Tim McGraw has a new CD out named Emotional Traffic. One of the songs on it is "Better Than I Used To Be". It is about a man who had done a lot of things he isn't proud of but he is trying to improve. (for a woman, of course!)
I ain't no angel
I still got a few more dances with the devil
It reminds me of our diabetes path. We are working on getting healthier and having a positive attitude but as I have talked about before, we seem to still have a few dances with the devil left in us. It is hard to change a lifetime of habits and I refuse to feel guilty about our slip ups.(Okay, I try not to feel guilty)
But I'm cleaning up my act little by little
I'm getting there
While I was driving to the Lake this morning, I was thinking about habits and rewards. I was thinking that if I were a normal adult, I would think that a reward would be stopping at Starbucks on my way home. Unfortunately, I don't drink coffee. I wish I did. I also wish I drank beer. Both beverages seem like they have such a place in Americana. Instead, my reward for going to the Lake was a beautiful sunrise. Which is a reminder that not all rewards are food. I seem to need to be reminded of that.
I ain't as good as I'm gonna get
But I'm better than I used to be
Thanks for reading!
