“Pick the weeds, but keep the flowers.” – Kelly Clarkson
This morning, I picked the weeds. In the metaphoric garden of life, taxes are proverbial weeds. I completed my taxes. I do not know if the act of preparing tax forms falls under the category of wellness. However, I can tell you the peace of mind I have knowing they are done is overwhelmingly positive. Now, the flowers can grow!
Tomorrow, I return to the digital scale. I hope I will see a weight loss, or the metaphoric weeds I have plucked alongside the path of my journey. The interesting thing to note is that I will not be devastated with a gain. In fact, I will be more motivated to try harder. I know I did everything I could this week to have great results. I am happier. I am healthier. And to be honest, I like who I am and who I am becoming more. The scale is not my worst enemy. I am.
