Well good morning and congratulations on making it to Friday. I must say, there is nothing like a good rant to get people thinking and talking. I appreciate or your feedback in the form of comments, emails and conversations. Thank you, Judy, for the correction on the test name!!! When I auto spell checked, the computer did it’s “own,” thing and I did not catch it! But more importantly thank you for explaining the difference between it and a traditional glucose tolerance test. For those of you who believe in the right to privacy, it’s not at all that I don’t agree. I do! However, I think when you promote and are passionate about something, and you put yourself in the public eye, you have a certain moralresponsibility to have good integrity. I can only use myself as an example and I think that it’s important for me to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. I honestly cannot really separate my private life from my “business,” because they are in many ways, one and the same. If I were to go out and get a tummy tuck and let my students and clients think that I earned those abs thru diet and exercise, but then decided several years later that I could make some money hooking up with the plastic surgeon and writing a book, I think that would be a terrible, terrible case of “misleading” my “people.”
That said, I guess I can only speak for myself and do what I feel is right for me. I have learned some big lessons about integrity and I always hope to keep those lessons in the forefront of my mind as I go through life. Doesn’t mean this peace and fitness chick can’t get on a rant sometimes! I did love ALL the feedback (and did have a lot of traffic thru the site!) and will respond to the private messages later today. Thank you and I will leave you with this quite simple quote by a very extraordinary man.
“When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.”
