Day Twenty Five - What I stand for
Thursday, March 25, 2010
Today's reflection about what I stand for gave me a lot to think about.
I have to assess what I stand for. I stand for all the the things a good citizen stands for - freedom, responsibility for self and others, respect, independence. Otherwise, I have not been asked to stand for something in a long time.
Currently, I am standing for myself. I am focused on getting myself healthy and fit. That takes time and responsibility. It is a worthwhile endeavor. If I take care of myself, I will not be a burden on others and dependent on an overstretched healthcare system. So while it sounds selfish to stand for myself, it does have reaching effects. I can give more to others and need less. I will have to expand on this thought in other blogs.
