Time for me to start self analysing again. Today's vulnerability that I shall be examining is what I think is a relatively new facet of my personality - selfishness. I might be wrong, but I don't think I've ever been particularly selfish in years gone by. However, of late, I've found myself thinking that I have behaved in a selfish way. I hate myself for being that way.
I have just done a quick search for selfishness, and someone's blog came up in the results. I read it, and found it very interesting. The blog lists seven characteristics that make up a good relationship, and here they are:-
You know what, though - I'm getting tired of my own blog entries at the moment. I'm always coming on here full of either fury or regret. I totally need to get a grip and take a long hard look at what I have in my life. A genuinely stunning wife, who is my best friend. Beautiful children who bring me such pleasure I can't begin to find the words. A job that I enjoy doing (even though it makes me excessively tired), and the love of my family. I am very very lucky, and I really want to be positive in life using the seven characteristics listed above to make my life, and that of my family, better.
I am going to use this opportunity to make a commitment to do something. This commitment is to myself, but publishing on here should give me the impetus to actually do it, instead of it staying in my head on the list of "Things I'd Like To Do". I weigh 14 stones, and I want to weigh 13. I am going to exercise regularly in order to lose 1 stone. It feels good to type this. I look forward to waving goodbye to the extra stone.
I'm off to drink caffeine and research exercises.
Take care of yourself, and be happy! Smile at a stranger, and when one smiles back at you - enjoy the feeling.
