Never too late to start
Today was a good day as "Ice Cube" raps. I loved those words and I still do. Well, today was really a good day. To me, a good day is a day where I can define freedom from worry, fear, and doubt. The troubles and cares of this life didn't overtake me. This is real good because I tend to overwhelm myself quite easily. I have taken the past hour reflecting on this past night with other blogs. I tend to put myself too low. Sometimes I wonder if I make too many lofty goals or if I don't make them lofty enough. I realize that specific and realistic are the way to go. When it comes to weight loss so is low and slow. I have realized that even the best laid plans fail and the easiest plans falter sometimes. That is how it usually is with me. I start things off well, then I falter. Okay, then I quit. I realize that the black and white thinking that I have has not served me well. I do wonder though if there are really shades of grey. I realize that while I don't believe in moral shades of grey, I realize that that may be the case with weight loss. I also realize that I tend to excuse myself when or rather, procrastinate when it comes to this area as well. I believe that it stems to having low self-esteem and the issues that I have faced. Now at my age, it is never too late to start conquering those issues.
