School is out and the kids and I are getting a little rest and relaxation time in. It has been great to spend time with family and play in the sun. The summer is a truly rejuvenating time for me and I want to drink in every last drop.
I was putzing around my parents house and I stumbled upon a picture of myself in my twenties or teens, who knows. And I thought, oh wow, I look great. But I know I didn’t think that at the time. Like I didn’t think that, AT ALL, at the time. In my head with all kinds of crazy. Women should look like, women act like, women are skinny, women are toned, women look amazing and eat next to nothing, blah blah blah.
Let that shit go!
So it got me thinking. Am I going to see a picture of myself from today in 15 years and think the same thing? A wave of exhaustion rushed over me.
No. Enough is enough.
I don’t want to wait to feel happy, I just want to be happy. There is no pleasure in waiting to feel confident and happy about who you are. Feel happy now.
I know. Easier said then done, but it does sound great and for that reason I think I will try.
I want to live my life in the present as much as possible but I think I will view my body from 10 years or so into the future. Because this 47 year old self thinks that my 37 year old self looks great and its the truth!
