This being my birthday weekend, and having reached an age well beyond that which I ever thought I would attain, and having fought many a battle with myself about some of my weaknesses, I’ve come to a conclusion: there are certain things in our lives we will always want. If those things aren’t too terrible for us, and don’t harm anyone else, instead of trying to paddle upstream for the rest of our lives, it may be more beneficial to give in. In fact, we can even use an indulgence or weakness to reward ourselves for a job well done.
I didn’t say I would give up completely at trying to overcome this weakness, but sometimes we just have to recognize the amount of effort put forth vs. the benefit gained. I used to feel guilty, but now I will celebrate my weakness by indulging on my birthday.
What’s your weakness? Can you change it? Improve your track record in overcoming it? Or is it better to just Celebrate Your Weakness?
Here’s to celebrating the little things in life that make us so happy!
Supporting you in your weakness,
