Self Acceptance

Thank you for being patient readers. I'm glad you all still come back to take a peak at what I've been up too.Second week into my new adventure and I'm still adjusting to my new schedule. That will probably take some time, but I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel...that is, the light until the Christmas madness sets in. LOL

I can't promise that I will be back to a regular blogging schedule just yet. However the fact that I am able to post tonight that let's me know I'll get back at one. I did want to share with you some encouragement though. At least tell you where I'm at and hopefully inspire you as well.

I've been struggling with a few things lately. Mostly self acceptance. I am incredibly critical of myself. Incredibly. I always want to do good, perform good. My sister used to joke that when I was a kid I was an air head. I might have been, some people just are, but what I didn't always tell myself was despite being a bit a of a 'blonde' I'm still a pretty cool person.

I am strong. I am fearful but brave. I am worthy of love. I am worthy of good things. I have integrity. I'm pretty funny. I am one tough cookie, me. Yes me. I am beautiful. Despite my acne scars and pimples. Despite my 'wobbly bits'. Despite, not always having it completely together, I am a fantastic person! Why should I let anyone's opinion of me, dictate how I feel about myself?

Dealing with anxiety it's easy to let my thoughts of self loathing spin out of control. At these points I tend to reach out to my friends and family to help remind me that I am worthy of love. It's nice to hear it from others sometimes. However, I need to learn it for myself.

I need to repeat until I believe it. I need to believe it until I practice everyday. I need to act that I love myself. Body and mind.

I need to remind myself that no matter my mistakes or no matter my wrong doings, I can come back from them. That I am bigger than them.

Okay, I am off to bed. I've been up since just after 5. I have to remember I paid for this race. LOL that training life.
