We all know that moment.. The one when you look in the mirror and you are shocked to see that you look nothing like you thought you did, or the one when you have been trying to eat healthier and the progress just isn't showing as quickly as you would like. Guess what? That's where I am today, and something tells me that you might be there too.
When was the last time that you made a point of speaking words of kindness to yourself, or doing something out of the ordinary to care for your body? Sometimes, life gets busy. There are days that you won't get to the gym and days when that piece of chocolate cake or the homemade cookies end up in your tummy. I don't know much about science to back up this theory, but my personal experience leads me to believe that these small slip ups aren't what turn our healthy lifestyles upside down. I don't think that a little bit of sugar (although I try to avoid it most of the time) or a day of rest ruin our bodies. What I do believe though, is that the guilt and shame that they breed poisons us from the inside out.
When was the last time that you fell off the wagon gracefully? It sounds weird but, when you have grace for yourself and where you are in the present moment, it changes your perspective on your strengths and abilities. It sends positive vibes to your body, soul, and spirit.
Today I want to tell you that it's okay to be okay with messing up sometimes. You don't have to inflict pain and shame on yourself and begin a war within. You can choose to fall off of the wagon gracefully.
You can choose to see the masterpiece within yourself. The power is YOURS.
What words of kindness and truth are you speaking to yourself today?
