So I tapped about that boredom until "light" time. As I lay under the light, I looked up on my nook quotes on persevering. When I read the above quote I felt such a feeling of " OK, God, I hear You." Sometimes we just have to do what is required. I am required to stay the course on the red color diet for 8 more days. Boredom is just a part of life. I started with a passion for this diet-but along the way have developed a passion for getting healthy.
I also picked up "Allowing Your Success." by Terez Hartmann and ,of course, where I had left off reading was all about when times get hard to keep your BPI ( Big Picture Intention) in mind. I have a much bigger BPI than losing weight and even getting healthy. That BPI requires that I be able to stand for an hour or more and be physically stronger than I am. perhaps someday I'll talk about it and I will tell you about Terez's book when I am through with it.
The picture above was taken at my last garden about 15 years ago. When I read Churchill's quote I thought about this suburban garden. It was a "restricted " neighborhood with rules about how you landscape, I learned the hard way. No vines on fences. Gardens need boundaries if coming down to the street ( hence the fence).
For Churchill, " I did my best" wouldn't cut it when his country, indeed the world's very life was on the line. He had to do what was required. For my garden, "my best" was not what the neighborhood required if I didn't want to see the cops at my door again. Fence went up and vines came down. For me, " well I already lost 18 pds and counting," doesn't cut it. I made a commitment to myself to finish the whole 45 days.
As Terez said If I want to be successful I have to keep my passion for my Big Picture Intention in mind.
