There was a commercial during the Super Bowl that has been nagging my brain. I can not tell you what was being sold. I can tell you what sticks in my mind is the image of a man gazing out a window and "seeing" his inner hero - a child in a Superman cape.
I have been thinking about inner heros. What is mine? Why? What is it that my inner hero does?
My inner hero is the thing that makes me the best me that I can be. I was not meant to be a fat blob. I was supposed to be an active creature. My inner hero is the thing that keeps me going when the scale goes up, emotions are on the roller coaster, the negative scripts from my past jump to the forefront.
My inner hero keeps me looking at the real me...not just the face I used to put out for others and hide my pain.
My inner hero holds me in a gentle embrace when I feel there is no one around to hear my cries.
I will be successful in this journey towards health as I am actively listening to my inner hero today.
I have gone from the tin can communication to a direct line and keeping it going every day.
I listened to my inner hero when I quit smoking.
I can and will listen to my inner hero today in this journey.
