(the view across from my reading corner in my kitchen)
One of the smartest things I have heard in a long time
was a line of dialogue in The Iron Lady with Meryl Streep as
To paraphrase liberally, in a scene where her doctor asks her how she feels,
she responds that
too much attention is given to how we feel rather than what we think.
(pause… let that sink in…and now hang on to your seat)
I decided (using thinking rather than feeling)
when I heard that,
that how I feel may not always be
what is best for me if I gave it rational thought.
I don’t feel like exercising.
I don’t feel like cleaning out the utility room.
I don’t feel like cooking supper.
I don’t feel like _______________.
I think I better.
