I have wonderful friends here on SP. And they truly are a blessing! But at night, when all is still and the hungry monster is calling, I do rely on another friend. She'll lead me out of the kitchen and tell me how much all of this is worth it, and get me a glass of water and tell me how beautiful I am. She'll show me how to make more of a meal by putting extra veggies on that thin crust pizza, and make it seem bigger than it is, to feel more fuller. She'll affirm the positive everyday, so I don't get down if things don't go just right. That person is me. My own best friend. She tells me that it's ok and don't be so hard on myself, that I stuffed myself with that box of cookies or candy, and tell me tomorrow is another day. A new beginning for self discovery. To know that I am special and well worth the effort. We all have the power within us. We just have to reach out and grab that person and peel away the layers of self doubt and excess baggage that got us here in the first place. We all are beautiful, strong, mysterious, fun, adventurous and powerful. And it is up to us to bring it out in ourselves. We truly can bring our own best friends out to play and guide us through the rough patches. We can do it and we are well worth it!
