Letter to Myself

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Dear Self,

I have some things to say to you, and I'm afraid they're not going to be very nice. For far too long I have allowed your convoluted fear of embarrassment prevent me from being myself. I've allowed you to convince me that I prefer to be lazy, sit in front of the computer or TV, and to eat unhealthy food.

Well the truth is that's not true! I am NOT that person. I like being active and healthy. I like the slight soreness I get after strength training or being a bit out of breath after cardio. I LOVE to run and dance. I wanted to run cross country in high school. I think it would be fun to join a zumba class. I really want to join the that conditioning/kickboxing class at the local MMA gym. THIS is who i really AM.

So I'm afraid this charade is over. I am no longer going to allow you to make me think I'm the ugly, stupid, fat, lazy person who has to change who she is just to feel better about myself. All I have to change is how I allow you to speak to me. And from now on, talk to me positively or forever hold your peace.

Sincerely,
Lana

    I can't tell you how inspiring your blog posts have been to me- I read everyone and feel like I know you.

    I have been fluttering on SP for a few years and never have DONE yet-
    You definitely provided the kick in the pants I need.
    Thank you so much!
