LEADING A PASSIVE LIFE
Tuesday, October 02, 2007
What I just read really hit home. "The story of your life will be written with or without your help. The next chapter is happening now. Will you wait to see what it says latter or will you help write it?" I have drifted through life, accepting whatever came to me instead of making changes that could have benefited me. I thought being passive was less stressful, but I have made many decisions that caused great stress in my life. Not taking care of my health was one of them. Oh, I did do a lot of planning; making out menus, making out scheduels, planning exercise, joining numerous weight loss programs, but became easily discouraged and didn't follow through. One thing I have learned is that I am a perfectionist. That doesn't mean I lead a perfect life. It means that if I am not doing things perfectly, I give up and do nothing. That is one thing I am working on. I will never be perfect at anything. It is OK. It is better to do your best at something than expecting perfection and doing nothing because you are unable to achieve it. To better health.
