“EACH OF US IS GREATER AND WISER THAN WE APPEAR TO BE.” Look past your reflection in the mirror and see the truth, I am always, and in all ways, greater than I think I am. Bruce D. Schneider (Founder of the IPEC Coaching Program)
This brought up a memory for me from the 1990’s at a former employment of mine. I had a boss that was very authoritarian and she once said to me, “You know more than you think you know!” Yes, I do and I do belief that very much now! Yes, I realize that the word “authoritarian” is a judgment however, I just wanted to point that out, even so she could say something nice about me! J
I have been struggling with eating healthier my entire life as my Mom was a gourmet delicious cook and baker! I love to eat! This past week I came down with the flu despite receiving a flu shot in the Fall. I lost 3 pounds in a week! This is not a great way to lose weight however, I want to keep it off! I have many fulfilling activities and people in my life right now so I don’t need to fill myself up with food! I have my women’s group (7 women now), several new good friends and working realistically on finding a mutually satisfying romantic relationship. I have also enrolled in a painting class called “Awakening the Creative” at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY the first week in June. I look forward to this class very much and will have loads of fun, one of my new priorities in life!
The summer is coming up and I will look better in my clothes. I even bought some new ones for the new season and it feels good that they fit well! I feel determined that I will keep the weight off as when I obtain my energy back, I will continue exercising and dancing!
I love to cook and have a few healthy cookbooks to make new and enticing meals for myself. I look at myself in the mirror now, even after being sick and feeling weak, I want to stay looking a gorgeous, attractive woman! If I can’t say this, no one else will! To encourage myself, I will look in the mirror every morning and say to myself, “Yes, Lisa, you can do this as I am capable and greater than I think I am and know more than I think I know” in the same vein and a similar note as my former boss lady!
