My "me" philosophy

Guest
I'm being inspired by the new Curves commercials, that feature women confessing about how they're
being selfish and taking time out for themselves etc. So this is my version!

It has long been established that we currently live in a fast-food society. Not only has this
affected the quality (and quantity!) of the food we eat, but also how we've come to expect
everything NOW. It's no longer good enough to wait a whole day for that slice of fresh bread when
you can bake a whole loaf in 2 hours. Heck even 2 hours seems long now!

Well I'm sick and tired of being rushed. I *deserve* to have time spent on me. And in this fast-food
society, if I have a choice (and I do!) then instead of being a hamburger well dammit I'm going to
be filet mignon. Sure it's more work, and it takes longer, but it's worth it!

I *could* lose weight the quick and easy way, but that's all I'd be doing - losing weight. I
wouldn't be getting healthy, or fit. I wouldn't be learning a new way of eating and living to
maintain that weight loss. I'd just be going for the hamburger of life. I'm not a McPerson. Instead
I'm chosing to take the time to do it right, to learn what's contributed to my weight gain and how
to make sure it doesn't happen again. I'm chosing the filet mignon. Because I deserve it.

What a great way of putting it, Amberle! I 'm with you there, but being a vegetarian I ' d rather
not choose for the filet mignon ;-) Let 's say I go for the home-made bread... Indeed I 'd rather
have quality than speed in this whole process.

I think more people should use the "me" philosophy! Only by taking care of yourself, can you do
anything for anyone else. AND if you don't put yourself first, someone else might just have to end
up caring for you! Give yourself time including quiet time as this is necessary to heal the spirit
during rough times. Elaine K

Too right! With hamburger life, you get 'never mind the quality, feel the width!' With real life you
get less width, more quality, and look at the increased yardage!
