Letter to Self

Thursday, June 09, 2016

Dear Self:

The way I look at this is that you are either taking steps to make yourself a priority or you are not. You have spent years mindlessly doing whatever to get through your days. Making decisions that have made your life pretty fulfilled but difficult. Most of the time you have been stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted. It is time to create a life where you actually feel present and alive.

You have the opportunity to do this over the next ten weeks. Just consciously make yourself a priority. Make decisions and stay present. Don't let the emotion of the day, or the chaos, overtake your self care. Your weight is limiting, and it is time to let go of food as an emotional barrier. You have so many reasons to fight for your health.

I hope over the next ten weeks that you:

Eat healthy
Exercise Daily
Take time to check in with yourself
Try to get enough rest
Go camping, hiking and to some of your favorite spots
Find joy in the little things
Have Gratitude
Get on your feet financially and find a new home without getting overwhelmed, remember it is what it is.

At the end of the day I hope you will be proud of what you have accomplished and shed some weight and habits in the process. You are important.

    Great letter! We all need to remind ourselves sometimes that we are important, too. Recently I decided I was ready to stop merely existing and start living again! I am celebrating life again and actually looking forward to each new day again! I even had a "New Beginnings" party on May 1st to celebrate life and the things that are still in store for me. My new theme song has become: "Tell Your Heart to Beat Again" by Danny Gokey! Check it out, you can hear it on youtube.

    Love it!! We gain self-esteem by doing. We can tell if others love us by how they treat us. It is the same with ourselves, how well do I treat myself? Must be with love and care😀

    We all need a good talking to every now and then. Self talks are important. We know what we need the most!
