This weekend’s quote is from Henry David Thoreau…
Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.
I LOVE this! Not because I was open enough to hear and learn from it but rather because it describes how I did find success. Hind site is always 20/20.
Let me briefly explain.
As I describe in my story, I wanted to be thin for a long time but it wasn’t until I became inspired by my new born son to get healthy. It took that little bundle of joy to change my perspective.
I guess you can say I became too busy to be skinny. It just wasn’t a focus anymore. I was more concerned with being a good example for him, finding active things for my family to do and figuring out how to get us to eat healthier. Not to mention I was just busy with a new born on my hands and a job to return to!
When I stopped focusing on being skinny, I started to focus on being healthy and then, to my surprise, I actually found “skinniness”. I guess that sums up my new tag line pretty well….
