How generous are you to yourself? It’s dangerous to dismiss the helpful habits and and routines that make the journey possible. I could just take it for granted that i packed my lunch when I got home from work today, it’s just what I do now. However, that would be a mistake.
Even though I was hot, sticky, and tired by the time I made it home from school today, I still took the time to pack my lunch. Go me! That is a power move, that makes tomorrow just a little bit easier. I won’t be picking a random food left over in the faculty room, I will have the low or zero SmartPoint options available. These are the little things that deserve to be acknowledged with a little celebration, You did it!
There are some people in my professional life that seem to drain my energy. This can happen anywhere, and I am fortunate that I’m in a place in my journey where I recognize the potential impact of emotional responses and weight loss. I’m no longer dismissive of my feelings, and I find just acknowledging when I don’t feel good helps. I’m not trying to escape negativity, I want to experience it and let it go. I think that may be what I’m supposed to be learning.
