I am beautiful and competent

Friday, April 19, 2013

I am beautiful. I am competent.

I have been struggling to stay on task. Not doing very well at it.

I have also started working very part time recently. I am a substitute classroom aide. Which means I am the new kid every day. I am only working a few days every month. Well I have been using the work time as an excuse to mentally beat myself up for being overweight. I also am hard on myself if I don't quite understand what I am supposed to do. I feel a bit off all the time because I am new most days. I am getting it. The people are very nice. But, I am not...

To make that stop so that I don't stress and make it worse I decided I need a mantra to stop it.

So today: I am beautiful. I am competent. (Repeated until I felt calm or got distracted with work. )

Although I have my doubts I will do this.

    Think positive thoughts about what you can do and what you will do better as you work your way on the trek to a healthier life.

    Please don't beat yourself up. You're doing the best you can under trying circumstances. I think we all learn to be self-critical when we're little and being domesticated. It's a method of keeping yourself in line, but when self-judgment gets exaggerated and oppressive, it's no longer working in your best interest, and it's time to dump self-judgment.
