Retraction: I Screwed Up My Transcendentalists
For those of you who are even dorkier than me (and I mean that as a sincere compliment since I dig dorks), I erroneously attributed a beautiful quote to Henry David Thoreau that was actually written by Ralph Waldo Emerson [photo, right] a while back. I know- heresy! Carelessness! So, in the interest of accuracy, here's the amended post.
In the interest of entertainment, on the other hand, a running [and writer] pal of mine crafted his own witty remarks recently, when I couldn't accompany him on a jog. The following day, I jovially inquired, "How was your run?" This was his curt response via email:
"I'm a fat slug. I got a pizza instead. I blame you."
I told you he was witty . . . I share this with you because I find it thoroughly entertaining and thought you might too. For all the helpful wellness insight I try to provide people, I apparently also (unwittingly) influence them to skip healthful activities and opt for junk food instead. Feel free to blame your own health-related shortcomings on Om Gal as well;-) It's the least I can do.
All kidding aside, if you have a wellness gripe to share, post a comment, here! What impedes your workout, yoga practice, or nutrition plan (real, imagined, or hyperbole)? Who knows- perhaps the process of writing it down will help you turn the corner and adjust the behavior.
