I am so tired of fitspiration posters with women with six packs. Who cares if you have a six pack or not. A six pack is not necessarily an indicator of health. Don't you remember the battle over skinny models and girls all thinking they have to be skinny? Well, now the new "fad" is a six pack. Yes, I'll admit that I would love to have a six pack. I don't have one. That doesn't mean that I am not healthy. I know I am healthy and I think I am pretty dang good looking if I can say so myself--one pack and all.
Now to my next item of business. I have been thinking about this quote a lot lately:
"If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find and excuse."
Well, I am guessing that six pack is not as important to me as cupcakes! Seriously, I have thought about this quote and relationships. I think that we find a way to stay in contact with people that are important to us. I'm not just talking about being friends on Facebook contact but genuine contact. Rather it is randomly calling or checking on a person to check on them or actually having "real" time with that person. I think of all the people I've meet. I only stay in contact with a small percentage of them. Guess I know who is important enough to me to make the effort. Life is about choices, we choose who we want in our lives. On the other hand, people have to choose to let us in their lives. I could go deeper and further with this one but I will just say that I don't beg to be part of anyone's life or to have any type of relationship with anyone that doesn't put forth the effort to have a relationship with me.
The quote also has me thinking about life goals and dreams. There are things I say I want to do, and I really do want to do them, but I am not doing them. Guess they are just not important enough to me to be a priority.
Last little ramble: I went to the single's branch today. I didn't go with any intention of meeting "the one" or whatever you want to call it. (I know that there is no "the one" by the way...don't get me started on that.) I simply went because I am bored and I wanted to meet new people. Still, I hate how it is sometimes treated like a meat market. I am not there to "get on anyone." I won't say it wouldn't be a perk though. I just think people should be treated as people and that includes not treating the branch like a meat market.
There, I'm done...with all that I am going to allow myself to say out loud. Sweet Dreams.
