What comes in will come out
Thursday, April 11, 2013
My dad used to tell us that whatever we put into ourselves is what will be coming out. He wasn't talking about food (although we used to repeat another saying "Fat eats fat"). He was referring to what we read, who we hang out with, what we watch and....what we hear and say about ourselves.
I found myself the past few days verbally succoming to that little voice inside of me that tells me I'm fat. I've even repeated this to my workout buddies, my hubby, my daughter and my sister. And, then....I started to believe it. The result created depression.
Whether true or not, it is vital that I give myself positive messages that remind me of the beautiful, mature, experienced woman that I've become over the years. Remember when they used to tell us to stand in front of the mirror and repeat positive messages about ourselves? It is time to reinforce those positive messages because we really are what we tell ourselves we are.
