Peace comes from within...
Friday, July 30, 2010
It amazes me how much my weight affects my peace. How much the scale can change my mood for the whole day! I'm really trying to work on that. I'm NOT that number on the scale. I refuse to let that number take away my peace. This is the biggest challenge for me. My weight has been an "issue" all of my life. I've never ever been thin. I hit the 300 before I was 20 years old...I'm 42 now. I want to be healthy, but more than anything, I want to be at peace in my own heart no matter my weight. I'm the hardest on myself. I beat myself up all the time over my weight. I think I need to start loving myself more no matter my weight, no matter what the scale says, no matter ANYTHING! I think self love is one of the biggest keys to healing and can be for some (like myself) one of the hardest. I could probably find a lot more things that I don't like about myself than things I do like about myself. This is my task for the week ahead...to write at least one thing a day that I like about myself, and hang it on my bathroom mirror so I see it every day. So I see it when I weigh myself and when I'm getting ready for the day. Self love is so important...more important than most of us know. I hope everyone finds those sweet little things about themselves that they love, and hold on tight!
Much peace and love to everyone xoxox
