All or nothing
Thursday, November 10, 2016
I've been asked to blog about when I last succumbed to an "all or nothing" attitude. Well, that would be yesterday.
Yesterday I consciously did not exercise, I did not eat well - well chocolate was involved, so I suppose that was good. It was very deliberate and thought out.
Was it for good reasons? No, probably not.
Was it satisfying? Yes, it definitely was.
It's hard to keep doing the same thing every day, being the good person, following the rules, and having little tangible results. It's even harder when you see other people completely flaunting the rules, ignoring their responsibilities, and then getting every goal they've ever wanted handed to them on a silver platter.
I am striving to be like Gandhi, but some days it's really really hard. You can be the change but it often seems like the rest of the world is trying to change back to the evil past.
