Your bigger "yes" !
I recently read this quote,and thought how it can apply to so many things. Whether you are trying to lose weight, quit smoking, change a bad habit, or live life differently, this quote applies. You have to say no to some things, and say yes to others in order to achieve your goals.
Putting your priorities in order and sticking to your goals requires not only discipline, but time. That is why many of us slip up, fall off the wagon, or turn back to our old ways, especially with eating. Our lives get busy, time is short, and it's less hassle to do what's easy, and what we've always done in the past. We forget our initial commitment, and the reasons why we want to make a change. It takes time and commitment to change our ways and to stick to the plan. Often we're short on both.
So when life is short on time, I'm going to step back a bit, catch my breath, and refer back to doing what I know works. A change can start with your next bite. Sending love and hugs to all of you!
Thought for the day: See above!
