again, Sorry Guys!
I wasn't able to get to the computer much this week.
But my week was really full. Again, I can't post the pictures here...but will post them here.
I got to the gym. I feel much better but am still struggling to fit my food in with the families food.
That is why I will be making a menu for next week along with calorie counts. I will post Monday and wednesday and friday...
I heard something today that really struck me.
Well several things.
Things about the culture we are surrounded by and the ease with which we can be pulled into bad behaviors by the people around us.
We can be tempted to sink to the lowest common denominator.
Look at our politicians, the wall street bankers....It would be easy to be sleazy.
So many people are.
But we can choose to rise above all that...even if no one notices or cares.
We notice, we care.
We have to live with ourselves.
I think this is true.
When we use our circumstances as an excuse...
or our surroundings.
We are really just giving our power away.
When we accept responsibility for participating.
We are taking the power to RESPOND AND CHANGE back.
If the power lies in everyone else's hands...if it doesn't lie with you...
Then you have no feeling of control at all.
But if you take responsibility...you begin to change what you can control.
That is when change can occur.
If each person would take personal responsibility, refuse to take the easy way....how many people could they influence?
I want to be able to look back at my life and know I lived by my principles.
I spent a lot of time alone this week thinking and I wrote my life purpose...or my life statement.
It's something I read a long time ago in the book The seven habits of highly effective people.
It's basically what you want people to see in you...a kind of modus operandi of how you choose to conduct yourself and live life.
I never really got around to it till last Tuesday when It all just kind of flowed out of me.
I will post it on monday.
Crappy and short post, I know.
But I will be around on sunday to comment and leave a blog post on my frugal blog..
And...I will be blogging three times next week and responding to comments.
I hope everyone is doing well...and if you want to drop by and see my pictures here is the link.(oh, and here is a quick shout out to Mr. Putz...aka mr. puma...liking the new name Mr. Puma...rawr! lol)
