As I walked out to the coffee pot kicking myself in the rear and talking mean to me, I realized it was ONE WEEK. I've been working very hard for months, I've been exercising and I've been mindful of my sleep, food and water. What on earth happened to me this week!
I sat down with my coffee and began reading my devotions. and the first line read "COME TO ME WITH A THANKFUL HEART" screeeeettttch!
My heart wasn't very thankful this morning, it was beating me up and not seeing the blessings which surround me. The house quiet, the mountains looking beautiful off in the distance, my husband made coffee, I have a Yoga at 8.... ohhh sister CHECK YOURSELF I thought.
How blessed I am to have a healthy body, with all of its parts working and in good order. How blessed I am my lungs, liver and kidneys are all functioning in a healthy manner. I have eyes to see the beauty around me and arms to hug those I love ~ WHAT AM I WHINING ABOUT? deep breath
It is so easy to beat me up when I fall short. Now, had you come to me and shared.. I fell this week and it's showing.. I've cheer and raw raw and love and support ~ so why didn't I do that with me? Time to recognize this and change it!
Time to tell myself it is perfectly fine to fall off the wagon, dust off and pick your butt up and get back on it, make yourself accountable. Take a deep breath and remind yourself it was a few bad days (oh but good popcorn)! and pull up those yoga pants and get yourself back in the driver seat of determination, desire, dedication and love of self. That's right missy ~ you can do it!
This morning I'm heading to yoga feeling a lil' BLEK but full of a lot more of I GOT THIS! New day, new attitude and a heart that is grateful, each and every day!
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it Psalm 118:24
