10 Ways To Learn From Mistakes

Need2behealthy is a blog where I can journal about becoming healthy, to include physically, emotionally, and every other way that you can thing of.  I read this article on Belief.net and thought that it would make a great little series, especially since it has been so long since I have done one.

Tip #3
Best-vs-Good
Don’t settle for what’s good and miss out on God’s best for your life. We've all done it but learn to stick to your standards and don’t let up for anyone.
I think that this is a difficult one for a lot of people.  See it is in our nature to want to be liked by everyone or even some, which means, that here or there in our lifetime we compromise our standards, which is not cool at all.  Lord knows I have settled especially in my relationships.  If you believe in God and you know, feel believe, and have faith that he is going to provide you with what is the best for your life than we as his children should stick to the standards that he has implemented for us.  It's just really that simple.



It's a struggle every day......I really wish it could be easier

Yesterday was a true struggle for me.  I was hungry and didn't want a shake but wanted something pretty hearty and bad for me like a Hamburger or chicken sandwich from Burger King so I decided I was going to get it.   My daughter is sick so she asked me to go and purchase her some Thai soup which I did.  I left the Thai soup place and headed towards Burger King.  Now on the way to getting her Thai Soup I was battling with myself do I want Burger King or do I want Taco Bell.  And then something hit me.  What are you doing?  Neither one should be purchased.  You have to change your life or it will never get better.

See I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.  How many years have I said this on this blog alone?  But today I'm happy to report that the struggle yesterday did not beat me.  I went to Walmart purchased myself a roasted chicken and came home and fixed me a chicken salad.

I beat the struggle yesterday and I can't even tell you.  How proud of myself I am!!  One hour at a time, One day at a time.....  It's all I can do.

Tip #2
 Where's Your Peace?
Where there is wisdom there is peace. One way to avoid repeating the same mistake is to follow your peace.

My brother used to tell me "you can't put a price on peace of mind" .  That always stuck with me and as a result really helps me when I think about going down a rabbit whole that I have visited many many times.

Day 6......I'm starting all over again

So because I had such great results last year with the Nutri Bullet smoothies, my daughter and I decided that we would start it all over again.  So I am now on Day 6 and I feel amazing.  If I could just get rid of the pain in my legs, it would be so much easier.

Here are a few diary pics of my 6th day of smoothies.  This smoothie consisted of kale, berries, mango, banana, and almond milk.  Absolutely delicious!!!
