I’m not proud of myself.. But I’m prouder than I was yesterday.
I’m not where I need to be, but I’ve taken more steps toward it than ever before.
I use to need things quick.
You know, like those ‘Lose 5kgs in 3 days with this delicious tea’! or ‘Get my meditation tape to quit smoking in just 2 nights!’
It’s hard to feel good, when you’re waiting for things to happen, instead of doing things to get to them.
For me, I’ve realised that taking each day at a time, is really the best option.
Sure, I’d love a quick fix to life’s problems, who wouldn’t? But that’s not reality.
Staying true to yourself, and focusing on trying to please yourself and not someone else, has such a satisfying feel to it.
Worrying about what I would think, rather than what someone else would, has been hard, and probably will continue to be hard, but when I manage to do it, man.. I feel like I have truly accomplished something for myself.
Take it slow. Learn along the way.
Get to know yourself.
You might be surprised and find that there are some things you really like. You might even start liking yourself.
I’m not there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.
