but it is ....MARCH......

Saturday, March 02, 2013

We own our own business...and we have learned to say HI or HELLO when greeting customers. Gone are the days of asking, "How are you?" Trust me....you hear how people are whether you really want to or not. After 12 hours of how everyone is.....we get down and become slightly negative without meaning too. YET.....people still seem to have the need to.....not look at the bright side of life.

Today....so many complained that it was COLD for March. They are tired of Winter and want Spring. I tried to be positive.....and replied, "But it is MARCH!" Naturally, many scowled that Winter is not over yet and we are probably due for some more snow and cold temps.

I realized that when Summer comes......these same people will complain that it is TOO HOT.

I think it comes naturally for most to complain about what it is and what is not then to enjoy the moment...the time.

Weight loss can be like that. So many times.....people say....I have lost 10 pounds, but I have 10 more to go. Okay....what is wrong with NOW? Now is great! Now is fun! Why not enjoy life as we go thru it? Let's celebrate NOW and not worry so about the future.

Instead of...when I lose weight...I am going to do this or that....why not do it now?

We tend to make rules and concessions for the future when we think it will be perfect because then we will be happy....or happier. We need to be happy now...content with what we are given and what we are working towards.....basically enjoy life. Enjoy the ride and what we are doing.

It is MARCH after all............

    OK Mary, after just stepping on the scale this morning, SO NOT GOOD! I need to stop and think about what you said above. Need to get over the past and not being where I want to be and move on to today.

    THANK YOU!

    Mary... emoticon I needed this!

    You know me well enough to know that I am not really a negative person. And I too, hate people who do not see the moment they are in NOW.
    After chatting with you last evening on Facebook and then reading this~~I see that I was becoming ONE OF THEM~LOL

    I am not ready to throw in the towel on WW's and I think I will be okay...

    Mostly...due to people like YOU!

    I am surprised that people are honest (in a negative way) when you ask how they are. If someone asks me that, I always say I am fine because, really, the people asking don't want to know (as you have said), so it's just a roundabout way of saying hello.

    I do definitely agree that we should celebrate because it is MARCH! February (clearly the longest month in the year) is gone! Woohoo!
