|This is the “time travel edition” because I actually wrote it last Friday but didn’t get around to posting it. So even though this Friday is different (no tears this morning!), I still want to kick this series off with the true beginning. . .
I started this morning in tears over the number on the scale. For the last year and a half, it’s consistently read 7-10 lbs over my “happy weight.” I don’t always cry at this sight. But today it was the gateway to a whole lot of hurt, and once the tears stopped I was left with the general feeling of not being good enough.
While I want to play with bringing a culture of ease into every day, I’m going to start with Fridays. It’s a different kind of ease than lazy Sundays; I’m not sure how but it is. Oh wait, yes I do know: on Sundays I rarely turn on my computer.
Today I will make my choices based on what feels good–physically, mentally and spiritually. For instance, my body is achy and wants to sit somewhere besides at my desk; to the couch my laptop and I go.
Because when I’m stuck and in pain, the answer is not to try harder. There’s a very good reason my theme for the year is Rest and Shine, emphasis on Rest.
