Do Over!

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

Don't ya wish that some days we could have a do-over yet still retain the lessons learned from what we wished we did differently? Yesterday was that for me, so today is a new beginning and a new outlook. I look at the last two days as a shove from behind into the right direction. I reckon I was beginning to get a little lax anyhow, so a tightening up and a big slap of realization was good for me.

If I'm claiming to make a lifestyle change to a better and healthier me, yet throw in the towel when temptation hits, then just how serious am I about the change? My mindset has GOT to be focused on always having to make right choices. Something we were telling my daughter about last night. We gave her a promise ring with lots of explaining and expectations that the ring represents. I reckon I could use a promise ring of sorts for my own self as a reminder to make good life choices.

I remember reading somewhere about a woman who wrote GIW on her hand, so each time she reached for something that was not a good choice, she was reminded, "God Is Watching."

I will find something that will be my "promise reminder."

by the way, Red Lobster was delicious :) and luckily we very seldom go there, so it was a real treat.

also, my Sparkpeople bumpersticker came in. I won it on my sparkwheel, which was cool. I wish I could win a t-shirt, too, but I've only had a shirt on my wheel once.

Have a wonderful day full of good choices in keeping with your promises to yourself!

Live Aloha! ~Nani

    Hi Nani,

    Great words to speak. I look at every day I awake as a new day to get it right. Remember, we did not get this way over night so we will not change our bad habits over night. Each day will get better and healthier. Keep up the good work.
