Helping and loving others is hard work, maybe that’s why we choose the other option. Saying yes to others takes time, effort and if we are honest, a change in routine and some inconvenience too.
Yet this is the battle I’m in right now. To ‘unlearn’ my approach to life and the calling to which I am called. For me it’s mostly about not giving way to personality, selfishness or just plain laziness.
Some early observations…
- I need to get fitter.
- It will help get me fitter.
- It doesn’t need to be big stuff.
- To others it is big stuff.
- It needs to be more normal.
- It’s great fun too.
Join me on this ‘unlearn’ journey and share yours along the way. Don’t applaud me, it’s only what I should be doing anyway. I recognise many of you already live this way and I salute you. I’m merely playing catch up.
