Worst Critic

Have you ever wished you were someone else or maybe just a more improved version of yourself? I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t and I am sure I am not alone.

And, I am sure we could sit here all day and argue about how one gets into that sort of mindset, but that will only invite more of the same self defeating vibration, so let’s not.

Instead, I want to know once and for all, how it is that one may break these patterns of thought and allow themselves to be content with their imperfections, ALL OF THEM!

There is a long list of things I don’t like about myself or wish I could do better, but after another episode of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin, it dawned on me that if I were only able to conquer the demon of self doubt and find acceptance of my full self, it would eliminate all these ill feelings I have about my physical appearance.

And wouldn’t that be an amazing existence…

I am tired of feeling like I am not thin enough or self conscious about the many other nuances that come with age.

I hold myself up to these absolutely unrealistic standards of what beauty is and as a result I continually feel like I am less than.

And enough is enough!

From now on, I am going to do my absolute best to try changing these patterns of thought.

And when asked what I would change about myself if I could? My reply will be to possess the ability to love myself just as I am.

I am not sure just how yet, but I have a feeling that trying to see myself through the eyes of my closest friends and family just may be the ticket.

When my boyfriend looks at me he doesn’t see what I see, not in the slightest. He loves me just as I am, as I do him.

It’s time I listen when he tells me I am beautiful and more importantly, it is time I start telling myself.

Nobody is Perfect

It amazes me how much time people waste complaining and gossiping about other people…Doesn’t seem very productive or kind in my personal opinion, but then again I can’t say I’ve never done it. Just happy I am more aware of its negative aspects now and the effect it can have on those around me. Every day I strive to be more aware of my actions. 

Seeing my faults in others, helps in my journey to be a better person 🙂 

A Different Kind Of Life

I hold no grudges

Or dwell on the past

I  burn no bridges 

Or plot my revenge

There is no room for hate in my heart

Or regrets…in my life

For I have learned 

The meaning of the struggle

The importance of the pain

And for all of this I am thankful

Grateful 

For this resulting strength

And a different kind of life
