True? Necessary? Kind?

Monday, January 28, 2013

This was a formula someone once shared about how to talk about other people. Is what you're saying true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? I grew up in a family of quick witted and frequently sarcastic people, and I try to rise above that. I don't always succeed, but that is my intent. Today's challenge is to write myself a letter and treat myself with the respect, encouragement and patience I would extend to another. I will say that I know a lot more about myself than I know about other people. I know what I intended a lot of the time, and when I did something I knew I shouldn't have, but it's also true that many of my reasons for doing things are mysterious even to myself. Well, here goes.

Dear Tricia:
I am so impressed with how you are doing! I can really see a difference in you. And I'm impressed with the investment you are putting into maintenance. Just take it one day at a time, like you have done all along and you will do just fine. I am proud of your for being able to take a day off, I know how tempting it is to want to burn burn burn those calories. But it is equally important to get quality rest.

You do so great with drinking more than 8 cups of water every day! And I know you work so hard to get 6 freggies. Keep up the good work, and it will get easier and easier. Yoda notwithstanding, trying becomes doing and doing becomes enjoying. So keep up the good work!
Your biggest fan,
