Buddha Quote

Monday, April 19, 2010

"Each Morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most."

I posted this as my status today because I really needed to make it my goal for today. After thinking about it I decided I needed it available to me at other times so I would Blog about it and then I could always look back at it.

I had set a small goal this weekend which I failed miserable at. Instead of looking at all te positive I did this weekend I stewed about the goal I messed up on. I have been telling myself to let it go, but sometimes that is easier said than done. I am still working on going forward and I'm making positive steps today, but deep inside me I feel ashamed of myself. Sometimes we are our worse enemys.

    Buddha's quote reminds me of the conversation in the movie City Slickers about "Do Overs". I also have a similar quote in my heading and salutation. The minute we stop trying we have lost. It is just too bad we beat ourselves up over the slip-ups. We need to stay in the moment like Buddha, but then he was an exceptional being.

    After reaching my 100 pound milestone last week, I spent the weekend wresting with myself about resetting my goal weight to a healthier one and beating myself up about how fat I still am! I felt so disgusted with myself, I took down my pictures.

    It is funny how many blogs I came across today with a theme similar to yours...be kind to yourself...more forward today.

    Thank you for repeating a message I desperately need to hear. I don't know what has gotten into me, but it is a good time to be reading positive blogs like yours. Thank you! All the best in taking to heart your own message, my friend.

    We sure are! The best thing is that tomorrow when we wake up, we have the chance to make different choices!
