Is Anyone Listening To It?
I am so guilty when it comes to wearing my heart and my emotions on my sleeve! I am learning to be more mindful when it comes to what I say and how I think and act. I really want to focus in on the good and not the negative aspects when it comes to the body. I do feel it is good to talk about, but in a useful manner that has a better approach and perspective.
Why does everything have to be a competition with a race to the finish line everytime!
Why does everything have to be a comparision!
Why not be more supportive and build each other up instead of breaking each other down!
Why not enjoy the process of learning and growing and gaining as a person!
Like I have stated in previous posts I went there in the Spring of 2012! I pushed and pushed my body and then pushed my body some more. I set goals for myself that were impossible, unreachable and unattainable. I set myself up for failure before I even started! I want to feel “more than” instead of “less than” when it comes to my whole being. I need to be more compassionate and less critical of myself.
I can honestly say I had a love/not so in love relationship with my body and the way I looked. Then I experienced a pretty significant injury and that stopped me in my tracks. My injury has changed me and my perspective about my body and the way I look. I am lucky to be doing what I do on a daily basis and that matters the most to me!
I am learning gratitude when it comes to my whole being and just what it does for me on a daily basis! I know I have a healthier approach to living now than I did in my 20s. I am learning to love myself again fully and completely! I am taking the love I have for myself and expanding on it by tuning in and listening to myself from the inside out.

Talk about an eye-opening experience! I want to be proactive when it comes to caring for my whole being. The love and compassion I have for myself helps me take care of myself. I want to nuture and nourish my whole being. I want to celebrate the moments, milestones and successes as well as reap the many benefits and rewards that come from my hard work!
The hardest part for me is feeling like I am being judged and taking it personal as well as judging others and giving unwanted opinions to others! In those times I need to remind myself to be mindful as well as appreciative of what I do have in my life. My happiness comes from within myself! I sometimes step in when I should just refrain from saying anything at all when I hear someone talking negatively. I think I do this because it makes me uncomfortable and I want that person to find the positive.
