Gratitude!! We all go through spells of not feeling great about our bodies or our skin, and I realized I have been in that rut far too long. It’s easy to do everything for our kids and let ourselves slip into the comfort of feeling like an old tired mom. And, oh so easy to concentrate on the new gray hairs that have sprouted, the puffy eyes and the few extra pounds always needing to be shed.
So today, I have decided to change my inner appearance, I know from past experience that putting in the mental work on the inside, helps to transform negative emotions into positive ones. I am vowing to be kinder to myself about how I feel, I am going to appreciate one body part a day, even if I have to repeat a body part over and over, and I will say gratitudes… I am grateful for my family, I am grateful for my tea on crazy Saturday mornings and grateful for my tea on slow Sunday mornings, I am grateful for the messy house that needs cleaning and the dishes that need to be done, and yes, I am grateful even when the kids are arguing. I know I have a lot to be grateful for, so it’s time to put all that into practice and make some mental changes to get myself out of this rut.
