Don't judge me based on some screwed up magazine reading algorithm I've devised. Judge me based on how sassy I am. But I digress.
Each month, the magazine lists 10 Thoughts On Whole Living. Often I rip out the page and post it at my desk for a bit. Here is June 2011's list:
- Rather than try to fix your body, focus on how you want it to feel.
- The mark of true confidence is the ability to look someone in the eye.
- Let the seasons guide your diet. The Earth grows what you need, when you need it.
- Respect your feet. They've mastered the art of staying grounded while moving forward.
- Take charge of your own reflection: stop letting the mirror win.
- Enlightenment doesn't always make a grand entrance. It slowly transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.
- Change happens somewhere between the acceptance of now and the anticipation of what's to come.
- Don't obsess over weight loss. Wellness is about making your life bigger, not smaller.
- Surprise yourself: push past your physical limits.
- Nothing connects you to who you are quite like the people who knew you when.
I do try to focus on how I feel. I have been making an effort to live and eat better. It is amazing to me how wonderful that feels! If I could just remember that feeling when I decide I must have a huge burger with fries and an ice cream sundae.
I try to push past my physical limits. Hell, I ran a marathon. That was WAY past my physical limits.
I've maimed or killed all the people who knew me when.
