Monday Moments of Zen: Kick Your Own Ass



"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."

~~Buddha

The quote says enough on its own... I don't feel the need to explain why I used it any further than this:
There are so few things that you can actually control in this life.
Do you know what you CAN control? You can control how you treat your own body and what you do to maintain it.
If you are unhealthy or unhappy with yourself, CHANGE.
The feeling that you get from making that change is something that I can never explain to you, you have to feel it on your own.
Once you do, as the quote above states, it cannot be taken from you. Not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

This particular statement has been helpful to me in weight loss efforts: There's no easy way, but there's the right way.
