Do me a favor and don't bother TRYING.
You either DO or you DON'T.
-Unknown guest on the Oprah show - episode about the 'Secret'.
Seriously!! This is my favorite quote. It may seem sharp or harsh but it really is the stone cold truth. When your friends invite you out and you say you will 'TRY' to make it...are you really going? When you say you will 'TRY' to eat more fruit and veggies...are you really going to? When you say you will 'TRY' to go to the gym...are you really planning to go?
The truth is that 'trying' leaves the door wide open for failing. We CHOOSE yes or no many times every day. We CHOOSE to do or not to do. We CHOOSE to act or not to act. We choose to say yes or to say no. AND....it's OK either way! I am not saying we can't say no. What I am trying to say is that we must accept that our actions are based on CHOICES that we make each and every day.
Thank you for CHOOSING to suffer through my Wednesday rant:) Carry on!
