Last week my post for No Comfort Zone was about ‘being brave and speaking out’ and i did that and i half expected to come back to my blog the following day to find everyone had deserted me but i am glad to report only one person did – the guilty take the truth to be hard.
So today my No Comfort Zone is ‘Owning UP’. At the beginning of the year there were things i wanted to achieve and okay things changed in my life and i had to side step some of those goals and set lesser ones. However even the lesser ones have quietly been stacked in the cupboard under miscellaneous and dangerous to health.
Yesterday and again today i was reminded of some of those goals that i had set and i feel that i really needed those reminders. One the reminders was a blog entitled 100 days of Real Food’. This family did what i wanted to do but they did not fail, okay they are normal and side stepped occasionally but it showed me that my original goal of eating real food was sound, i just hadn’t pushed it to the limits, no one had cheered me on and in the end i had just quit.
Well it is time to own up and state clearly for all to read ‘i gave up’ and it was only through giving up that i then went on to fail. However i can start again. I have a very restricted food budget right now and so eating real food is even more important but like all goals it needs structure and clarity. It is 3 weeks and 2 days till my daughter gets married, it is by this date that i will have structure and clarity.
The other reminder i had was from Stopping the Wind who wrote an article entitled ‘Try one more Thing before you quit’. My friend was doing the one thing that i had suggested helped me in the past and was writing down what she was eating and drinking every day and then changing her diet to make things better for herself and not for anyone else. It is beginning to pay off, things are a-changing. I started it, i did it was several weeks, well about a month but then i gave up and i quit.
It’s time to own up and say it’s not good enough, i am a grown up and i don’t need anyone else to tell me what you should and shouldn’t be doing or eating or drinking or even thinking. So i would like to thank all those who sit and write, just for themselves but then share those words with the world, do not think for one moment that do not matter because to someone, today you will.
