I don't know...

Friday, July 21, 2017

I don't know much. My dad always says that you can tell a Norwegian, but you can't tell 'me much. He says that to harass my mother, who is 100% Norwegian. I am 3/4 so I can you can't tell me much 3/4 of the time. I am not really sure why I feel the need to write about that today, but I think it's because I continue to spend much of time worrying about others and what they think of me. I am realizing that while I might not know a lot, I have some things figured out. I know that holding my son accountable is critical, making him do chores and develop a work ethic is important. I know that holding him responsible for his behavior is essential to who he will be as an adult. If I hand him everything, how will he learn the value of the work it took to earn it? We are fortunate to be able to give him a lot. Maybe not trips to Europe but... But I hope that at the end of the day, what he walks away with, is that EVERYONE deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, that he is responsible for the words that exit his mouth, and to be aware of those around him and that the world does not spin on and around for his pleasure. I think we are doing OK with that. And as for me, I cannot compare my weight loss journey with any one else. I prepare our meals, I have a finite amount of time to work out and I hope that in the end, I fully appreciate the effort and changes that it took me to get to where I want to be.
