I realize I don’t have a consistent title formula for these follow ups. Consistency was never one of my strong points.
Reflection, however, usually is.
A wise wise wise man told me that it is always hardest to take your own advice. Why is that? Perhaps part of the reason is that you can’t just realize something one time and have it instantly ingrained in your system. You have to be aware of the change and then practice it. And the practice, the consistency, is my greatest struggle.
Luckily, I have a blog that memorializes my moments of realization so I can revisit them and work towards better practice of what I preach. Usually I am exploding with information and I want to act on it or share it with you all immediately and all at once.
Apparently that doesn’t work. Phooey.
That is why the WFL is all about tiny steps. Bit by bit, piece by piece, over and over and over until the practice becomes a happy new habit.
I’m re-reading my original Food for Thought series, steps 1 – 10. I thought there were ten, anyway, but I can only find six so far in my search history. That’s ok though, because I need to reflect and practice habits slowly. I wanted to share three articles I had previously written, but I’m only going to concentrate on two. It isn’t about a complete victory (when is it ever?), but it is a choice that moves me in the right direction. (It also gives me time to figure out what happened to posts #7-10). As long as we break it down into little choices that move us in the direction we want to go, we’ll all be fine.
