When I'm like this, I nit pick at myself:
"god, I look particularly large today"
"ugh, my hair looks disgusting"
"seriously sarah, pull your self together"
...and compare myself to those passersby on the street who look seemingly happy going about their days simultaneously putting myself down internally.
“One reason we struggle with insecurity: we’re comparing our behind the scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel.”- Steven Furtick
(Inhale), LET. (Exhale), GO. This is my yoga mantra on days I am feeling less than pretty-normal-happy-at ease.
Tomorrow is a new day and for some reason just typing this all out makes me feel that much better. Every week is a journey and opening up to the daily struggles, highs AND lows, are what paint the entire picture of oneself. A perfectly imperfect version of who I am in this exact moment and having the courage to put it out there without reservation or judgement. Weebly page, you are a good forum for my own therapy....thanks so much :)
