Grab a fork and dig in.
What if. Yes, what if you didn’t know how to measure?
Would you miss knowing your weekly running mileage? Your pace? Your PR’s and your PB? Not if you didn’t know it. You’d run to run. You’d run because you can. You’d run because you enjoy the movement, the feeling, the zoning out, the scenery, and the time alone or with others.
What if you couldn’t measure ingredients? Would you throw everything together and hope for the best? No, you’d probably taste more real food. Keep simple and savor the simple things.
What if you couldn’t measure your height, weight, body fat, etc. Would you know if you were healthy? I think being healthy starts from within.
What if you couldn’t measure success by money or fame. Would you be successful? Yes, because success doesn’t define you. It’s often overcoming adversity that does. Am I right?
What if you couldn’t measure up? What if you couldn’t measure up to someone else’s gifts, their talents, their strengths? Well, thank GOD we really can’t, and thank GOD we don’t have to.
What if we replaced the word measure with the word value?
I think we’d all spend more time VALUING our health, our time, our strengths, our weaknesses, our loved ones, and even the food we eat.
Am I working on this? You better believe it! Do I still struggle, yes of course. But our worth, our value, is more than a feeling. It’s a gift. Might as well accept it and cherish it!
FOOD for THOUGHT WIAW Diary complete!
Now, what’s for dessert? Maybe chocolate covered confessions? Just kidding
What do you VALUE?
