Looking in the mirror
Saturday, January 21, 2012
Don't be afraid to look.
I am who I am.
I am not who I was, well sort of. I was who I was, and that's still me, just it's not today.
I can remember what I looked like, but that is not the me of today.
I have to like who I am now, and I regret not liking myself more before.
I am going in the right direction, balancing and controlling what I eat, moving my body, increasing my sleep. Each piece is part of the puzzle.
Don't let regret look you in the eye.
Be who you are, and accept yourself.
Change what you can: how and what you eat, how you treat your body, accept your imperfections and realize it is what makes you you. Revel in being unique, a perfect one of a kind you.
Don't let the "I'm not going to look in that mirror" mentality take you over. Take a look and realize who you are, and where you're at. Don't ignore yourself hoping it will go away, it might just do that.
Be joyful that you breathe. That you have life. That you can move, and feel. That you can taste food. That you can see colors. That you can smell aromas. That you can feel heat, and cold, and pain, and the touch of a kitty's fur. That you can hear music, and clocks ticking, and bells ringing, and the voice of loved ones speaking loving words.
Look in the mirror.
You look pretty darn good!
