Having It All…


Well…Bertha’s…on a roll with these limiting beliefs…I can barely say anything without her yelling…gotcha

So…you think I’d keep my mouth shut…but…oh…no…I keep talking…saying things like…well…you can’t have everything

She challenged me…why not

Hmmm…well…ummm…I don’t know…hmmm…because…they said so

Then she reminded me of one of her favorite sayings…whenever I begin a sentence with…they say…I stop and ask myself…what I say

She asked me…why…I couldn’t have both…love and money…health and money…perfect body size and money…a wonderful career that I love and money…or…any combination of them…

Honestly…I don’t know why I can’t…I guess I never realized that it was a multiple choice exam…and I could choose…D…all of the above…I honestly believed that I had to choose…one of the above…and…let the others go…

Funny thing is…I wasn’t even aware that I believed that…but…as I think back…when one area of my life was going well…the others would tend to get in the hand basket…

So…today…Bertha is challenging me…to change that belief…to list all of the things I want in life…and…say…I can have all that…and…a bag of chips…and…I’ll still be at my ideal weight

Sounds like time for the contemplation chair…
