Some days you just want to cry. Today was one of those difficult days for me. We all have them and knowing this truth doesn’t make it much easier. All I can say is that I fully embraced the “suckiness” of day and now I am doing my best to let it go.
Before my weight loss journey, I could have easily buried my stressful experiences or hurt feelings. I could have just left it all unnamed and ignored my true feelings.
Since I’ve been reflecting every day I find that I am really learning about myself. Here is what I think so far, I am the kind of person who naturally has a positive attitude about the world. Most of the time, I can see things through a pluralistic lens – I can take other people’s perspectives into account. I am sort of an outsider, and it takes a while for me to feel part of a group. When conflict arises, I will speak up but it stays with me for a very long time. It’s hard for me to let things go. I need to work on that. I believe I eat when I’m stressed out to try to make it better. Well, after being really thorough with that method of stress reduction I can say it doesn’t work.
So today I opened up two tins of Boy Scout’s Popcorn for my son. Check out my featured image that was his snack bowl. I’m happy to say, I did not eat a single kernel. Although, I know I could have if I wanted.
I hope you had a good day, and if you didn’t I hope you can just let it go. More tomorrow…
