Every day that I do Pilates, (which is not every day) I begin with Sara Groves‘ song “Just Showed Up for My Own Life.” I love the lyrics… and if I were more talented, I would sing along. But, not so much so I just sweat through them.
Have you heard it?
As a kid, I did whatever I could to avoid eating Brussels sprouts. This was tough because my mom had a no-exception policy that each child had to eat each item on our dinner plates – at least one bite.
So, in order to avoid the inevitable for as long as I could, I ate the chicken first. I then slowly ate the rice – one grain at a time! But, eventually, there they sat – lonely and looming on my plate.
