Don't Beat Ourselves Up!
Friday, May 11, 2012
Thanks, Fran533, for these words. I was thinking about them last night. And many things came to mind.
~ having an off day (or week, or month) does not make me a failure. It just makes me human (hmm, in my blog "What I Have Learned", I believe I mention this!)
~ I am loved, strong, capable and significant JUST THE WAY I AM
~ I have nothing to prove to anyone in regards to what number shows up on the scale each morning. It does not dictate my day.
~ my body needs nutritious food, sunshine and exercise in order to do the things that are demanded of it, not in order to wear my white denim skirt anytime soon.
~ things are what they are. Period. Today stands on its own, not as a reflection of what I did or didn't do yesterday, but as a jewel representing the infinite of today.
And, now, I will go take my shower, take the dog for a walk in the sunshine, treat my father with love, humor and respect, eat the meals I have planned for today and exercise my body. Thank you all for your support. Some days, we need a reminder that we are not traveling this path in a vacuum!
