"A university professor went to visit a famous Zen master. While the master quietly served tea, the professor talked about Zen. The master poured the visitor's cup to the brim, and then kept pouring. The professor watched the overflowing cup until he could no longer restrain himself. "It's overfull! No more will go in!" the professor blurted. "You are like this cup," the master replied, "How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup."
After 20 years of sluggishness, I am finally trying my hand out at this active healthy lifestyle deal. I've always wanted to be thinner, but I have used many excuses to keep me from acting on this desire.

A lot of it stems from the fact that I hate the feeling of being bad at something. Of course, everyone does! I had some major self confidence issues after high school too, I used to think that you had to be skinny to work out in public. But I wasn't skinny, so I wasn't "allowed". I'm trying to face down that self conscious nervousness, and allow myself to be a novice at something. And I'm trying to face down that feeling that I'm "not allowed" because EVERYBODY is allowed to act in a healthy way.

I am working hard to try and get rid of some of these things I used to tell myself. Because I love trying new things, and I love exercising and I love cooking healthy food. I'm working on being less self conscious in some ways, less of a know it all in other parts of my life and being more humble, being the empty cup.
