight I could lose - sure - I could lose some but I go to the doctor regularly - he reads my file - he sees the weight on there - it's not a massive amount of weight but if he doesn't have a problem with the weight I've gained over the years then I'm no longer going to stress about it either - my life span is now too short.

Here's my take on honesty - when we can be honest with ourselves - about how we look - how we feel about ourselves - how we fit into this world - then we can become more honest with others. It starts within ourselves.

Honesty Day - really?????
