“Be kind to yourself, be patient, you will find your answers. Love who you are right now—even if right now isn’t a place you want to be—you will always be you—start to appreciate yourself! You will feel so much better! And do not compare yourself to others. You are on your own special road. Be well my fellow travelers and know your path is a good one.” –LINDA SILVA PALLESCHI-
I remember this quote and I have used it in a past post. A post when things were looking better and I was in a more positive outlook. But this quote is really important for me to reflect back on. To remember. I have not just used it once before but twice and this, this will be my third time using her quote. Her wise words. Linda is such a beautiful soul. I’m so happy that she meandered into my life via the photo sharing site I was once very active in. I love the fact this this woman has impacted my life in a very positive way.
Right now. I’m not walking. Right now. I’m not eating very healthy. Right now I feel tired. Right now. I know what I should be doing. Right now. I’m not doing what is best. Right now. I know exactly what it feels like to be human. I’m actually really good at being human.
Sometimes I think it has something to do with my mood. I have been unmotivated and a little down lately but not because life isn’t great. It’s wonderful. Today I even found a feather in the parking lot when I left work. I looked up and said “Thank you God for thinking of me and for loving me so much even when I’m not so good” I stopped by the side of the road to enjoy the purple wild flowers and Moon Rebel treated me to a soda and bean burrito. But you see that’s part of it. The soda. The bean burrito. When I eat not so good and I don’t move much, I get down. I was reading a blog recently and the phrase “just start” was used. But those words, they are in the back of my head. They just need to move to the front of my head. We will see. We are celebrating Chinese New Year tonight. Maybe I will be inspired after a delicious meal to “just start” Plus today’s word is chocolate so I’ll be eating some of that too. Then maybe after that the words “just start” will come forward to the front of my brain. hee hee. Basically I’m just a human person with human thoughts and I’m being honest with them right now, right here.
Happy New Year. Now that’s a thought, its Chinese New Year…Clean Slate right?!! Tomorrow is a brand new day. And remember YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
