So, I'm a few days from the big 5-0...an accomplishment really, considering how my life has gone so far, and all the things I've done in the past to sabotage it. But, the good news is I don't have to stay that way.
One of my favorite quotes is a Japanese proverb..."Fall down seven times, get up eight." So, I'm back up again, on Day 1.
I won't say, "This time will be different"...it doesn't work anyway. But, I can say, I'm beginning again...I can say I will be gentler on myself...I will speak positively about and to myself...I will encourage myself...I will say, "I can" where I can. I will choose the better, and not the worse. I will be more forgiving of myself when I do fall down.
