how's it going.
I had a little something happen today that was a real clarifier.
Getting angry doesn't solve the problem..
In fact, anger can really inhibit a rational response.
Say you are angry because you are fat.
You look in the mirror and all the sudden you feel depression (anger turned inwards)....
That doesn't lead to weight loss, it usually leads to a binge.
YOu feel angry.
Angry at yourself...
which generally turns to name calling, which turns to self hate..
which turns to your favorite drug of choice to numb yourself out...
Or you are angry at your family.
You blame them for your being fat.
If only I didn't have to
I would be thin.
I would be healthy.
That's all Bullsh*t.
Getting angry about being fat..
or being in debt.
Of having your toilet overflow and leak into your garage because you didn't fix a handle..
It does nothing.
Now all there is to do is to clean it up.
And it will take a long time.
So you had best get a good attitude and be happy.
And fix the small things so they don't become big things..
That five pounds, so it doesn't turn into 100 lbs.
...that 300 dollar credit car so it doesn't turn into 3000...
And the handle on the toilet that sticks...so it doesn't turn into an all day nasty fest of cleaning toilet water.
