"One experience builds on another and that is how life evolves. We should not simply "live and learn" but rather "live, learn, and improve." We all make mistakes in life. Do you learn from yours or do you have a cycle of making the same ones over and over? Perhaps you want to lose weight but always seem to fail, never seem to finish your reports at work, or have a hard time following through on your obligations. Examine some past failures and review where you went off track with your goal. Don't mistake failing with "I am a failure," as no one is perfect all the time. Take what you have learned and apply it to the next situation"
This was yesterday's Healthy Reflection" and was so apt for what I have been feeling lately in this weightloss adventure. I plan to learn from my failure in this. I plan to live and improve my life.
I have so dreaded my upcoming appointment with my RA doctor..she is the only one I have that really fusses at me for my weight..but then she knows the damage it does to the joints..and being that type of doctor, it is her duty to remind us what we need to be doing. So I will just go and take my medicine like a good girl and then keep plodding away at the weight loss.
My plan is to look at each day and see where I can succeed and where I can be more active. Coming back here is going to be such a big help.
