Don’t be Dismissive…

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.

See the cut up fruit in the background? Having that on hand is very helpful!

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!

My niece posted this on Instagram, and it really helped me today.

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.
