I saw a fellow spark page have this blog entry and truly totally loved it. Thanks for the inspiration!
To my body,
I apologize. I am so sorry. I will make it up to you.
I am sorry for the ways I have abused you and misused you. I am sorry that I mistreated you with poor nutrition, overeating, binge drinking and poor sleep habits. I have neglected you. I have mistreated you and I have certainly also taken you for granted.
I am sorry that I chose sugar, chips, fries, candy, chocolate, alcohol and television when I should have chosen fresh fruits and veggies and exercise. I apologize for the late nights of mindless TV watching when I should have been resting so I could wake refreshed for exercising.
I apologize for the wasted hours of needless worry and self induced stress when I should have been meditating and surrendering my cares to God.
It is time to move on and do better. It is time to be respectful to myself and to honor my needs. It is time to be mindful of my past mistakes but only so I do not repeat them. Not to use them to beat myself up.
It is time. It is MY time.
Healthy habits, positive affirmations and surrendering my cares to God are the beginning. Daily goals, sparking and holding myself accountable are next. Planning my meals and honoring my exercise plans, getting to bed, limiting the Tv watching and computer time are necessary.
I am ready to be thoughtful, to take care of me, to reach my goals. My vision is to help others reach their goals. I believe that everything I am going through will make me better prepared to help others but for now....I need to help myself.
