Who do you want to be? Do you want to be that person who is glued to the TV, preferring the magical realm of football, sitcoms, and soaps to the real world passing you by? Do you want to be the person whose life is so defined by the schedule of work and other duties that there is no time for the real you? Do you want to be the Perfectionist who will not try anything unless assured that it can be accomplished perfectly the first time? Do you want to please others all the time, placing yourself at the bottom of your own To-Do list?
Of, are you important enough to be the You You Want To Be? That person is a person who takes care of him/herself. That person takes time our of a busy schedule to exercise, walk, work out, and relax. That person has friends and family who encourage her/him to do exactly that - place her/himself at the top of the list and take care to be the 'true' person.
Take a few moments in the hustle and bustle of the holidays to be the You You Want To Be. If that means dinner is a few minutes late, the house is a little less clean, or work is 'deserted' a few minutes early - then so be it! In the long run (and not very long, mind you) the results will demonstrate that the You You Want To Be is far better at handling all the chores, responsibilities, and work if the You You Want To Be allows her/himself the time and importance to be that Person.
Remember my 100% GUARANTEE. Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you'll get back 100% of your former life - your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude. You can trust the information you find here. It's from a dedicated walker. Trust me and your life will get better! I promise.
