The Reality of Being Kind To Yourself
Because knowing alone gets you nowhere.
Here’s the reality of being kind to myself.
If I weigh 175 pounds I can lose weight slowly.
Over a bunch of time.
I know what to do.
Doing is the only way.
Knowing alone won’t get me anywhere.
Knowing to be kind to myself is another thing.
I know that’s a good thing.
I know I can do that right now.
I can be kind to myself in a millisecond.
“I’m not gonna beat myself up about the Buddha Belly but I’m going to start eating healthier every single day.”
My weight is the average of the five unhealthiest people I hang with.
My doctor pals aren’t that healthy.
We eat drug rep food.
But there’s you.
You inspire me.
Microstep: Perhaps you know it’s “good” to be kind to yourself. But enough with the just knowing part and actually start being kind to yourself. Like, now.
