a while back. She said a LOT of great stuff, and I highly recommend it. But the word that reached out and grabbed me the most was CONSISTENT.
I thought of all the times in my life I've "dieted". All the "tries", all the repeated efforts, programs, methods. Fail, try, fail, try, fail, try, ad nauseam.
If I had just picked one and been consistent, I would have been done with this thing EONS ago.
Out of curiosity, I looked at my own blog index and found I'd written about Consistency/Consistent 85 times!!!!!!!! EIGHTY FIVE!!
It was even my "theme" for 2011... sheesh...
My first reaction was... exasperation at myself!
My second was... sadness and embarrassment over all the wasted time.
My third was... I just shook my head, smiled sheepishly to myself, and decided to read each and every one of those posts. To see if there is anything helpful there for me. Because I still WANT to learn consistency.
It's not a matter of "need" to.
I WANT to.
And I hope that will make the difference.
In fact, I BELIEVE that WILL make a difference.
I want to Consistently DO, not just talk.
Talk is cheap... it's what I DO that will make the difference.
My book quote for today: "The true story of every person in this world is not the story you see, the external story. The true story of each person is the journey of his or her heart." --from The Sacred Romance, by Brent Curtis & John Eldredge
My verse for today: "Call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me."
My quote for today: "Consistency. Doing it day in and day out and not letting it be optional." --Chris Oursler, A Deliberate Life

The "numbers" do matter, since they are the result of Consistent good choices.
But it's not ALL about the numbers.
We are more than that... we are whole people!
