I was taught to put family before myself even though the ones who were teaching me were definitely not doing what they preached. It took a health crisis to realize that I needed to start putting myself before others. If I didn’t I could die. I can tell you that definitely opened my eyes. I knew that I had to undo many of the things I was taught.
I had to let go of the things that I cannot do anymore, which is a difficult thing to do. I embraced all that I can do and love to do. I’m loving the person that I am becoming. I’m a work in progress.
I started to love myself and accept myself just the way I am. As Popeye would say “I yam what I yam and dats all what I yam.” These are definitely words to live by.
I want to tell you to live your life to the fullest, even if it’s sitting on the sofa binging Netflix or reading your favorite novel. That is living life to YOUR fullest. Say to yourself “I yam what I yam and dats all that I yam.” mean it and embrace it. . Most of all, love all of yourself just the way you are!!!
