Hi, lovely SparkPeople! u all are wonderful...

I'm okay, just been kinda down the last few days, struggling with all my lol struggles... Mostly I'm getting deep into my own personal thoughts about my body and self. It is vey enlightening, not easy... and I'm slowly, slowwwwwwwwwwwwly learrning to be both kind and honest with myself.

In the past it's been too easy to hide certain ugly truths from myself and from others, and at the same time all too easy to well, beat myself up. y'know?

Well, that's all for today, I feel sure tomorrow my energy will be better.

Hugs & Encouragement to all (including to myself! ROTFL) emoticon

    Why is it that we are always better at forgiving others, or being kind to others, than ourselves??? I think that is basic human nature. We're always hardest on ourselves. On our 50+ team, we have a thread called "Blessings and Challenges". You might want to do this, just on your own, in a journal or something. Everyday record one blessing and one challenge, and just deal with that. It has really helped me not get overwelmed, or really to focus on what is important, and at the same time appreciate the good things going on.

Hope you feel better today, but if you don't, that's okay too. Be gentle with yourself.

    When you start really being kind to yourself there is a big shift that happens. I've been so much happier. Contented, even. I love my spark journey. I'm doing just fine. I take it one day at a time and you know what? What is done is done...and tomorrow is another bright day. I hope you have a great weekend...and feel better. Give yourself another hug, too.

    I have been told that I also beat myself up all the time. I go to yoga and do more excersizes then before, but maybe it is the lack of awareness, but I am not seeing the changes. I would have thought that there would be more changes since I have been going to yoga for a little over a year. Isn't this enough time to be aware of what improvements there are?
