i've told my kids a lot
that life is sometimes about doing things
that we don't really WANT to do.
in fact - i tell them - that most of my day
is spent like this.
but what matters really is our attitude.
i decided that i hate going to the gym -
or working out at all.
it's sweaty -
but i've told my kids that sometimes
the things you do when you don't really want to -
are the things that
you are so glad you made the effort for.
