Newly authentic

Sunday, August 19, 2012

I was reading some of my older blog posts from a few years ago and one thing struck me after reading a few of them....how much I was trying to convince myself I was ready. I wanted to believe in myself I just couldn't yet. I needed to be mentally ready. I have been through a lot and I am owning it. I'm not discounting my pain anymore. I have a new attitude that is becoming more ingrained all the time. I see a counselor every week. She reminds me how great my authentic self really is and in turn I remind myself of it. I am gentler on myself more days than not. I'm there for my body more. I feel my sadness or anger and deal with it. I also allow joy in. Even though my personal life needs work, I'm working on me first and that will come. I'm learning that no matter my size I have so much to offer this world and...surprise!! I'm "releasing" weight. Not losing or dropping it. I don't want to find it or pick it up again!! Yay me emoticon
