Gratitude, The Challenge....



Is it just me or does everyone get a little crazy around the holidays? Eating to much, drinking to much, staying out to late? Getting out of routines? I find that it is just the mere thought of having multiple days off, free time, that’s not really free because we feel obligated to spend it with people we have not seen in a while, the stress of entertaining, cooking, preparing and decorating can be a bit overwhelming. Granted, the latter part of all this I am not participating in this year. Yes, I will not be entertaining, cooking, preparing or decorating this year. I have never been a huge fan of all these things. I am not Scrooge but I do feel Christmas is more commercial than it needs to be. Year after year people over spend buying gifts people do not need, want or use. They decorate for people they do not even know. They spend time with people they do not really like. All because that’s what they have always done. Traditions, expectations… I have degreased. Even with all these things removed from my Christmas Holidays, I found myself over the weekend sharing to many Cajun po boys and to many Mimosa’s. A combination that my body hates, bread and orange juice… So we get off track and we start over on Monday with the discipline that makes us feel good in the long run, not just in that moment. We eat the apples and grapes. We run the mile, go to class, fill up with inspiration in order to have a better mind body and soul. Discipline is hard, every day sometimes every minute. Stay focused on what is really important.
