Applying myself

Yesterday, I simply forgot to add a musing of my own.  Sometimes it takes a series of light bulb moments to get a person going.  I wonder why it took so long.  Why does it take a light bulb moment?  Why couldn't I have figured it out on my own?  Light bulb moments expose my weaknesses but it emphasizes my strengths as well.

I don't take the time to be thankful.  This is concerning my weight.  I have taken it all for granted.  I didn't lose or gain weight lately.  I am at a plateau.  I became frustrated and now it is time for me to do something about it.  I can eat less and exercise more.  How do I apply it to my situation?

That is the question: how do I appy it to my situation?  Why didn't I think of that before?  I have all of this information yet I failed to fully apply it to my situation.  All I had to do was exercise more and eat less.  I became frustrated because of something simple.  It makes me wonder why it is so difficult for me to apply myself.

Is it laziness?  Why is it so hard?  I need wisdom and guidance.  The answer is it is all in the mind.  All I have to do is exercise more, eat less, and keep it simple.  How to keep it simple is all in the mindset.  Why do I have to make things so hard on myself?  Is life always a set of challenges?  Life isn't an easy hard.  I have learn to do what is hard.  The other answer is I need to be mindful and not go through the motions.  I have to control not let anything control me.  A person loses their own sense of self and their own power doing those things.  Those are the lessons I learned yesterday and that is the lesson I will continue to learn today.
