So I'm driving around this morning trying to figure out how to get my act together and keep it together. Dr. Laura was playing on the radio but I was only half listening, I was way too deep in my own problems to pay attention to someone else's. Then, this lady came on the phone who was overweight and wanted to lose it and hadn't for years and blah, blah, blah...... What she said wasn't important but what Dr. Laura said was. She was saying how being overweight was this lady's comfort zone and as long as she was comfortable she wouldn't lose any weight. I've said the exact same thing to myself. I'm relatively happy where I am and that makes it hard to change.
Then Dr. Laura told a story. It's like people are living in a house with no bathroom. There are slits in the floor about 3" wide, just enough room for them too poop through. They will go on living there until the poop gets too high. She then asked this lady what would make the poop too high. That really struck me (yeah, I know, the strangest things resonate with me). Apparently the poop isn't high enough for me. Well, I'm going to make the poop high enough. I have to pile up the things that bother me and make the poop high enough so I'll do something. So here is some of the poop:
- I'm more tired though I'm working less
- My clothes don't feel as comfortable
- There are clothes I can't wear
- I don't have a lot of energy
E.L. over at Stop.Kidding.Yourself. had a great line in his post yesterday. The very last line of the post says:
So stop knowing and start doing.
Ummm.....perfect timing, thanks E.L.
