How many times have you had the thought…
"When I lose the weight I’ll…"
Boy that was a favorite of mine. I barely SAID it as it as I wouldn’t dare let people know that’s how I felt. It was something that just lived deep inside me.
When I lose the weight I’ll be able to wear that.
When I lose the weight I’ll go to the gym.
When I lose the weight I’ll be more confident.
When I lose the weight I’ll dance at weddings.
When I lose the weight I’ll enjoy myself on the beach.
When I lose the weight my life will REALLY begin.
What a bunch of bull cocky.
For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. ~Fr.
