I got lost and I'm starting over...

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Today I reread Phillip Moffit's Yoga Journal article on the practice of starting over.

I read it as I was working out this morning, after a night of very damaging binging. And it was such a gift to read it at that time. Because instead of spending the rest of my day hating myself, telling myself how worthless and disgusting I was, I enjoyed my day. I stayed in the present moment and focused on what I could do now to feel good.

I had a great workout. I went home and waiting until I was actually hungry to eat my delicious, healthy breakfast (at 1PM...really I wasn't hungry until then after last night), I took my daughter and her friend to the park because we had an unusually warm and sunny afternoon, and I made yummy, bountiful veggies for the family to enjoy at dinner.

All in all it was a great day.

I didn't live in my head. I didn't horribilize all I had done. I didn't spend the day hating myself.

I took Mr. Moffit's great advice, said, "I was lost and I'm starting over", and I did just that.

If you'd like to read the article (and I highly recommend it...), here is the link:

    Those words didn't come to you by accident! They were meant for you. Forgive yourself and try to love yourself. You are going through so much right now and life is being very hard on you, please try to be kind to yourself.

Sending love,
Kristin

    There's absolutely no reason not to start over! If you fall, just get back up!
