1 hour-what's the difference?

Thursday, February 02, 2012

I have spent 1 hour, sometimes more, sitting down and watching tv. I have spent 1 hour or more waiting to be seated at my favorite restaurant. Only to eat something that I regretted. I have spent many 1 hours on other things. Today as I was spending that 1 hour on myself, I thought about how long that hour felt. It doesn't go by as quickly as a tv show or the anticipation of a meal. I used to think that spending time on/with myself was selfish. Today as I was walking/running on my treadmill, I realized how good it feels to spend that time for myself. It's actually a good thing that it doesn't zoom by. I am learning to enjoy and embrace the time I spend on myself, learning who I am. After all, the real me has been hiding inside for a long time. Savoring moments like this last a lot longer and are much sweeter than food in my mouth. I used to have so much guilt with everything I ate because I knew it wasn't good for me. Now that I make better choices I can even savor those as well. So it's ok to enjoy a meal and enjoy taking time out of your day to take care of yourself. I read this: no one ever works out and then says "I regret that". Take time to love you today.
