Simple question...

How do I form an alliance with myself?
Not with my doctor, personal trainer, dietician, nutritionist, partner, family or even my friends...

Just with me?

Because I need me to count...

Until tomorrow...

    Sometimes I think we dont' know ourselves very well until we are forced too.

I thought of myself as a weak, shy and, I guess a victim of life in general.... when I went though a horrific divorce I found myself afterwards to be a strong, couragous and not taking sh*t from the world any more person.

Im not saying find something nasty to experience! *laughs*... simply saying perhaps evaluate who you think of yourself as... your instant snap thoughts on that ... then look them over and "discuss" are your snap judgements really correct?

    Maybe journaling would help??

I think we're in the habit of putting everyone and everything ahead of ourselves. BUT when it comes to our health, we DO need to give ourselves permission to come first. Does that make any sense??

You ARE worthy of making good choices to feel healthier, be healthier and be able to do what you need to accomplish.

There isn't any "one-size-fits-all" answer to that question, but for me, it really involved consciously dismissing the negative self-talk I had going on . . . making me feel I just wasn't worth the good choices I was trying to make to get healthier. That negative self-talk was me trying to sabotage me from succeeding. When I consciously began to filter out these thoughts, realizing it was ME sabotaging myself, I learned to give myself permission to do what I knew (and still know) is right.

Hope this helps.

    Wish I knew the answer to that question because I struggle with that a lot.
