yesterday,today and tomorrow

Saturday, June 23, 2012

How many times have I let what happened yesterday effect how I live my life today. Especially when it comes to healthy eating and exercise. I didn't do so well yesterday, so what the hey, I might as well continue on with my bad habits today. Instead of letting go of the regrets I take the bad feelings and use them as an excuse for bad choices today. Like that somehow is going to make the guilt, pain, remorse go away. Never has worked and probably never will. I must find some pleasure in punishing myself this way because it just becomes a endless loop. Bad behavior, bad feelings about myself and then more bad behavior. How hard it is to take one day at a time and and start fresh with new inspiration and determination. I think I will not be so single minded , maybe be more open to my intuition and the possibilities of the moment. I tend to be way too structured and rigid in my thinking. Because I did it that way yesterday doesn't mean that tomorrow I can't do it differently. One way or another.

    Perfection is not required, only persistence.

    One of our other Babysteps Brigade members suggested this to me: take a shower, to symbolize washing away the old and making room for the new. I haven't tried it yet emoticon but it makes sense to me. A physical sensation to go along with letting go of our less-successful past.....

    You are right. Change something up!

    It reminds me of a funny story.

    A young mother was baking a ham and cut off the end as her mother had done and cooked it. Later she wondered why she had been doing it that way for years. It was because her mother did it that way. Later she asked her mother why she cut the end of the ham before baking it. Her mother replied that it was because it didn't fit in her pan!

    You can do things your own way. You can take it one day at a time. Good luck.

    Being open to change...that is what I'm getting here. Today absolutley doesn't have to be like yesterday if yesterday didn't go to well....but you can choose to have today and tomorrow be good days.

    Encourage yourself...even through difficulties. I think you are too hard on yourself...none of us...not a one is perfect. We try, we win, we lose, we fail and
    we get up and try again. It sounds like too many changes at once...make a solid choice that you can live with...once it is mastered...add another. I am with can get this working for and with you!
