I've been doing a lot of soul-searching lately, trying to find my mojo and discover why I've lost it in the first place. On days I don't blog, I often log on to read others that I follow. I guess I'm a creeper sometimes. One blog Jacksh*t, Gettin' Fit has a very inspirational page called Why I Do This Here. It is a portion of his blog devoted to his readers' reasons for wanting and seeking a healthier life. If you have a few minutes, you should hop on over to his blog and read/add one. I have been giving some thought to mine. Alot of people say their kids. That is a really ideal reason, and admirable if that is why. I think my reasons are much more selfish. Among the answers on my shortlist are these:
Because I love attention
Because Fat isn't very punk
Because I want him to regret not giving me a chance
Because excuses are the minions of apathy
Because old and fat doesn't work for me
Because breathing is one of my favorite pasttimes
Because I am tired of feeling invisible
Because I am tired of the look I get when my fitness-model-husband introduces me to someone
Because I am seriously tired of being asked when my baby is due
I could go on and on. As I was reading through a really old journal from more than a decade ago, I came across something that I wrote that truly woke me up, and that became my reason.
What's your reason?
