Accentuating the Positive (and Eliminating the Negative)
As the song goes, I am going to start accentuating the positive. Sorry if that song gets stuck in your head. Of course if you have no idea what I'm talking about then you're safe. But you could always look for it on YouTube. I realize a lot of my writing is complaining. That's what blogs are for. In good times, in bad times, my blog will be on my side for evermore. And after that obscure reference I also realize, I am doing the thing some label as insanity and/or addiction. That is, doing something over and over and hoping for a different result. I know I cannot eat, let's just say a lot, and hope to lose weight. I also cannot lose weight without exercise. It is what it is and that is all. But along this road I have become increasingly harsh to myself. I suppose it's punishment for being here in the first place. Even though I can't go back in time and change it because I'm not Marty McFly (and yes, there are a lot of out of the blue 80s references today). All I can do is keep doing what I know I need to do. There will be setbacks. And there will be victories. But I cannot keep on beating myself up. So for the next month (possibly beyond) I will only write positive things on this, my newly designed carefree blog. I will be giving myself props all month long. Join me if you will.
