Wearing The Boss's Jeans and Staying On Track Regardless of Circumstances
As I write this blog I'm wearing a size I haven't been able to wear since I was fifteen years old. I'm wearing size 44 jeans! Size 44!!!! What? ME? Size 44. That doesn't even look or sound right! I knew the 46 Levis were starting to get loose, I even started using a belt with them, but I hadn't even tried these 44's yet, because it just seemed impossible. There's no such thing as impossible anymore. 44's! Irene took one look and joked that I wasn't allowed to wear them in public! Remember me writing about these jeans ninety-four days ago? Let's go to the archives shall we? Here's an excerpt of Day 200: My boss, the owner of Team Radio, gave me several pair of pants that I can't wear yet, but give me a little while. Thank you kind sir! He's lost enough to not need them anymore, and when I do get into them in the next month or two it'll be an amazing day. They're size 44's. I'll get there in not long! They look so tiny to me, much like the 48's do, and I can wear the 48's! These big rewards along the way of this journey are so amazing, it's truly a blessing every day. And Mr. Blue Blazes, you're looking fantastic! And I'm not just saying that because you hold my broadcasting career in your hands, you really do look great, everybody is noticing my friend, not just employees looking to compliment the boss. Thanks for the pants, I'll wear them proudly into your office one day soon. Wow, I was really optimistic about “the next month or two,” in reality it took 94 days. But remember---time doesn't matter, because I'm getting there! Tomorrow will be that day I proudly waltz into his office wearing his jeans! They're nice too. So these are the kind of jeans an owner of a broadcasting empire wears, hmm, I think they're designer jeans. Sweet. I don't care from where they came, all I know is they fit! I'm so happy right now! I mean, they fit nicely. Not too tight, just perfect.
Staying on track in a solid way no matter what circumstances surface is something that is extremely important. Today: The van broke down. Our air conditioner for our house stopped working. And then our fridge and freezer stopped working. We'll need to summon three different repair technicians tomorrow morning. All of our food is thawed and spoiling. Talk about stressful and expensive. But it will not get me down. It will not shake my resolve. It'll try real hard, but it will not win. I refuse to let it beat me! I never thought I would ever get to that place. It's a place where our eating and exercising behaviors are not effected by daily emotions, setbacks, sorrows, or even celebrations. It's a place where we're on level at all times. In order to be consistent I had to find this place fast. Thank goodness I did.
I posted the longest blog in the history of this blog for Saturday's post. It was a small book. If you haven't had a chance to read, I hope you will. It was an awesome day of “wow” reactions. In a sharp contrast to yesterday's really long post, this one might be one of the shortest. It's getting late and I need rest. Goodnight and...
