Ok, there’s really no such thing. But if there was, what would you be giving yourself a high five for? Can you come up with numerous examples quickly? Or are you stumped because you are really hard on yourself? Most people blow off their accomplishments and become hyper focused on mistakes. How willing are you to shift your awareness to recognizing more of your accomplishments than your deficits? Or at least accepting where you are at. Self acceptance puts you on the path to happiness. You will experience a higher level of motivation when you feel good than when you feel lousy.
“The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself.” ~Mark Twain
I must admit something. I’m the type of person who won’t attempt tasks unless I’m confident I will ace it. I haven’t announced being on a diet in years. One reason I haven’t dieted, is the shift of going off diets and focusing on “it’s a lifestyle.” I suspect it’s also because part of me is afraid of failure. The journey towards losing weight is difficult and emotionally charged. What’s worse than disappointing yourself? Doing it publicly! I’m different this time around. I might not have a weight loss this week. But I am ridiculously proud of my self for having my first chocolate free Easter, EVER! Today is my 2 months anniversary of no sugar! I feel terrific! My sweets free lifestyle has not resulted as a major shift in the scale. Just in my psyche and heart! I feel lighter on the inside! Today I am celebrating my ability to ignore the persuasive whispers that come from Cadbury mini eggs. What would the plaque on your trophy say?
