As I am go along in our 3rd year journey I find myself struggling a little bit. I have some health issues that I am working on getting resolved this summer.
Today's quote is so very important; it's not about the skinny but about the love we have for ourselves. I finally decided to start loving myself by going to the doctors and finding out what is happening with my body. I decided that I was important enough to take the time to take care of me so that I can take care of my loved ones.
Too many times we put ourselves on the back burner and pretend that nothing is happening to our health. We keep ourselves so busy we miss the red flags that keep creeping up. We always say "we will take care of it tomorrow" but how many times does tomorrow come and go? We all do it; we are women, we were raised to take care of others first.
Do yourself a favor; make the appointments you need and start loving yourself enough to go get checked. This summer for me is going to be filled with doctor appointments because I have let myself go. I am 46 and I have 5 serious different things going on with my body right now. If I would have taken the time for myself years ago I would not be in the shape that I am in. We need to start putting ourselves first...in the air plane you are to put your own mask on first then your loved ones...while we are on the ground we should be doing the same thing. If we are not well we can't take care of our family.
Forget about being skinny...love yourself enough to take care of you...the rest will take care of itself.
Until we meet again my friends...
With all my love...Rita
