The 2nd day of the rest of my life
Saturday, March 17, 2012
I got back on my (stationary) bicycle today. Two days in a row! Way to go me!
For me, exercising at the moment is an exercise in self-love. An affirmation, that I am worthy of taking care of myself.
Right now, I'm not changing my diet (much). Although I am making a conscious decision to try and avoid the potato chips when I go shopping, reminding myself that I do not need to eat them as a way to love myself...that it is far more loving to refrain from eating the chips.
It is difficult for me to acknowledge my achievements, to give myself encouragement and praise. If I treated anyone else the way that I treated myself I would be furious with myself...and yet, I am in the habit of talking badly about myself. Of treating myself badly...berating myself for the smallest slip up and ignoring my acccomplishments.
This is something that I am changing too. I am worthy of loving myself. I am part of the universe's consciousness and surely that means I deserve to acknowledge the amazing person that I am.
I exist. I am stardust. I sparkle.
