Talking/Thinking versus Doing

Recently I reread some of my older posts from 2009 and early 2010. I sounded much wiser, more profound then (some of the time) than I do now. Words flowed much more easily and more poetically. I've been thinking about that...and the only thing that I thought of was it is much easier for me to write such profound things when I spend time thinking about them and talking about them. Now I spend my time doing things to help me lose weight. I don't think about strategies, I just do them.

I have a friend who is somewhat of a hoarder who has read about 20 books on organizing his stuff. But he hasn't actually DONE it. He could tell me what I should do about my clutter, how to make my bed, how I'm supposed to clean my house according to the professionals, but he doesn't do any of it. He has the knowledge not the action.

I think now I am in a phase of action. I had the I'm moving past that. I spend my time doing the stuff I know will get me in shape instead of thinking about or talking about things that I SHOULD be doing.

Just something to mull to Pilates and later a Massage!! WOOHOO!


  1. Amazing! It's wonderful to see where you have come. I feel like I can related. Years, I talked and thought I tried to loose weight, But the action is so simple. Isn't it weird the change of the state of mind.

    Enjoy your massage! You deserve it!

  2. Well, some times are times for words, and some are times for actions. ^^

  3. I have been trying to find your blog for awhile now and GLAD I finally did. Not sure what happened to the other link but anyhow... Enjoy your yoga AND your massage.
