Carrying extra weight
Some days I can't decided which is more difficult:
motivating myself or motivating others.
Some days I wish I could control what goes into other people's mouths,
not just mine.
Some days I wish I could make other people move, jump, run and sweat.
Some days I'm not a very good example of eating and drinking healthfully...
or of moving my own body....
and it weighs on me...
and I wonder: can I only motivate others to do what I already do perfectly?
Which I don't.
Am I the kettle calling the pot black?
Why do I take on the yoke of Chief Motivator anyway?
Then I think, what would our Savior do?
He did not judge others.
He did not weigh their character by their calorie count
or measure their walk with a pedometer.
He basically said "Love."
And we all know that Love starts with "patient and kind."
Today, I am striving for patient and kind.
