A weekend including sunny skies, disc golf, mountain biking AND my house is clean and laundry done? A very good weekend!
We were watching the Biggest Loser on our DVR and we starting to laugh at how much attitude and resistance some of the contestants were giving their trainers. Not in a mean way, more in an identification kind of way. “Don’t they realize the trainers are there to help them reach their goals, have so much more experience and success than they do, and only want the best for them?!”
But I realized that I do the same thing.
I complain about the things I don’t like, about the food plan or that don’t make sense to me, as if it or the creator of it is the enemy, when really it’s my own choices that have brought me to this point I’m mad at. As much as this is a disease, there are also habits I’ve formed that I know better, and now I’m having to undo them.
It lets off steam, yes, and then I get behind the thing I’m resisting.
I also realized that my anger serves a purpose. It gets me pumped up and fired up to take action, and do what needs to be done. As self defeating as it seems to make a fuss and complain, maybe it’s just the sparks that fly when the proverbial runner meets the road.
