Posted by Me on 1/5/2019, 1:06 pm, in reply to "Title for a Journal...."
I had never put a picture on the board before and wasn't sure I could figure it out. |
So I didn't add any text to it.
But the other day we were talking of trying to merge our "eating mindset self" with the rest of our life segments.
This "Quote" is one that I think can go into any journal.
Daily life, Food/Diet, or Spiritual journal.
The two biggest time stealers of our present day? The day we are in "right at the moment?"
Number One. The time we waste worrying about what we did yesterday and Number Two, wringing our hands about what tomorrow will bring and how we will handle it.
And normally it is always thoughts of "The Bad Things we did"
Yesterday "I ate wrong," tomorrow "I have a meeting that will have donuts."
But good stuff that happened the day before or things that will occur tomorrow, can throw off our thinking too.
"Yesterday I was total "SS" and did 17 hours of cardio." "Tomorrow I will be in the desert for 22 hours with only Cambridge and water and a jump robe."
We let our mind go into places that tell us....
We could of ALWAYS BEEN BETTER yesterday.
Perfect "SS" drank 7 bottles of water, could of drank 8.. Walked around the block, could of walked it twice.
The video is only 4 minutes long, I could of done it three times instead of 2.
And tomorrow, we do plan but, we trip up and give up.
Beating ourselves up if we do bad or if we do great.
It doesn't matter how good or how bad we were yesterday, or how bad, or good or easy tomorrow will be. We only have today.
We have to make today count, or we will be wasting our lives.
I know two things for myself, only with the Grace of God and mindful awareness thinking can I stop the roller coaster of this ride.
For me, The Grace of God is always there. The idiot, soul sucking thinking takes practice. But I do know this, the more we practice self care thinking, the easier it gets.
We have choices. Even if we have to talk to ourselves "out loud"
(Ummm, yep I do,)
We Have "SS" "SOLE Source"
We Have "SS" "SOUL Source"
We Have "SS" "SELF Source"
Once we can make these "Co-Habitat," and just let that be ok.
Then we will know things are different.
That goals are different than just, "Pounds Lost" or "Inches lost"
We, well, I am still one big hot mess, but............so is everyone else, But I don't have control over them. I only have to worry about, care about, nurture, myself.
And as a women, I know how selfish that sounds.
But, you know on the plane where they tell you. "If you are traveling with a child or are a care taker of someone on the flight"...........
PUT YOUR MASK ON FIRST.
Put on that oxygen mask and just.....BREATHE!!!
JUST FOR TODAY.
