A couple +1s ago, we hung out with Mister Rogers in his barrelful of songs.
Today I want to hop in the pool with him and then do something extra special.
First, some more wisdom fromThe World According to Mister Rogers.
Fred tells us:“Ilike to swim, but there are some days I just don’t feel much like doing it—but I do it anyway! I know it’s good for me and I like to keep my promises. That’s one of my disciplines. And it’s a good feeling after you’ve tried and done something well. Inside you think,‘I’vekept at this and I’ve really learned it—not by magic, but by my own work.’”
Of course, I LOVE the fact that Fred swims every day. Whether he (insert whiney voice)feels like it or not. He knows it’s good for him and he likes to keep his promises.
See ya in the pool!
But it’s not his discipline to swim every day that I want to talk about Today.
It’s what he does AFTER he gets out of the pool.
He steps on the scale.
And what does it say?
When did it say that?
Basically EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! of his adult life.
Do you know WHY he was so enamored with his scale saying“143”?
