Accept It

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Even when things are riding high, and you are feeling good, even great, you can have a setback. The key is not to let it derail you. You might have to accept that where you are right now, is not where you are going to be long term and it is really okay. You are not perfect. Unraveling years of abuse on yourself and body takes time. and you may need to embrace yourself and know this does not last forever.

Me? Well, I started to have a meltdown this morning. I was feeling tired out, hot, and well, just plain tired of being fat and tired. I sat down on a bench I don't normally sit and a man from my building came to check on me. He walked across the street to check on me. He is very fit, and has 30 grandchildren and 16 great grand children. He came to see if I was all right. Geez. Nice, really nice, but did not help me to feel any better.

So I am taking steps to improve myself and I need to keep going with those. In the meantime, I recognize not to beat myself up for being someone I no longer want to be.

Baby steps. Embrace myself, and keep on keeping on.

    I am so glad he found you to be just fine.
Obviously he cares about you too.
You are a magnet to nice people.
Must be karma.

    Accepting ourselves can be very hard. Sometimes i struggle myself. We just have to think positive and carry on. As you say - "Baby steps". One foot in front another.

    You are absolutely right! Today does not equal yesterday nor is it tomorrow! Each day is new and habits have to be developed new ones for old! Great attitude thank you I needed that today! emoticon
