Compassion for myself

Friday, June 04, 2010

“All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness ... the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.”
-Dalai Lama

As I reflect on the past few months, my question to myself continues to be one thing. I've stuck to a regiment, I've walked away from most foods, but due to the stress around me, have I been compassionate to myself? I have lost track of one of the true traits I need to get to my goal? Self love. Have I taken my eyes off the the whole goal? I believe I have. I have not kept in touch with my wonderful friends here as I didn't want them to notice the sarcastic and tired edge I am carrying. It has not been in a true spirit of love for myself and others that I have been doing this. I've made it a chore not a goal to better myself, and I was frightened that someone would see through it. Someone did see through it. Me.

So let me apologize to my friends for not being here, for disconnecting and not supporting them as I should. I have not been happy with myself I know sometimes we all get side tracked but I also know I am a special creation and I am worth taking the time for me. Thank you for the continued encouragement.

May your day be blessed and may you know how special you are.

    No pressure, though. Yes, do be good to yourself, and that usually leads naturally to doing good for others, but it shouldn't be at the expense of caring for yourself. Be here for yourself first, for what you can draw from the wealth that is available. We'll be happy for that!

    You are so correct in that loving yourself is the BEST thing you can do for yourself. The rest just falls into place naturally when you have that on straight. I, for one, struggle with that big time. However, God tells us to forgive others as we wished to be forgiven and that starts with the Woman in the Mirror!!

    Keep loving yourself and keep knowing that you are more than a weight on the scale, the size of clothes on the rack, or the calories you eat. You are wonderfully made, beautiful creation of God. emoticon
