It's always easier to blame others, that's just human nature. This is not to say that sometimes they aren't actually valid reasons. Parents that focus and dedicate their lives to raise good children most definitely sacrifice much in doing it. As their children get older and more able to do things on their own though, we parents need to learn how to stop using them as our excuses and get back to living our lives properly. Keep the faith.
I blamed being busy I think. Law School, starting my own business, 4 kids...who has time to be healthy? I realized that without my health, none of that means anything. Now I do want to set a good example for my kids, and be healthy for them. I showed them how to excel at school, and I am setting an example for them of hard work and sacrifice to attain ones goals...but I also want to show them how to be responsible for my own health and well being.
My kids have struggled along with me both financially and personally as I have made this life change....they deserve to enjoy the benefits that will come with it. I have to live long enough and be healthy enough to give them that!
