Very well said, Roberta. If we are to treat it as a journey we can expect twists, turns and potholes in the road. We're emotional and instinctive creatures at the core, no matter how rational we become and we should take that rationality and apply it to making sense of the emotional side. And this means acknowledging that we're not always going to be perfect in our behaviors and we just need to come to terms of it and respond accordingly.
Like yesterday I decided to celebrate my ridiculously low C-reactive protein levels by starting smoking. I honestly wasn't expecting that one. My rationalization was that I needed at least one bad habit. Dumb. right? Now I have to go through quitting smoking. If we look at these as challenges on the road, perhaps hurdles or steep hills instead of looking at them as tripping and falling the experience will be more positive and we will get back on track quicker.
