Bring Love Back Into The New Year
(Submitted by a client)
At the start of every year many of us make resolutions, they might be to lose weight, eat healthier, get a better job… This year I have resolved to take better care of myself mentally. I have vowed to do whatever it takes to learn to love the person I am. I am going to develop habits that will help me wipe out the negative thoughts that take control of me sometimes. For too many years now I have thought that I wasn’t worthy of love, that I wasn’t smart enough, pretty enough, athletic enough. This isn’t true. I am enough and more. I have so much to offer.
About a month ago I read somewhere the following statement – “We can’t change our partner, we can’t undo the past, and we can’t make someone love us. What we can do is be the very best person we can be.” This hit home for me, the only thing that I have the absolute power to do is help myself overcome my fears and learn to love and trust myself. I can’t erase the mistakes that I have made, and believe me there have been many, and I can’t take back the mean things I have said. I can move forward from this day on and be the person that I would love to spend time with.
Be consistent, pick your path and then continue down that path… that is what 2012 is about for me!
