No one is going to accept me if I don't accept myself first. Today I will be a friend to myself. Not in denial about my weaknesses, but loyal...and kind...and embracing. Other people will see my goodness when I have seen it first.and gave me the idea to write about how much we - especially we women - bully ourselves. and, when we judge other women for their choices in partners, careers, parenting, clothes, bodies, etc, etc - each other. I thought I'd have an hour (maybe two) today while Sammy napped to work on the post and I planned to cap it off with a cute photo (because, after all, Thursdays with Sam).
I'm sure you know where this is going now, right? Yep. He was happy, played hard, ate great, and slept...not much.
Today I will be a friend to myself.
(I will focus on what really matters.)
and that will enable me to be a friend, a wife, a mother, a Marmie, a sister, a daughter ... to others.
I'm curious to see what others have written on the topic. Click here to join in!
