Being kind to myself

Monday, January 24, 2011

I realise that I am my own worst critic and if I don't always attain the high standards I set for myself, then I will beat myself up and feel angry, guilty and then sad.

This isn't helping me to attain my health, fitness and weight goals as I am knocking my own self-esteem. I need to learn to be kinder to myself and acknowledge the small steps I have taken each day and look for the positives that will keep me motivated. I have to realise that aiming for perfection is a fool's game (what is perfection?) and that aiming to do my best each day and recognising this will help me enjoy my progress

    Now that you realize this can you teach it to the rest of the women in the world? We could all use a daily reminder!
