Weekend Quote: Live Your Life Like

Posted Nov 09 2012 3:16pm

Those be my boys. :) Not that you didn’t know if you’ve read my blog for more than a minute. I love my kids and it’s kind of hard not to show it. They are a part of everything I do.

Everything changed once I became a mom. It was the experience of pregnancy, child birth, and nursing that made me realized how unhealthy and cruel I was treating myself and my body. Diet after diet. Starving. Binging. Popping pills. All in the name of getting skinny. For what? For who?

I know not everyone who is reading is a parent, but I think this quote is too good not to share.

"Live your life in the manner that you would like your kids to live theirs." -Michael Levine

When I first read it I immediately thought about how I eat and how I want my kids to eat. I can’t help it. I’m wired to think about food, but then I started realizing how much more this quote encompasses.

I want my boys to be…

healthy,
happy,
kind,
confident,
strong,
active,
curious,
patient,
determined,
friendly,
fit,
optimistic,
independent,
sympathetic,
practical,
resourceful,
reliable,
honest,
brave,
sincere,
loved.

I can take care of that last one, but the rest I guess I’m gonna have to teach by example, huh?
