Learn from Mistakes, Forgive Yourself, Take Baby Steps
Mistakes will happen. Recognize your mistakes, & figure out how to take corrective measures. Take baby steps to learn from mistakes; forgive yourself; and move forward as slowly or as quickly as you can. Love yourself first, and you will be able to take care of your loved ones for a longer time.
Take baby steps at your own pace & NOT at someone else's pace. Practice making healthy choices every day, and one day you will not have to remember to make a healthy choice: it will be a new habit that you have practiced. Be the "tortoise" in your race to a long-lasting and healthy lifestyle!
I allow myself to mess up on some days. I realize that I am only human and that I am going to make mistakes. The key is to don't be so hard on yourself and to get back in the swing of things the next day. I don't allow myself to quit. I learn from mistakes and get back on track!
