Hypocrisy. We’ve all been guilty of it at some point. Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, published an article about this subject yesterday. He’s a politician for sure, but he has some valid points at the end and invited the readers to be the change for what they want the world to be. Lead by example.
I am always harping to my children about lifestyle choices…diet, exercise, sleep. They did notice my diet changes this past year has had a positive impact on my demeanor. When mom is happy, everyone is happy. But am I really doing what I’ve been telling them to do? I walk a lot, but have run very little in the past 8 months. So I laced up my new Saucony’s before dinner yesterday and went out with my running buddy, Deke the Chocolate Lab. It felt great and all was right with the world.
Here’s the link to Mr. Booker’s article; hope it encourages you to lead by example as well.
And Happy New Year!
