Day 2 – Committing to Me

Yesterday I wrote about how I was going come into March like a lion and I publicly listed my goals (haven’t finished my water bottle …yet :/ ). One of my goals was to show gratitude and appreciation to the people in my life. I as thought more about this I decided that today and everyday, in addition to others, I will appreciate myself. I need to learn to love and appreciate me. I need to reconnect…ok …connect to myself. I have to learn to love and accept who I am. Easier said than done. And I want this to be something enjoyable not just another task on my to do list.

In order for this to be successful I have to begin by reframing that negative talk that is constantly flowing through my head. It is like a rushing river after a strong snow melt. I have to start noticing the good that exists in me. I know there is a lot of it!

Here goes…

Today I did my workout before I went to work. I am proud of the determination it took to get off the couch and get it done. Now I am able to go and enjoy a walk with the dog when I get home from school today.

I remained calm and patient while I helped a student organize his area for the 4th time today. I reframed my own thinking by realizing it is a skill he has yet to master and still needs my support to accomplish. It wasn’t very hard for me to do and strengthened our connection.

Finally, I appreciate my focused eating today. I was on point with my nutrition. I have been working hard to lose weight and get in shape and I never give myself the credit for what I have been doing. But I am quick to admonish my mistakes.

So my challenge to you all is before you show gratitude and appreciation for others, start with yourself. You will thank you for it!
