Today was a long day...went and tried to get rid of the last of our girl scout troops cookies.
we did pretty well and only have a few left.
so it's all good there.
Then I decided to go grocery shopping...
and so did everyone else.
but as I was pulling into the parking lot I pulled up and parked very nicely next to a car...left plenty of space. We were evenly aligned.
Then I got out and looked down.
I was crooked as heck.
The person I had aligned myself with was either on a drunken bender or was having some sort of seizure as they parked....
But I parked in the way they specified.
So who is the bigger fool. lol.
I got back in my van and backed out...and then parked between the lines.
Leaving the other car sitting there...it's error now obvious instead of repeated.
Ever do that.
align yourself with another car only to get out and realize you parked poorly because they did?
It's the same thing with just about anything in life.
Don't park your car according to other people's standards.
I have to keep reminding myself..
human beings are error prone.
I should know, I am one.
There are lines..
In my world made by God.
That's the line I should be walking..
I shouldn't be going around saying..."well, I don't use the f word...so I am not as bad as ____________"
At least I don't judge others on their appearance...
My standard isn't the lowered expectations of other people.
Just like my diet isn't based on the crap other people are currently shoving in their face...
my exercise level is not dependent on whether my husband joins me.
And what I do with my life isn't contingent upon anyone else's expectations.
I have been thinking about the things I have always wanted to do....
and one thing I have always wanted to learn, is to play the piano.
I think I am going to get me an 88 key keyboard and learn.
It will take some time to save up the money.
There are lessons on that youtube.
But If I don't start,I will never learn.
If I hadn't started exercising and eating right, I never would've been a size 8/10.
My husband said He had 'given up' on me being thin and thought that was the way I'd always be....fat.
Luckily I didn't settle into other people's expectations.
Not even my own.
Each day...You have to draw your lines and park in them.
Don't park according to someone else's lines.
