Yesterday I watched a video of my wedding. It was 10 yrs ago next month. In it, I weighed over 350 pounds. Every time I see myself in that video I cry and how I let myself get that large. I cry for person I was. However, I know for a fact, it was indeed one of the happiest days of my life!
I think we are always harder on ourselves than on others. I found myself being harder on that happy girl in the video, than I would EVER be on friends who are overweight. If they were I So why is that? It baffles me. I would NEVER treat them they way I am treating myself. It is time for me to stop being so hard on who I was in the past, accept myself for where I am now and my journey and move forward. I need to be a good example to my daughter, my husband and all the people I want to help in the future.
I would say that this is helping me to turn a different corner on the path of my journey and look at things in a new way. I need to live in the present, not in the past. I've heard this several times in my life. But I think it affects me the most right now in this new discovery. It is time to make the most of my present so I can be the best me I can be for my future.
I WILL do what this says starting now! It's important to live life to the fullest TODAY. We are not promised tomorrow!
Oh this is perfect for how I am feeling today. Accepting me for where I am in this moment. I WILL do this! How about you?!?!?!?
