Time gets away from us, doesn’t it? I’ll admit it, I have this old message that runs in my head “I’m not good enough” and “I have to do XYZ well so I won’t be seen as an impostor. “ Those messages caused me to be too wrapped up in the details and not accomplishing tasks I wanted to complete. Well, we are all on the same journey of life with not enough time to do what we want.
24 hours is all we ever have in a day
Honestly, I was not posting and doing all I wanted to do because I got stuck in making things good enough and taking too much time perfecting and trying to do things just right. I now describe myself as a recovering perfectionist and you may see a few mistakes, oh well! Self compassion has helped me discover a key message we should all hear.
Your inner dialogue is holding you back!
Would you take to a friend and say the same things you say to yourself as you would a friend? Most people would not, unless you have already been on this compassionate journey.
Labeling food, bodies, individuals or groups is derogatory and does not help!
Let’s just say we all have unique variations, conditions, experiences and individualization is key, I can’t compare myself to another dietitian, woman, mom, or professional and you should not either.
Now, you will see more of me, the real me, with less perfect posts, so I have time for important aspects of my life. Family, education of professionals on post bariatric complications, intuitive eating and eating disorders.
